OxFam America Unwrapped – Giving Gifts That Last

It is now the last day of the year, the major gift giving holidays are almost over. However, the need for gifts never ends. Most people who gave gifts to their children are amazed that the piles of gifts that costs so many dollars and so many hours of work are sitting on the floor in the middle of the room and the children are claiming to be bored.  As a result, many people are wishing they had spent their money differently this holiday season.

If you are one of those people, I suggest you check out Oxfam America. More specifically, I encourage you to check out the gifts at Oxfam America Unwrapped.  These are gifts that will be appreciated by the recipients nd their families, long after the gift is received. In addition, you can give these gifts all year long. They will always be the right size and they will always be in style. Check out a few of the interesting things you can give:


Goat          Plant a vegetable garden        Building tools        Books for kids

   Goat $50                                Veg. Garden $30           Building Tools $25           Kids Books $25


Honey bees      Help start a farmers' market           A school meal program for one child         A couple of goats

Honey Bees $18          Start Farmers Mkt $25     Meal Program $35           Two Goats  $100


These are those wonderful types of gifts that keep giving. That is the wonderful thing about Oxfam America Unwrapped gifts is that they are gifts that make life better in a real and easily recognizable way.  Goats provide milk and their grazing helps maintain the land.  A vegetable garden can provide food for a family who can give seeds to another family and result in two gardens.  A gift of honey bees provide honey and the spreading of pollen by the bees  helps plants to grow.   The uses of these gifts from Oxfam America Unwrapped are endless.

Gift giving from the Oxfam America Unwrapped catalogue of items is gift giving that can take place all year long.  With a simple $1.00 per day you can send an Oxfam America Unwrapped gift each month. Think about what an impact it will have on your children to give a useful present to a needy family each month. This would teach your children to help others to help themselves. It would also help them understand how fortunate they are since they are able to give to others. Wouldn’t it be nice to look back at the end of 2013 and see that your family has made life better in a real and concrete way for families in need around the world?  Let’s start today.
