Among the endless gift choices for the holidays, many of us are thinking about giving a charitable gift this year. According to a recent survey, six in 10 Canadians agree that charitable giving is a great way to get someone a memorable present. And the best way to make it unforgettable is to pick a gift that aligns with the recipient’s personality and values.
For the book lover, enjoying the warmth and comfort of a good book and cozy blanket is an enjoyable way to spend time this winter. You can give a gift in their name that supports providing warm blankets to refugees in need.
For the food lover, provide sustenance in someone’s time of need by giving a gift that supports family groceries or hot meals.
For parents, there’s nothing more important than the health and well-being of their children. Help parents in developing countries by giving a gift that supports maternal, newborn, and child health.
The Canadian Red Cross has a variety of gifts you can give this holiday season and you can even send a paper or electronic card with a personal message along with your gift. Find something for everyone on your list online at redcross.ca/yourgift.
