Oxfam Ambassador Angie Chiu and Council Member Bernard Chan recommend ‘Oxfam Unwrapped’ website for Christmas gifts
In celebration of Christmas, Angie Chiu, Oxfam Ambassador, and Bernard Chan, Council Member of Oxfam Hong Kong, are calling on the public to visit the Oxfam Unwrapped website to select a Christmas gift. The gifts they purchase will be sent on behalf of their loved ones to poor people, while a greeting card can be sent to loved ones to share the joy of giving.
Angie Chiu, Oxfam Ambassador and long time supporter of Oxfam Hong Kong, suggests buying 10 ducks (HKD480) for loved ones. This gift goes with a newly-designed B.Duck Christmas card, bringing blessings not only to friends and family but also to people living in poverty.
Bernard Chan, Council Member of Oxfam Hong Kong, recommends buying a pair of goats (HKD600) to help poor families improve their livelihoods. And with Chinese New Year fast approaching, this meaningful gift is perfect to welcome the Year of the Goat.
This year, Oxfam Unwrapped is offering 14 practical gifts that will benefit people living in poverty; prices range from HKD250 To HKD1,280. Some of the selected gifts include 10 ducks (HKD480), preschool education (HKD520), a pair of goats (HKD600), a piglet (HKD680), teach a teacher (HKD800) and doctor training (HKD1,000).
Money raised from the purchase of Oxfam Unwrapped gifts will be used on specific poverty alleviation projects that Oxfam runs. For example, money from the purchase of 10 ducks will be used to support local farmers to raise ducks. All purchases will go towards helping poor people work their way out of poverty and create a sustainable future.
