How It Works

  1. Choose meaningful gifts to honor loved ones.

    Ditch the forgettable sweaters and ties! Instead, give gifts that change lives for the world’s poorest people, bringing smiles to the faces of your friends and family in whose names they’re given.
  2. Receive free cards to give to your friends and family.

    With each gift, your friend or loved one will receive a card that describes what you’ve given in their honor.
  3. Provide gifts that do good.

    We put your gift to work, and offer life-changing help for a poor family. They’ll have a chance for a better future.
  4. Discover how your gift has made a difference in someone's life.

    In a few months, you’ll receive a story about a changed life—sharing how your thoughtfulness has made a real difference in the world.

Your Gifts at Work

Your gifts provide sustainable solutions to poverty and long-term support in unreached areas. In many of the countries where we work, people who live there face extreme poverty and significant challenges, including political or religious restrictions. Your gifts help transform the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable in those places.
