We are collecting brand new toys for children under 5.

This Christmas, HUG 4 KIDS want to give the little ones an ‘unboxing experience’ this means they get a brand-new toy just for them. Quite often the kids we help only ever get hand me downs and they don’t have an ownership feeling over these toys. A brand-new toy teaches them how to treasure and enjoy something that is just for them. Toys are not given out randomly, their teachers or social workers come and chose toys that the child would like, making the HUG approach personalised.

This Christmas we are asking again for your help to make these children feel valued and loved.

  • All we ask is that the gifts are NEW and for a child under 5!
  • Wrapped or Unwrapped
    • If wrapped please attach a description of the item so we can gift it to the right child
