For the third installment of our 12 Days of Christmas we are looking for something that is very similar to the 3 French Hens, so why not try this ‘egg’-cellent charity gift out for size!
On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me … A brood of chickens from Present Aid for just £21!
A brood of chickens is a really useful gift to help people make a living in under developed countries. Not only are they a terrific source of food, but also the eggs they produce provide much needed stock for sale at local markets. This great Christmas Charity Gift also comes with –
A beautiful gift card illustrating how the gift will work in the real world.
With gifts for all budgets you can be sure that whatever you buy from Present Aid is a gift with real meaning and lasting benefits.
The great feeling knowing you care enough to help them help others!
Now, I’m not Father Christmas, and nor do I intend or pretend to be. I will admit though that it has been noted that I do have a rather rotund demeanour and a beard you could lose a badger in. I like to think of these points as a way of bringing festive cheer to people all year round, for what is a beard if it doesn’t bring happiness to your friends and loved ones?
Anyway, I digress. Now is the perfect time to be thinking of purchasing a few interesting presents for your friends and loved ones, and whether they have a beard or not, everyone deserves something a bit special at Christmas. We at Donation4Charity have a vast array of charity gift ideas that will allow you to bring something different to the table this year, as surely the thought of more socks cannot be filling anyone with the very elixir of Yuletide spirit ( though I don’t mind a pair of Pringle myself!)
A charity gift is an interesting way to show someone that not only do you care for them, but also that you care for those who are less fortunate across the world. The funds raised from your purchases help your chosen charities to provide relief to some of the world’s poorest people…
it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
We have hundreds of charity gift ideas available for your perusal, but I have personally chosen 10 of my favourite gifts to give this year (and not a stick-on beard in sight!)
WWF Adopt an Animal
One of the most popular charity gifts for young and old is the adopt an animal scheme from WWF. This costs as little as £3 a month and the recipient will receive a cuddly toy, certificate, greetings card and of course provide funds to help save your choice of animal’s species and habitat.
Cows ‘n’ Things from AGE UK
Why not purchase an online gift from Cows ‘n’ Things, the only charity focusing on the needs of older people in developing countries. Each virtual gift comes with a personalised e-card, or you could even have it delivered by post, just like they used to do in the olden days!
Choose from a great selection of virtual gifts this Christmas, and if you spend £5 or more before 2nd January 2011 you will receive a £5 off voucher for Pizza Express. You can’t say fairer than that, so why not grab a ‘pizza’ the action (I know, terrible!)

The recipient will receive a gift certificate, an exclusive calendar, plus regular updates on how their puppy is progressing during its training and subsequent initiation into a person’s life.
The festive season sees a wide range of colourful birds come out to play, and what better way to enjoy the British countryside than with an RSPB membership? This great gift entitles the holder free entry to over 100 RSPB nature reserves across the UK, plus a free joining gift, a quarterly magazine, plus loads of extra bits for children.

So there you go, those are my top ten choices of charity gifts this year available through the Donation4Charity website. Have I chosen these because I would like someone to buy them for me? Yes. Am I selfishly, sort of writing a letter to Santa in the hope he reads this via the wonderful worldwide web? Yes. Will I receive any of those gifts for Christmas? I hope so, I’ve made it pretty clear what I want!

Christian Aid UK are promoting a new campaign – ‘Poverty Over’, to make people aware that if we all pull together we can help end poverty in our lifetime. Throughout the annals of history, social changes can be galvanised during times of crises, as has been proven by how quickly governments shored up their economies in the financial crisis.
This video shows how Christian Aid are spreading the word and their work to the commuters of London that now is the time for ‘Poverty Over’.
Man has constantly overcome challenges and changed the way the world is today. A global movement for change must challenge the undemocratic structures alongside greater transparency in business and banking. If we can work together to abolish slavery and apartheid whilst putting a man on the moon, surely we can make ‘Poverty Over’?
Don’t forget everyone, Father’s Day is just round the corner. On Sunday 21st June, we will all be thanking that bloke slumped in his chair taking 40 winks for all he has taught us over the years…

So why not get a little extra for the big fella this year and choose one of Present Aid’s ethical gifts, along with a card letting him know how his present is helping to change the lives of people living in poverty around the world. The gift you choose will represent the kind of project that will benefit from your purchase, such as –
