Ungiven Gifts for the Victorian 2013 road toll

TACVictoria, the Australian road safety organisation, has been running “Ungiven Gifts”, a heart moving installation of 209 Christmas gifts that will never be given. Each whitewashed gift displayed in the Melbourne CBD symbolised a life lost on Victorian roads so far in 2013. The online campaign involved hundreds of photos, tributes and drive safely messages were left at #ungivengifts. Visitors can leave either a commitment to safe driving or a tribute to a loved one on the Christmas tree, or on Facebook.
