What's new?

In order to make the most of your charity gift donations, we’re giving you the choice to go digital with our gift cards. This year, you’ll be able to send a printed card or e-card to your loved ones when buying from our range of alternative charity gifts.

Choosing an e-card is a small change that has a big impact. By switching to online charity gifts and cards, we’re able to offer a more eco-friendly gift option, and it means your generous donations can reach more children and families living in the world’s toughest places.
