On behalf of the entire Kmart team and our friends at The Salvation Army, I’d like to say a big thank you to the local community for their tremendous support of the 2012 Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal.
Australia’s largest gift appeal has again provided much-needed Christmas cheer, distributing 443,322 gifts to people in need across the country, 2973 of those contributed by Kmart Bendigo.
We’ve witnessed incredible generosity from businesses that have taken it upon themselves to donate gifts to the appeal, and individuals who have made it part of their Christmas tradition to donate.
During the 25 years of the appeal, more than six million gifts have been distributed to people in need.
Without the generous support of the local community this may not have been possible.
So once again I’d like to thank you for your continuing support of this great and much-loved Christmas tradition.
