The power of your kindness.

When you donate to Australian Red Cross you can support someone in prison to make positive changes in their lives. Turn a phone call into a life-line for someone struggling with loneliness and isolation. Provide a safe home for a refugee family. And so much more.

Your small act of kindness today can change a life and shows people who have found this year particularly hard, there is hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Kind ideas change lives.

Empowering people in prison with skills, education and self-belief helps make prison communities healthier and safer. We support people to break a cycle of disadvantage and make positive changes in their lives when they go home.

Kind words conquer loneliness.

Quintina was isolated and feeling overwhelmed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Daily wellbeing phone calls from our trained volunteers helped her feel safe, calm and connected again.

Kind acts create community.

Every year, families arrive on our shores having escaped the horrors of war. We welcome them into the community, provide the essentials they need, and give them a safe home, at last.
