These 5 charity gifts that won’t break the bank, but might just change someone’s life.

oxfam-chicken

Give the gift of chickens through oxfam unwrapped for £10. The chickens are vaccinated and come with training on how to keep them in order to provide a constant supply of eggs to a family in need.

water-pump

Donating this water filter through save the children will provide safe drinking water for children in areas where water sources can be contaminated.

mosquito-net

Mosquito nets are cheap and can be life-saving by preventing the spread of Malaria. For £7 Oxfam unwrapped will donate a mosquito net and instructions on how to use to someone in need.

textbooks

Textbooks are expensive and their lack can be a barrier to learning. For £12 you can give textbooks to children who need them through save the children.

snow-leopard

If you’re an animal-lover, you can adopt a snow-leopard through WWF for as little as £3 a month. These beautiful animals are endangered and your donation can help protect them through programmes that train anti-poaching patrols, monitor animal numbers and promote the sustainable use of natural resources in their habitat.

  1. Have you heard of heifer.org? I received a catalog from them this year and on a whim flipped through it. It’s a cool idea — they give a family a goat, or some rabbits, or chickens, and then let nature take over and the animals produce milk/fur/wool/etc. and have offspring so it can become a self-sustaining business for the family.
