The Smith Family was founded in 1922, when five business men decided to give toys to an orphanage on Christmas Eve. When asked their names, they all replied "Mr Smith" so they would remain anonymous.
Since then The Smith Family has continued to help disadvantaged Aussie kids, and today is a national, independent children's charity that helps disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
In the last year The Smith Family's work reached more than 126,000 children and families across Australia.
