It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Here at Karuna we don’t stop for Christmas – our dedicated teams are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are many ways you can help us this Christmas to ensure that we will always be there when people need us.

You could donate to our Christmas Appeal.

“When Karuna started looking after my daughter Olivia it meant I was able to stop being a carer and just be a mum. I will always be grateful for Karuna for giving me that gift.”

Your donation today will help us be there for more mums this Christmas. What a wonderful gift to give this year!
Thank you.

You could come to our famous Christmas Market!

The season of giving is almost here and what better way to give back than to support Karuna’s charity Christmas market.

Karuna House, a historic Brisbane homestead in Windsor, will be transformed into a twilight Christmas market on November 29 overflowing with handmade craft, goodies and decorations.

Come along and spend some time in the gardens and enjoy the sound of live music while you shop for your Christmas stocking fillers in the knowledge that every dollar you spend goes to a really vital community service.

You could purchase a wreath to hang on our Kindness Tree

Our Kindness Tree will be back at the Christmas Market this year. Your purchase of a Christmas wreath in memory of a loved one will help to support our dedicated teams. The wreath is only $5 and can be purchased by calling our lovely fundraising team on         3632 8300 or by emailing us at

When you purchase your wreath we’ll make sure your special message is written on it and hung on the kindness tree. If you would like a photo of your wreath just let us know.

Karuna relies heavily on the kindness of others as just over 50% of the organisation's funding for home care comes from Queensland Health and the remaining money must be raised through donations.


If you would like to help Karuna continue its valuable work you can assist in a number of ways:


It was not just a question of caring for me as a patient; it was a commitment to honouring my life as a whole, as well as the lives of those I love.
