This holiday season, show you “give a flock” with Oxfam Unwrapped

This holiday season, show you “give a flock” with Oxfam Unwrapped

December 8, 2010

This year, Oxfam Canada makes shopping Unwrapped even easier – gift cards are now available at Shopper’s Drug Mart locations across Canada, excluding Ontario and Quebec.

The kids on your list are sure to appreciate a couple of goat kids. And the best part is, your goat’s first female kid will go to another family. It’s a gift that truly keeps on giving – no kidding!

Since its inception in 2006, Oxfam Unwrapped has raised $2.5 million for Oxfam Canada’s overseas programming, supporting projects in Ethiopia, Nicaragua and Guatemala.

Last year, Canadians purchased:
1,889 goats
2,131 chickens
684 gifts of “putting girls in school”
850 gifts of safe water
853 sheep
538 gifts that plant 50 trees each.

So head to unwrapped.oxfam.ca, pick up a Gift of Peace, sow the seeds of an organic garden or maybe ring up a couple chickens, a donkey and an emergency kit or two.
