Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

A long-es­tab­lished Christ­mas tra­di­tion looks to be big­ger and bet­ter this sea­son.

The Kmart Wish­ing Tree Ap­peal is now in its 19th year of sup­port­ing Kiwi fam­i­lies around the coun­try.

This year or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing to col­lect 40,000 gifts to be dis­trib­uted by The Sal­va­tion Army.

To par­tic­i­pate, peo­ple can buy a gift then col­lect a tag from any Kmart store to jot down the re­cip­i­ent’s in­tended age and gen­der. Gifts can then be placed un­der the tree. Kmart wel­comes gifts bought from any re­tailer.

The Wish­ing Tree Ap­peal runs un­til De­cem­ber 24.

Giv­ing spirit: The Kmart Wish­ing Tree Ap­peal is in its 19th year.
