Christmas. Every year that moment comes, when you must think of the gifts for your friends and family. Every year you ask yourself what’s the point in spending time and money in many little presents that, for the most part, won’t even be really appreciated.
Maria works for a communication agency. Her colleagues are young professionals, mainly women. With them, she shares the love for her job, and the pride to be able to make a difference in the lives of their customers.
Maria has decided that this Christmas things will be different. Her gift for her colleagues will be sharing the joy to make a difference for somebody elsewhere. The joy to enable four young Malawian women to get an education and reach their true potential, so that one day they will also be proud of what they can do and the difference they can make for themselves and their community.
Maria is sure this Christmas will be a special one. For her, for her colleagues and for four girls she doesn’t even know”.
What about you? Are you still thinking about your last minute Xmas presents?
We have some ideas for you to start from: from providing safe water that saves lives in emergencies to helping poor farmers to thrive and lots more besides.
- Soft Power Education – Buy a Christmas gift from the collection and transform a life this festive season!
- Oxfam – Oxfam Unwrapped gifts support our life-changing work around the world.
- Concern – Buy a Concern gift this Christmas and help children and families in the world’s poorest countries.
Your gift will go where it’s needed most and begin to make an immediate difference. Each community has different needs, so we ensure families living in severe poverty have a say in finding the best solution for them and we work with them to make that solution a reality. This means your gift has maximum impact and goes directly to where it is needed most.
Have a different and more meaningful Xmas this year! :)
