How it Works


Every Oxfam Unwrapped card will help transform the lives of people living in poverty by providing foodclean water and other life-changing essentials.

Unwrapped gifts are gifts that we use to tackle poverty. Your tax-deductible donation can support projects like the one described in your card, as well as other life-changing Oxfam projects. This means your donation will be used to best meet the needs of a community. For example, we won’t give a community more goats than they need but instead help them tackle poverty in other life-changing ways. By working in this way, your generous support will go to where it is needed most.

How we spend your money

The purchase of an Unwrapped gift is a tax-deductible donation which can be used to support the project described in the card, as well as in support of Oxfam’s efforts around the world. The projects featured in cards are examples of a few of the many ways we work with poor communities to improve their lives.  For more information about Oxfam Australia and our programs, visit
