OxFam America Unwrapped for Unique, Charitable Giving

Does sending cash to a large, unknown charity seem a bit impersonal? Maybe you want to know what your money will go to, and how it will directly affect the person receiving it. I just found out about a wonderful charity called OxFam America Unwrapped, and it was right in line with my family's holiday giving goals.Here's the scoop on OxFam America Unwrapped:
  • Gifts can be purchased to help local or world charities. You can decide which communities are directly affected by your giving.
  • Items cost as little as $12! This means that you can send something of value to someone in need, and you don't have to pay to ship it.
  • Looking for a charity in a specific giving area? Choose between animal gifts, green gifts, or emergency essentials (among others.) You can make an impact in an area that means the most to you.
Looking at the site, there were many things that caught my eye. My kids even have some money set aside for giving, and they enjoyed looking at the site and seeing some of the items that they could buy. They included:
  • Soap ($12) - This gift provides a community with 20 pounds of multipurpose soap!
  • A dozen chicks ($40) - As farmers, I can't tell you how special this gift is! An HIV/AIDS affected household will get their own starter flock (for eggs and food.)
  • Train a midwife ($150) - This is a beautiful gift that keeps on giving, when a midwife is trained to delivery babies safely.
Check out the OxFam America Unwrapped site for more information. It just feels good!
