Give the gift of life : Food, Water, Economy, Equality, Education!
The Oxfam Unwrapped program is a great way to give a gift to someone while actually giving to those in need.
Oxfam gifts make a difference in the world, and you get to choose what you give! This is a great gift idea for someone who has everything, or anyone who genuinely cares about the state of the world. It’s up to all of us to make a difference.
Here is a small list of some of our favorite gift ideas for anyone on your list.
For only $30 you can gift the resources and education needed to help people plant sustainable fruit and vegetable gardens to sell at markets and put food on their families’ tables. Many people in poor communities around the globe don’t have access to the tools, seeds, and even knowledge needed to grow a garden, but with your help, they can succeed!
Let’s end extreme poverty. Planting seeds is how you grow a future!
When you buy a chicken for a poor family in a developing country, you are not only supplying them with eggs, an excellent source of protein, you are also giving them the opportunity to sell eggs or trade them for other food staples. $15
When you purchase “Dig A Well”, you’re literally giving the gift of life. There are many communities in the world whose only water source is grimy, parasite-infested swamps and mud puddles. Many of these people become very sick and die because there is no clean water to drink. This is one of the most important and urgent gifts you can give to people in need.
It also helps an entire community instead of just one family! $175
This is a powerful gift, as many children in developing countries can’t afford to go to school because of various expenses that their families can’t pay. Help take some of that burden away!
The textbooks range from basic literacy and math skills to agriculture and beyond! $22
