What do you give the person in your life that has everything? A cauliflower, a sheep or a cow? Probably not, but you could help turn things around for some of the world’s poorest families this year, just by putting a little thought into your Christmas gifts.
For over 20 years CARE Australia has been helping people in the world’s poorest countries and in emergency situations. As Australia’s largest non-religious, non-political overseas aid organisation, their aim is to assist communities become self-sufficient and independent.
You can help by selecting a gift from their catalogue, which will go to a family who really needs it and in return, you’ll receive a colourful gift card that you can pass on to whoever you made the donation on behalf of. This is sure to be a great talking point for the Christmas dinner table and with many gifts to choose from, a lot of fun can be had selecting just the ‘right gift’ for those closest to you.
Give yourself a warm glow this year, knowing you made Christmas a little brighter for those not so fortunate.
