"Virtual" charity gifts - not just goats and chickens anymore! - the little lioness
“Virtual” charity gifts – not just goats and chickens anymore!
I’ve started my Xmas gift buying (you know, the stuff that strikes me as awesome on Etsy and I manage to buy ahead of time), and also just general browsing of the charity sites for ideas that are also awesome and ethical…. and I’ve stumbled across a few things this morning that I need to bookmark for future use!
CARE Australia is also in on the charity gifts, with bee hives and musical instruments for classrooms as well as Condoms and sex education! CARE Australia is an international humanitarian aid organisation fighting global poverty, with a special focus on working with women and girls to bring about lasting change to their communities. They are a non-religious charity (as are UNICEF, Oxfam and Amnesty), which is a plus in my books!
Oxfam Unwrapped is one of the older “virtual goat” options, which I’ve happily bought from in the past. With ecards and “IRL” gift cards to give and send your friends. Some cool gifts are emergency toilets, wells and clean water, and manure. Sweet!
And lastly this one isn’t virtual, but I know people who need powerbanks, so why not an Amnesty one?
