In store we’ve had some exciting new editions to our Oxfam Unwrapped gift range! If you haven’t already heard of Oxfam Unwrapped, they are donations that can be made in someone else’s name to a specific cause, making it a personal and impactful choice of present for a loved one.
A gift that quite literally keeps on giving, this gift buys a pig for a farmer which gives them so many avenues to sustain themselves and to start a business. Manure can be sold or used to fertilise other crops and piglets can be sold to other farmers to pay for food and schooling, making it a perfect gift for any philanthropic animal lover in your life.
Although Oxfam is known for helping fight poverty and hunger all over the world, we also provide aid to people right on our doorsteps here in the UK. This gift can help teach people new skills to help them find jobs, ease reliance on over-subscribed food banks, and fund action to push for measures to help fight inequality across Britain.
Although climate change ultimately affects everyone on the planet, it’s affects are already pushing those in poverty into more desperate situations from rising tides, extreme weather, and temperature changes affecting food supplies and crops. This gift helps to teach people about more sustainable and environmentally friendly farming techniques, as well as funds lobbying governments to tackle climate change head on.
Inequality is a worldwide issue, from Europe to South America. While the rich get richer those in poverty struggle to afford food and shelter, either because jobs are too scarce or because the jobs they have pay criminally low wages. This gift will help to fund campaigners fighting to make the world a better and fairer place.
You can follow the links to purchase any of these gifts, as well as a huge range of others, from Oxfam’s online store, or they are available at our shop on Low Petergate.
