Council of Single Mothers and their Children

Don't let our kids miss Christmas!

Can you help us make Christmas special for kids who might miss out?

For many of us, Christmas is a busy time of parties and planning how to spoil our loved ones. But for low income single mothers, Christmas can be a stressful and lonely time with additional financial strain and worry that their children will be disappointed and feel excluded.

For over ten years, the Council of Single Mothers and their Children Vic (CSMC) have worked to make this a more joyful time for single mother families. This year, on Saturday 3 December, we will bring together about 70 children and their mums for a festive celebration. Our fun afternoon will include Mrs Claus distributing little presents, afternoon tea, activities for kids of all ages and a chance for our hardworking single mums to relax and socialise.

CSMC is a Victorian non-profit organisation run by and for single mothers to improve their lives and that of their children. We provide support services and advocate for the rights and interests of single mother families. We make our limited funds go far, but we need your help to spread the festive spirit this year.

How can you help?

A gift from you will support fun activities, a delicious afternoon tea and small presents for all the children who come along.

$25 pays for special Christmas treats like mince pies and candy canes.

$50 provides art and craft activities to keep kids busy and give mums a much needed break.

$250 funds an entertainer for the kids, such as a face painter or magician. 

$500 buys inexpensive gifts for Mrs Claus to hand out to the 70+ kids attending.

Any funds raised over what is needed for the day will be distributed to single mother families as financial aid at times of acute need, through our emergency relief program.
