December 10th, 2012 / Stephane

It’s that time again, when family and friends gather together to indulge in good food, drink and of course, presents. So, are YOU feeling that extra bit generous this festive season? Then this is for you. Take a look to find out how you can give back this Christmas and grant the wishes of those who are less fortunate.

Donate a Donkey to a family who needs it most


Practical Action is an organisation which works together with some of the poorest people in the world throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America with the aim to bring them out of poverty, working with different communities to develop a change in their lives for the better. You can help them simply by donating as little as £20 for a donkey plough and harness to ease the work of those struggling and desperate for food.

Help The Homeless

Caring at Christmas

There are many charities which are out there with the aim to keep homeless off the cold and dark streets this Christmas.

Caring at Christmas is just one of the very many charities which provide the homeless with a place to stay, food and general support over the Christmas period. 

Send a Charity Christmas Gift

This Christmas, instead of giving just once, you can give twice. Visit one of your local charity shops for your selection of Christmas cards. This way you’ll be giving as much as 44% of how much you spend to those who need it most. This doesn’t just apply to cards, but you can also opt for charitable gift wrap for just £1.49 which supports Cancer Research. Or give your friends and family donations for their favourite charities in their names and ask for the same in return.

Be Santa for a Child Now


Child fund international is one of the many that helps homeless or orphaned children, what was once a “modest effort” to sustain orphanages has now turned into a global organisation, helping children all over the world. With your help, you can give a child a brighter future and change an entire community for the better.

Save The Animals


To help the RSPCA rescue and save animals from animal cruelty donate whatever you wish. By doing this you give innocent animals the chance of a loving owner and a nice home. 

 Empty your pockets for a good cause and donate now. After all,  It’s the season to be giving.
