If you’re struggling with gift ideas in the lead up to Christmas, try thinking outside of the box and consider buying a present from Oxfam Unwrapped, one of Oxfam’s biggest fundraisers in the fight against poverty and injustice.
Oxfam Unwrapped’s catalogue is designed around the needs of the communities they work with, and each item has been identified as essential by these communities. When you buy an Oxfam Unwrapped gift you will receive a gift card to keep for yourself or give to another person. Each card relates to a particular project that Oxfam is currently supporting and by purchasing a card, the money you spend goes towards helping people living in poverty in the Pacific and beyond.
Oxfam Unwrapped gifts make for unique and ethical presents for colleagues, friends and loved ones. The money raised is deeply appreciated and has an immense impact in aiding individuals and communities to rise up from poverty and improve their quality of life.
The catalogue for the 2018 season has been revamped with a selection of new gifts. Through your choice to purchase one of these gifts, you will be supporting Oxfam’s lifesaving work around the world. You could be supporting activists in Vanuatu who campaign for equal rights for girls and women, giving girls living in Sindh the chance to go to school or helping to feed families that have been affected by disasters or are living in refugee camps. Kind donations will also allow Oxfam to help families gain greater levels of self-sufficiency by supplying them with things like livestock and honey bees, and by building water wells and solar panels.
Oxfam believes that there are so many ways in which we can lend a hand together. So if you’re looking for something more than just another present under the tree this year, or know someone who would appreciate the generous contribution, explore the Oxfam Unwrapped catalogue at Oxfam Unwrapped to find out how you can give a gift that could change a life.
