Christmas means shopping…
We know it’s not true, but still…
We do spend a lot of time shopping as we prepare for Christmas, food, gifts, decorations…
Here’s a few ideas for people who would like to find a way to give back this year, why not buy someone you love a goat, or fresh water, or support a town’s education or health? These ideas are great ways to give with compassion, intentionality, hope and joy.
Everything In Common
Everything in Common is UnitingWorld’s ethical gifts catalogue. Each gift represents a life-changing project that is helping people across the Pacific, Asia and Africa break the cycle of poverty and step towards a life of dignity.
Your gift is more than a goat or chicken, it’s real impact! For example, the goat you give comes wrapped in a project; with training in livestock care, business and financial planning so a family can earn a sustainable income.
For decades, through the Christmas Bowl, Australian churches across denominations have been instrumental in responding to some of the most urgent crises of our time.
Last year, 1,200 churches celebrated the Christmas Bowl by bringing much needed shelter and medical care to communities affected by conflict and disaster around the globe.
This year, for our brothers and sisters in urgent need around the world, those already struggling as a result of conflict and disaster, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic are catastrophic.
Through this year’s Christmas Bowl we are actively responding to this crisis; coming together to stand alongside these vulnerable communities through this pandemic – and towards a more secure future – by providing vital food, medical care and support.
Your gift will support local partners around the world to both meet urgent need and create change that lasts. You can stand alongside local communities through this pandemic – and towards a more secure future – by providing vital food, medical care and support.
Useful Gift Catalogue
Choose a gift. Send a card. Fight poverty!
Every item in Tearfund’s Gift Catalogue represents a contribution to a long-term poverty-fighting project run by one of Tearfund’s Christian partners. Each project is tailored to that community’s needs, helping people gain the skills and resources they need to address local problems and come up with sustainable solutions.
If you’d like to give to a local organisation that’s doing amazing work then why not give to Companion House this year?
Companion House is a non government community based organisation. We work with adults and children who have sought safety in Australia from persecution, torture and war related trauma. We believe that people who have survived torture, trauma and human rights violations should have access to services that respect, empower and promote recovery.
