Christmas Star Appeal

With Christmas only a few months away, we’re starting to get ready for our Christmas Star Appeal!

Kicking off at the end of October, this appeal enables you and other Wellingtonians to be a star to those in need during one of the most challenging times of the year. Your support will mean we can help families and individuals make it through the pressures of Christmas, continue working to improve their situations, and head into the new year with confidence!

This year there are many exciting ways to get involved and “be someone’s star” including:

  • Christmas Walk of Fame

For the third year our Christmas Walk of Fame will be displayed along Wellington’s beautiful waterfront for four weeks in December! Get in early and pre-order a Hollywood Walk of Fame-style star now for your family, friends, business, team or group! Simply head to our Christmas website here to place your pre-order and be one of the first stars down in December! Each star represents families being supported by The Mission this Christmas.

  • Christmas Raffle

After an exciting debut last year, we will be holding another Christmas Raffle – with more amazing prizes up for grabs! Keep an eye out for more information coming soon, or email to express interest in selling raffle tickets in your workplace.

  • Street Day 

Our annual Street Day collection is another great chance to support the Christmas Star Appeal. This year it’s happening on Friday 1 December and you can get involved by volunteering as a collector, or donating on the day! If you’d like to express interest in volunteering on Street Day this year, please email

We’ll have further details about these activities and more coming soon! Keep up-to-date here, or on our special Christmas website:
