Give a much-needed gift this Christmas with Oxfam Unwrapped

What is Oxfam Unwrapped?

Oxfam Unwrapped charity gifts arE, without doubt, the best charity gift cards in the world.

When you buy an Oxfam Unwrapped gift, your donation helps support Oxfam Australia’s life-changing work around the world. And the person you’re buying the gift for will receive a clever card explaining how their gift is helping others. Your tax-deductible donation will fund a range of projects, including the project featured in your card. So when you buy a goat card for example, you’ll not only be funding goat projects but education, health, advocacy and emergency projects as well. All the gifts are real items that we use to fight poverty. And don’t worry, Oxfam never actually ships goats overseas, they are sourced locally.

There are gifts from all different price ranges and for many sorts of projects, including activists, animal lovers, birthday, Christmas, emergency, gardening, occasions, parents and teachers, women and girls.

Oxfam Unwrapped is a chance for you to share with your family, friends or loved ones the gift of making a real difference to someone’s life.

More than 1 million Oxfam Unwrapped gifts have been purchased from the quirky charity gift range since the program began in 2005, raising over $40 million for Oxfam’s life-changing work.

Now celebrating its 10th anniversary year, Oxfam Unwrapped spokesperson Jez Hunghanfoo is encouraging all Australians to shop for a good cause and make a real difference this Christmas with Unwrapped

“Looking back at the last 10 years of the Unwrapped program, the impact these gifts and donations have had on the lives of families living in poverty is astounding,” Mr Hunghanfoo said.

“We believe Australians have shown such great support for Unwrapped because it really appeals to our national sense of humour and fun. The silliness of receiving something as unusual as a goat for Christmas generally gets a good laugh.

“Both giving and receiving a gift which benefits someone living with so little also makes people feel really good at a time when consumerism is at its peak. And it’s definitely more interesting than the usual stocking fillers!

“We’re encouraging everyone to give someone an Oxfam Unwrapped gift this year and help us make a real difference in communities both here and overseas. And don’t forget to include one on your own Christmas wish list!”

The 2014 Oxfam Unwrapped Christmas catalogue includes products ranging from $9 to $150. For more information and to purchase your Oxfam unwrapped gift visit www.oxfamunwrapped.com.au or your local Oxfam Shop.
