Save the Children offers range of livestock, medical and educational gifts to help millions of children in-need

When Canadians can give gifts for a good cause, even the pickiest people on their shopping list will light up with joy. Save the Children’s 2018 Gifts of Joy catalogue is out with so many options to chose from. Perhaps a goat that could help lift a family out of poverty; or ducks that can provide food and money-making fertilizer; maybe a donkey to help families commute and get hard labour done. There’s no shortage of ways Canadians can gift their loved ones this holiday season, and gift the world’s most marginalized children at the same time.

Purchasing an item from the Gifts of Joy catalogue means giving the hardest-to-reach children, the gift of an education, fresh water and food, livestock and produce that can help entire families and communities by enriching their livelihoods.

“Everyone loves an unforgettable gift, but one that transforms a child’s life is truly exceptional,” says Bill Chambers, President and CEO of Save the Children Canada. “I’ve personally seen how these gifts save lives and improve the futures of children affected by poverty and crisis.”

When Canadians make a gift in someone’s name, the recipient will receive a personalized message on an e-card, so they have the pleasure of knowing their gift is making a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children and families.

“Today’s needs are great. We know the demands on everyone’s time and resources are high. That’s why we want to inspire a culture of charitable giving and looking after our global community. The Gifts of Joy program is a great reminder of this, whether you are the giver or the recipient,” said Chambers.

Save the Children staff are available for interviews on the Gifts of Joy catalogue and unique gift ideas for Canadians.
