Charity gifts: giving a present with a feel-good factor
Charity gifts are becoming increasingly popular as people switch onto the fact that these offerings have an undeniable feel-good factor. Organisations such as Oxfam make the process easy by offering tailored packages that come with personalised charity e-cards. If you still need to be won over by this form of gift giving, consider the following benefits.
An array of options to choose from
There’s a surprisingly wide range of charity presents for you to choose from, so regardless of who you’re buying for or the occasion you’re celebrating, you shouldn’t struggle to find something that suits. For example, if you’re purchasing on behalf of an animal lover, you could get a gift that provides people living in poverty with creatures that help them put food on the table and earn a sustainable income. From putting money towards initiatives that provide families with goats, sheep or chickens to contributing to an entire farmyard, there are a variety of options available.
Other great causes include providing lifesaving soap and sanitation to communities, giving clean water to families, providing children with school supplies and kitting out classrooms. Whatever your budget and whoever you’re buying for, you’ll be able to find a gift that makes a real difference to people’s lives.
Simple and quick
The best thing is, as well as being worthwhile, charity present buying is easy and quick. You can search the web for great ideas and purchasing your gift should take a matter of moments. Also, if you go to an organisation like Oxfam, you’ll be able to personalise and send an e-card informing the recipient of the contribution that has been made on their behalf. This means no traipsing around shops or standing in queues and it’s ideal if you’re looking for last-minute or long-distance presents.
Whether you want a present for a birthday, Christmas, wedding or any other occasion, forget worn out clichés and consider putting money towards a good cause instead.
