Join with Oxfam to help fight poverty and injustice around the world; shop ethically this Christmas

 

What’s happening?

This Christmas, you can make a small change in your life that will go towards helping people living in poverty. What you choose to buy shapes the world we live in and can literally change someone’s life for the better, so choose to shop ethically at Oxfam this Christmas.

While there can be a common perception that fair and ethically traded products are more expensive, prices at Oxfam shops are set as a reflection of the exceptional quality and hand crafted nature of the products which demonstrate enormous skill and helps to keep traditional techniques alive. The price that an Australian consumer pays for a fair or ethical product from an Oxfam Shop makes a real difference to the lives of the farmers and artisans who make the product. As consumers, you have the power to use your dollar to change the business and market systems for the better and to make sure people get a fair share of benefit for the work they do.

Purchases from Oxfam mean that not only are you getting a uniquely beautiful and handmade product, you are also joining Oxfam’s global movement dedicated to fighting poverty and injustice around the world as any profit made through the Trading arm of their organisation is invested straight back into the wider work of Oxfam.

Oxfam’s efforts

One person in three in the world lives in poverty. But Oxfam sees a future in which no one does. Join their movement for change and help people help themselves in the fight against poverty. Changing the world starts here; you can do your part by shopping ethically this Christmas.

Supporting Oxfam

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care agency providing services in Sydney, including the greater metropolitan areas, Central Coast and parts of the Hunter region of NSW, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in NSW, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families. PRFC operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

Have you considered fostering a young one? PRFC undertakes regular planning and evaluation and has a focus on personal development and training. We are always interested in hearing from those passionate about making a meaningful difference for a child in foster care or a family requiring assistance. If you would like to become a foster carer and join our team providing effective and meaningful care to children and young people, please contact us!

We also provide family contact services, and these specialize in contact supervision for children in out of home care with their parents and other significant family members.

How you can help

If just one in four Australians made one ethical Christmas purchase this year, Oxfam would raise more than $2.2 billion for people living in poverty. That’s enough to provide clean water for every family in Zambia.
