Spreading Christmas Kindness
In early 2019 I was introduced to an amazing woman named Sarah Page. Sarah is a marketing guru who loves food and was eager to work with me. If you joined us in June or July last year, or learned about us through any form of media, Sarah was responsible for you hearing about Foodprint.
Since our initial meeting, Sarah has become a great friend and I've has loved learning about all of the amazing charitable things she does, on top of her full-time job, her side projects and her family. For the last six years, she’s been running Christmas drives, ensuring that children and families in Women’s Refuges don’t go without at Christmas time.

The Kindness Collective Foundation became a registered charity in June 2020 and since then the network of organisations the group supports has grown. For Christmas this year, Sarah has secured sponsors to gift Christmas presents to over 550 children, aged newborn-18, in the Kindness Collective’s network. To complement the gifts, the Foundation is aiming to provide additional items such as blankets to keep kids warm, shoes for them to wear to school and supermarket vouchers to feed families.
Christmas presents ready to be delivered.
We would like to invite you to get involved with the Kindness Collective this festive season. To make it easy, we’ve set up a store in the app where you can donate to ensure that people doing it tough this year, don’t go without. Simply search for the Kindness Collective Foundation in the app and donate the amount you wish. The full amount (less the payment provider fees) will be donated directly to the charity. The store will be available for donations from today, until Christmas Eve.
Thanks for spreading some kindness this Christmas.
