I love Oxfam.
When I was in El Salvador, I worked alongside an Oxfam staffer for 2 weeks. 4 years later, the same volunteer is still there. She lives on nothing and works tirelessly– and I really mean tirelessly– for justice for the people in rural areas of El Salvador. She inspires me infinitely despite possibly not even remembering that I exist.
Regardless, seeing the impact that one limb of Oxfam can do in the seemingly most hopeless of situations, made a permanent impact on me and barley & birch donates to them often.
They have a neat way of helping, however, that lets you choose the area to which your money goes. It is called Oxfam Unwrapped and makes the most perfect gift.
Oxfam Unwrapped is my most gifted gift of all time. Ever. All occasions. Why? It’s not just an honorary donation, it shows deeper thought.
You can give your nephew school books. You could give your sister a school lunch for a child for a year. Or give your mother-in-law a stove. Give your husband manure. And your brother a cow. I mean, really, when you look, can’t you think of the perfect person for each gift?
The possibilities are truly endless and I assure you that this will warm the heart of the recipient, everyone in the room, and, of course, the beneficiaries all over the world.
Giving Oxfam Unwrapped is a great way of showing your children that you don’t need to give the newest, trendiest gifts to make others happy in a very thoughtful way.
Change the world with your holiday gifts.
