The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) is a not-for-profit, member-funded organisation advocating for the future of Australia's children. We work on behalf of long day care owners and operators to ensure families and their children have an opportunity to access early childhood education and care (ECEC) throughout Australia.

The ACA would like to thank those members along with the kids, parents and staff who were involved in raising funds for our Project Rudolph initiative over the last few weeks.

Some of our members organised bake sales, others encouraged the children to dress up in Christmas theme, two of our members in Queensland held an auction of the children’s art, and some raised funds with a simple donation box. We hope that the children enjoyed getting involved and helping others less fortunate.

Thanks to your efforts we have arranged for the delivery of 48 meal boxes for delivery to struggling Aussie families this Christmas. These will include the essential ingredients for a family dinner – roast meat, veggies carrots, spuds, pumpkin and Christmas cake.

Our friends at Aussie Farmers Direct and Foodbank will make sure the fresh food hampers are delivered to eligible families across Australia during the week before Christmas. We hope that the families who receive these meal boxes enjoy a festive, joyful Christmas Day.

Thank you again to everyone involved in this positive outcome.
