Give Twice This Christmas

Are you sick of giving and receiving unwanted gifts each Christmas? *Yawn* another icky t-shirt, oh great, more socks and a jumper... wheee...

If you want to do something different this Christmas, consider giving something that will not only make a difference, but will make you smile as well.

I am very passionate about giving OxfamUnwrapped gifts and have been doing so for the last 5 years. Just knowing that you are funding an entire year of schooling for one child, contributing to small business microcredit loans and training for women and buying mosquito nets, clean water, soap and farming training for people who are truly in need.

You can give these gifts and get a free card to send to your recipient to let them know what their gift has bought for communities in need of support.

Some of the great gifts you can give to family and friends include:

Seeds $10

High quality vegetable seeds to increase crop yield for farmers.

Clean Water Jar $15

Hygienic water storage to protect against bugs and other impurities.

Start a Small Business $14

Affordable microcredit loans for starting up a small business to gain self-sufficiency and improve quality of life for families.

These gifts are so easy to give, and your gift gives twice. You can give a card to your loved one and a life-changing boost to a family who will really appreciate the gift. All gifts are tax deductible.

  1. About 10 years ago My Grandma started giving everyone shares from the Hiefer Project (an American based program similar to Oxfam) and I am always just thrilled to recieve a card explaining the benefits being realized by this gift. Waaaay better than underwear of gift cards!
