Oxfam Unwrapped Charity Gifts
I am a huge fan of Oxfam Unwrapped Charity Gifts. It makes me feel good to buy gifts that really make a difference to people’s lives.
This year I bought a pair of goats (they have a special half-price offer on at the moment, so it was effectively two goats for the price of one!).
An Oxfam Unwrapped goat is a valuable gift, for the following reasons.
- A goat can provide a family with milk to drink or help them set up a budding business selling their produce – giving them the chance of a secure livelihood.
- The goats are sourced locally and fully vaccinated, which means they’re fit, healthy and ready to supply a family with milk to drink or sell.
- Goats also produce crop-boosting manure.
- Because this gift includes business training, a family is more likely to get the best possible price for what their goat produces.
- When their goat has kids, they can go on to help another family or be sold to raise money for essentials.
- Oxfam often provide two goats which allow breeding. Beneficiaries can then build, and grow a herd of their own.
- Last year, Oxfam provided livestock to farming families in places around the world from Honduras to Somaliland.
Over the years I’ve bought a variety of Oxfam Unwrapped gifts to support education, beekeepers, vegetable plots and new mothers. Each year, new items are added to the range. For example, you can buy a ‘pile of poo’ to fertilise crops. The gifts are accompanied by training and advice so that the recipients can make the most of the items they have received.
So I hope you’ll check out Oxfam Unwrapped if you’re looking for last minute Christmas gifts. For more information on how it works, watch this video:
