Tis the season to be jolly and buy gifts for friends and family. It is also the season where friends and family ask me what I would like for Christmas, to which I usually respond with ‘nothing’. I have been blessed with so many amazing experiences over the years that just simply making people happy makes me happy.
Sometimes I don’t think I do enough for others. I have amazingly altruistic friends who donate to charities, support new businesses in third world countries through various organisations and ones who even go to Africa to volunteer to help the needy and build new communities. But as those friends of mine say, it’s not about going all out and trying to out-do each other in acts of good-will, everyone just needs to do something to make a difference.
This year UNICEF, the worldwide charity aiding children in need, are asking Australian’s to give stocking fillers the flick and instead to #GIVEGOOD by giving a gift that says you care for your loved ones and others through UNICEF. UNICEF inspired gifts are delivered to the children who need it most, from 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.
After all does your sister need that new phone, when her old one is barely a year old? Maybe she would be happy to know that her present is helping A child in a developing community go to school and learn instead? Does your workplace need another lazy box of chocolates for Kris Kringle? Probably not.
Every Christmas and New Year’s we wish for good health and happiness to our loved ones, but wouldn’t it be rather impressive to give the gift of good health, education or fulfilling the immediate needs of children in crisis situation?
Check out the UNICEF website for the full list of Christmas Charity Gifts you can give this year.
How can you #GIVEGOOD this year and win?
This is not a traditional competition, instead following in the message of #GIVEGOOD, we want to give four UNICEF Christmas Gifts on your behalf to children in need.
All you have to do is tell us what #GIVEGOOD present will you be giving this Christmas?

- 120 Sachets of Therapeutic Food – $64

- 500 Pencils – $16
