Donate Virtual Gift

Send a Christmas Virtual Gift

Donate today and we will send your loved one this gorgeous eCard on Christmas morning.

Your loved one will also get to wish upon a starfish with a bonus sea star tree ornament to add a festive piece of the ocean to their tree – it’s a fun printable cut-out activity for the whole family to enjoy!



What will the recipient get?

When you purchase a virtual gift, your loved one will receive an email containing the eCard and a special message from you (which you can specify at checkout).

This virtual gift also includes a bonus printable activity to bring the ocean to your loved one this festive season. The eCard contains a beautiful artist’s illustration of an Australian red sea star to print out and adorn your loved ones’ tree this Christmas.

Virtual gifts are donations made on the recipient’s behalf, and we will be sure to let them know the amazing things that this generous gift will do for our oceans and marine life.


When will my gift be sent?

The recipient will receive the email on the 25th of December 2021. If you purchase the gift at least 24 hours before, the eCard will be sent at 8am. Last minute purchases are fine, but please note that it may be sent a bit later on Christmas Day.

Orders can be placed up until midday on the 25th. Any orders placed after this may not send. To schedule a virtual gift for a date other than the 25th of December, please order our Secret Santa Virtual Gift instead.

You will receive a confirmation email when your Virtual Gift has been delivered to the recipient’s inbox.

If you are unsure of dates or need to reschedule your delivery date, please contact us.


Are Virtual Gifts tax deductible donations?

Virtual Gifts are a special tax deductible donation to the critical work of the Australian Marine Conservation Society. Please refer to your tax receipt emailed to you after purchase.
