Swap your stocking stuffers with clean water, nutritious meals and an education for those in need.
While we love turkey dinners and festive trimmings as much as the next person, Christmas is ultimately a time of giving, and this should extend beyond family and friends to those in the wider community. With the turbulent year we’ve had, it’s important to think of those in need and find ways you can help end their 2020 on a high note. Luckily, Oxfam Hong Kong is making it easier than ever to do just that with Oxfam Unwrapped. Keep reading to find out more…
Featuring a range of gifts that give back, Oxfam Unwrapped allows you to make a real difference to the lives of low-income families in Hong Kong and women from poor households who’ve been badly affected by COVID-19. Simply browse through the different gifts you can donate to those in need, all on behalf of your loved ones. You can help farmers rake in a better income with a set of livestock, give young women the chance to receive a proper education, provide clean water to poor communities abroad or send nutritious meals to low-income families here in Hong Kong by sending out Oxfam ‘Give A Meal’ Meal Kits (as pictured below).
Let’s face it, your dad doesn’t need another pair of socks and your mum certainly has enough woolly robes to last her all winter. So why not give them something a little more meaningful this year? Knowing you’ve made a difference to someone’s life, no matter how small, brings a kind of joy that no stocking stuffer ever could.
Alternatively, why not suggest to your family or friends that instead of spending on Secret Santa gifts this year, you pool your gift money together to buy one of the special gift sets? As a token of appreciation, Oxfam will send donors a card (or e-card) telling them how their gift is helping to fight poverty. Remember, every dollar counts!
