Be the reason someone smiles this Christmas
A home is so much more than a roof over your head – it’s a place of refuge, and a foundation for families and communities.
Our disaster relief tents give families a safe place to call home after disaster, where they can start rebuilding their lives.
This Christmas, you can honour someone special in your life and pay it forward to someone in need by giving the gift of home for $500.
Make the world of difference
What may look like a luxury camping experience for some is in fact a semi-permanent home for others.

I’m safe in this house. When I didn’t have a house, I suffered a lot. This is my privilege, to have this house.
