Oxfam America Unwrapped




Christmas is an exciting time for most families, and it is definitely a time when my kiddos cannot wait to ask Santa for just about every toy they have seen on TV the last month. My daughter, who is 12, is just as anxious and excited to see what "goodies" she can get this Christmas as her two younger brothers. It does bother me, alot, to see such materialism around the holidays. And I always look for ways to help my children understand how fortunate they are and how we should all do what we can to help those less fortunate.
 Oxfam America Unwrapped has provided a way for my daughter and I to help another family or entire community this season, and for my daughter to experience the wonderful feeling of giving. When you buy a gift from OxfamGifts.com, your recipient gets a card with the image of your specific gift and the money goes toward providing lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and injustice in over 100 countries.
It is simple. You select a gift from the 60 items they have. From a school meal program for one child for only $25.00 to rebuild a primary school for $1500, there is a gift for everyone that will be the perfect one.
After you select the gift, you’ll receive a free card with the image of your specific gift. You can personalize the card online and have it sent directly to your friend or loved one. Or you can have the card delivered to you to write your own message.

Your donation will go to the people who need it, and where it will have the greatest impact: to improve the lives of people living in poverty. Oxfam America is committed to creating lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and social injustice.
Our family has much to be grateful for. No, things are not perfect, and there are many problems we deal with daily. But I know in my heart we are very lucky and blessed, and all of us take so much granted everyday. I hope everyone can take a look at the Oxfam site, and help provide things, water, for instance, for those in need.
And to see  how your donation affects the lives of people around the world, log on to the Oxfam America Unwrapped website and click on the “How your donation helps” section.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Oxfam America Unwrapped and received a credit for a gift on the Oxfam site.
