How your last-minute gift does good in the world

When you purchase a last-minute gift card with Oxfam, the impact goes far beyond your initial donation. While your gift can help provide emergency relief, it also creates a ripple effect that empowers individuals and communities, leading to meaningful societal shifts.

Oxfam and our partners are currently on the ground assisting people who are experiencing some of the worst emergencies of our time. From the threat of COVID-19, civil unrest, climate damage and systemic poverty, the fight against injustice is big and ongoing.

However, things are changing. Every day people are coming together and doing what they can to build a better future for all of us. And for many of us, one of the most practical ways to contribute is by purchasing a gift card for a loved one or by making a donation. 

So give a last-minute gift that does good!

Who would have thought it could create such an impact?

Provide a community with clean water

Without clean drinking water, it can be difficult for people to thrive. But in many places around the world, access to safe water and sanitation has been restricted by emergencies such as natural disasters and climate change. By purchasing a Clean Water Gift, you’re helping Oxfam install safe water facilities that benefit the whole community. As well as implementing this infrastructure, we make sure it is managed by local authorities and community partners so that things are maintained for future generations.

A safe refuge for women in crisis

Too many women are living with family or community-based violence. Finding a way to leave can feel impossible, especially if there’s nowhere secure to escape to. With a Safe Refuge for Women Gift, you can help Oxfam provide emergency accommodation and support for women who need to find their feet again. A truly practical gift that will help protect and improve the lives of women and children surviving desperate situations.

Purchasing a last-minute gift with Oxfam is just one way you can help in the fight against poverty and injustice. You can also choose to shop ethically with us by purchasing some of our delicious Oxfam Fair Coffee or drinking chocolate or insisting that big brands pay fast-fashion workers a living wage by joining our What She Makes campaign.

You can also simply make a donation or join our mailing list for updates and ideas on how you can make a difference in the lives of others, in a way that reflects your unique values.
