Everyone should be happy at Christmas, but sadly it’s not always the case. For many, a good Christmas is one where the lights stay on. That doesn’t leave much left for food or presents. Basket Brigade is working to change that.

Basket Brigade Australia is active in every mainland state, 11 cities in all. The mission is simple. They collect donations from generous Australians and deliver them to people that struggle at Christmas.

The donations include food, toys, or cash to help turn the donations into baskets, ready for delivery.

The local program, run by Magic Moments, is part of an international network of volunteers, over 1500 of those in Australia. The brand was founded by motivational maverick Anthony Robbins, inspired by when his family was gifted a Christmas basket when it was needed most.
