Oxfam Ireland have launched a brand-new online Christmas shop, calling on people to give gifts that support both people and planet.
With Oxfam shops closed for now, the charity is calling on the public to shop with purpose this year by visiting their new online pop-up shop. Each gift supports small traders all over the world. and helps to raise vital funds for Oxfam’s global work.
The Sourced by Oxfam range contains an abundance of festive food, gifts and eco-products that are made with care.
Oxfam’s online shop also has a range of great options for children and young people including educational books such as An Anthology of Intriguing Animals (€15), the ABC of Kindness (€8) and Plastic Planet (€9), and fun Moomin Calendars (€11) to start making plans for 2021.
By buying Moomin at Oxfam you are supporting a special partnership that raises funds for projects that are empowering women and girls worldwide.
Michael McIlwaine, Oxfam Ireland’s Head of Retail, said: “This Christmas, we’re asking people to give something different by shopping more sustainably on our new online shop.
“Everything in our range of gifts is guaranteed to last longer than your festive bottle of wine or foodie hamper as all of them contribute to our mission to beat poverty for good by raising vital funds for our work across the world.
“From supporting development projects that transform lives in Rwanda, Tanzania and beyond, to saving lives through emergency responses in places like Yemen – where millions of people already on the brink of famine now face a deadly winter freeze – your gift will make a difference for people most in need and help to protect our shared planet.
“Last year alone, the generosity of people shopping at Oxfam, especially at Christmas time, raised enough money to fund life-changing projects that positively impacted the lives of 7.9 million people across 10 countries – including supporting women to develop businesses and earn an income, getting safe, clean water to people in desperate need, and helping communities prepare for extreme weather events.
“Your local Oxfam shop may be closed for now, but you can still support this vital work by picking up a few gifts from our online shop.”
