gifts for good
27 Nov 2012
The new ‘gifts for good’ range starts from just £5 and all have been used in country projects to help lift people out of poverty.
Are you struggling to buy for the one you love? Trying to choose something for a brother who's got everything or a sister who wants for nothing? Why not buy a gift for good and know that the money you donate goes towards making a real difference to some of the poorest people on the planet.
Concern Universal has re-launched the fantastic range of virtual gifts in time for Christmas. The new ‘gifts for good’ range starts from just £5 and all have been used in country projects to help lift people out of poverty.
There’s a range to choose from, whether it’s a ‘Lovely Loo’, a pair of ‘Great Goats’, or perhaps some ‘Super Snails.’ You are sure to find a gift for good for any occasion.
Offset your carbon with a Feelgood Footprint
Whether you’re worried about climate change or the world running out of oil, we all know we should be using less fuel and switching to greener energy. But we can’t suddenly stop using our cars, or all have solar panels at home. So in the meantime, you can ‘offset’ your emissions by paying for an equal amount of carbon to be saved through our activities such as tree planting, producing fuel-efficient cooking stoves, sustainable agriculture methods, and forest protection. These activities are all part of Concern Universal’s work helping communities to adapt to their changing environments.
Our offsets are backed by carbon saved through our projects in Bangladesh, Malawi, Nigeria and the Gambia. As these are our usual community projects, you can be assured that they will have genuine social and economic benefits, as well being good for the environment.
The full range of gifts for good and feelgood footprints are available online at www.concern-universal.org/giftsforgood , through the mail order catalogue, over the phone or in the shop on King Street, Hereford.
