Oxfam Unwrapped is a way for you to give a loved-one the opportunity to change someone’s life. Why spend £5 on a box of chocolates when you could spend £5 on fertiliser that helps to build and sustain a farming community in Africa?
Whether your budget is £5 or £5000, there’s something for everyone at Oxfam Unwrapped. There’s nothing like saying- ‘Happy Christmas, I drilled a bore-hole in Africa for you’- and now you can do just that. For £3,946, you can fund everything it takes (labour, pumps, drilling and maintenance) to provide sustainable fresh water to a whole community.
Next time your eight-year old daughter asks for a pony, get her a goat. Or, for £50, get her two! Healthy, vaccinated and ready to mate, these goats produce milk, fertiliser and offspring, meaning your ‘donation’ will never run out like cash does. No mucking out for you, either.
Once you’ve selected the appropriate gift from the online list of categories- ‘animal lovers’, ‘the business minded’, ‘foodies’, ‘for the girls’ and so on, you then get the option to send a printed gift card. This could either feature a picture of the gift, or an image to suit the occasion. You can then choose to add a ‘little extra’ for a personal touch- whether a bag of chocolate coins or an Oxfam calendar.
Donating or volunteering for charity is a fantastic way to help others. Helping others feels good, too- making you happier and healthier. If you would like advice on how to improve your life, you may benefit from visiting a life coach.
