The best gift you can give this holiday season is an Oxfam gift. Oxfam is a nonprofit organization that funds projects worldwide in an effort to end injustice of poverty.
The gifts you purchase for friends, family and colleagues is an actual donation. Oxfam will apply those funds where it is needed and the person you've purchased the gift for will receive a vibrant card. Your gift will bring attention to this worthy cause, put a smile on someones face and benefit those who are less fortunate.
This innovative, charitable concept is brilliant. I would love to receive a card with a cute, baby chick that says, "I Bought A Dozen Chicks For You". A donation made in my honor is the best present.
Oxfam gifts has an extensive catalog of charitable gifts that you can choose from. There are animal, sustainable, water, women and children, education, making a living and emergency necessities gifts. The gifts range from $18 to a $2500 investment in a small business.
When you choose your gift you have the option to print your own card (download a PDF), eCard (sent via email) or no card. The picture above shows how the printed card will appear. I like to email the cards. The thoughtful designs are well done, colorful and informative.
The eCard reads, "Hello (insert name). You received an Oxfam gift from (insert name)". As the receiver scrolls through the card the gift is stated and a brief summary about Oxfam Gifts appears. The receiver then has the option to browse other gifts or share the gift they received.

Oxfam America is a member of Oxfam - an international charitable organization that addresses issues that keep people poor. These issues include inequality, discrimination and lack of access to necessary resources. With the assistance of Oxfam, those who are less fortunate can gain water, food and land. Oxfam Gifts make this happen.
I absolutely LOVE this charitable program. Oxfam Gifts has an online catalogue of charitable gifts for people in need. You simply choose a gift that suits the occasion or person your gifting, and purchase it in their honor. Your friend or family member will receive a card with a photo of your gift printed on the front and information about the donation inside. You can also opt for a PDF version of the card and send it electronically, or print it yourself.
Here's the best part - the gifts. The symbolic gifts range from $12 to $5000 and include drinking water, household items, tools, farming supplies, animals, education, training, and you can even help to build a girls school. It's sad to learn that there are people who don't even have toilets - a luxury many of us take for granted. Through Oxfam Gifts you can purchase an emergency toilet. I can only imagine what a difference a toilet would make.
I really like the animals. If you know someone who is an animal lover, this is the perfect gift that will make them happy while enhancing the lives of others. You can purchase baby chicks, chickens, goats (my favorite), pigs, cows, sheep and ducks. Each card has a cute photo of the animal and explains that it was purchased in their honor.
I love giving gifts, and am a self-proclaimed master at finding amazing gifts. This is my favorite gift idea for 2017. I'm very fortunate to be able to say that most of the people in my life are not in need of anything. It's nice to exchange gifts, but that money can be spent on more productive items such as charitable gifts. Oxfam Gifts are my go-to gift idea this year. I'm sure everyone who will receive a goat or a pig from me, will feel good about it.
