Introducing a Blue & Green friend: Present Aid



Each day we’re introducing one, two or three of our new affiliate friends. If you click through the link in this article, the link is tracked and may generate a small payment to us. Sometimes the payment is per click, per user, per application, per accepted application or any combination of the above. That payment funds us so we can grow and encourage even more readers to live, spend and invest sustainably. Today it’s the turn of Present Aid.

What is Present Aid?

Present Aid has over 60 fun and unusual gift ideas that will be loved by everybody and also help poor communities around the world.

Each sale generated helps to fund Christian Aid’s projects around the world. Christian Aid is an international development charity working in over 50 countries to help people in the fight against poverty.

Whether it is something sporty for a super fit granddad, a new bike for the green member of the family or an unusual pet for the kids, Present Aid is sure to have the perfect gift. And, not only will it be their loved one who benefits, a Present Aid gift will also help to make a lasting difference to someone else’s life.

How does it work?

For each present that is ordered they send a gift card that is then given to a friend or family member. Each card describes how Christian Aid helps people in the developing world improve their own lives, and has a space to include a personalised message.

Where does the money go?
The gifts on sale are virtual. This means that whatever present bought, the money will go directly to a project fund relevant to the gift. For instance, if you buy a goat, ducks or even composting worms, that money goes directly to their agricultural and livestock fund. They have five of these project funds;

– Agriculture and livestock

– Emergency and disaster preparedness

– Healthcare including HIV/Aids

– Training and education

– Water and environment
