Q. How long has the party been going?
A. The Parties were born out of a request from The United Nations, in 1979, to help celebrate the International Year of the Child. Since that time they have given children, who may otherwise have missed out on the round of Christmas activities, the chance to gather and share the magic of the Festive Season with a group larger than their immediate circle of family and carers.
Q. What sort of children attend?
A. There are four major categories of children attending the party. Children with life threatening illnesses e.g. Children with Cancer, Leukaemia; Children that are physically impaired e.g. Muscular Dystrophy; Children that are intellectually impaired e.g. Down Syndrome; and finally Children that come from severely underprivileged circumstances.
Q. Where do you source the children from?
A. We contact government and charitable organisations who deal with these children on a daily or weekly basis. e.g. Special Schools, Special Education Units, Leukaemia Foundation, Cerebral Palsy League, Women's Refuges, Department of Families and Shelters. Due to the privacy act, we are not allowed to know the names of children who attend, so we rely on the department heads of organisations such as these to apply on the children's behalf
Q. I have children that are eligible to attend the party, where can I findout more information?
A. Please contact (08) 8342 3600
Q. Is the advertising package available tax deductible?
A. As the package is classed as advertising, you may be able to claim the full amount as a tax deduction
Q. Why is there a G.S.T. (Goods & Services Tax) on the package?
A. Again, because the amount is classed as advertising, we have to charge an amount of 10% G.S.T.
Q. Can I offer product rather than monetary support?
A. Yes of course! We have many sponsors that help the event by contributing goods in kind - see our contact us page.
Q. Can I volunteer at the party?
A. Of course you can! There are many volunteering opportunities at the event, please contact us.
