How to Give Good at Christmas - my Personal Recommendation

By Yvette Vignando - 15th November 2012

This is Cigia, she is 6 years old, and lives in Timor-Leste.

It's my absolute pleasure to recommend you consider a UNICEF gift this Christmas. A gift that helps a vulnerable child is a beautiful way to celebrate families getting together during the Chirstmas holiday season. And I love the name for this initiative: Give Good gifts.

Sometimes it's tricky to choose the right gift for people we know. And by the way, don't they already have enough stuff?? And what about when long-lost cousins have accepted a Christmas invite, or your kid’s teacher needs an urgent Kris Kringle? I have sometimes used charity gifts for corporate Christmas presents also.

“Give Good” this Christmas with a gift that says you care – in more ways than one.

UNICEF gifts are delivered to the children who need it most. The gifts include polio vaccines, nutritional health supplements, educational tools, baby weigh scales, water pumps, bicycles for UNICEF field and community workers, emergency shelter and vital community infrastructure.

When you buy a Give Good gift, a gift card is sent to your intended recipient, outlining what you have sent and how it’s destined to help children in need. After all, what could be more impressive and worthy than giving the gift of good health, education or fulfilling the immediate needs of children in crisis situations?

Below is a selection of Good Gifts from UNICEF to get you started this Christmas.

285
Polio vaccinations for 200 children, $34
Enough Stuff? Give Good. Help children grow up healthy and strong. This Christmas give a UNICEF Inspired Gift that will vaccinate 200 children against polio – a deadly disease on the verge of eradication.

 

 

287
Children’s educational story books, $11
Enough Stuff? Give Good. This Christmas give a UNICEF Inspired Gift that will delight and surprise its real recipient – a child, who, with your help, will be given story books as part of a basic education and step up out of poverty.

Baby weight scale, $35
Enough Stuff? Give Good. Give a UNICEF Inspired Gift to help identify underweight babies so our field workers can provide the nutritional advice and supplement children need to grow healthy and strong.

 

 

291
Therapeutic food supplement, $63
Enough Stuff? Give Good. While enjoying your festive spread, give yourself a pat on the back for making sure Saamatou, 7 months, has the therapeutic food supplement she needs to go from being malnourished to strong and healthy.  Your UNICEF gift buys 150 sachets of therapeutic food supplements.

 

293
School-in-a-Box, $220
Enough Stuff? Give Good. Deliver education to an entire classroom, the School-in-a-Box is a portable education kits of resources to be used by children in times of crisis and conflict. Your UNICEF Inspired Gift can help children escaping violence in Syria keep at their studies.

 

295
Water Pump $466
Enough Stuff? Give Good. Deliver a water pump and help prevent disease to save children’s lives. Clean water can improve a community’s ability to keep disease at bay. A water source in a community can aid agriculture and the growing of nutritious crops. Your UNICEF Inspired Gift can bring water close to home and reduce the hours children cart water to their families.

Give Good Life Pack, $108
Help UNICEF give 10 children the best possible start in life by providing them with food, protecting them from disease, equipping them with pencils and exercise books for school and providing access to clean drinking water.  They’ll also be able to enjoy themselves as the pack contains a football. Give Good and deliver this on behalf of a family in your circle that would appreciate saying it made a difference this Christmas.

Give Good Life Pack contains: a football, 210 nutritional supplement sachets, 10 pencil packs, 10 exercise books, 100 water purification tablets and 10 measles vaccines.
