Can you give the gift of lasting change? I love giving gifts during the holidays. It makes me happy to know that I’ve given someone something that’s important to them. As we get older, I’ve found that we want and need less than when we were younger. Coming up with an idea when someone asks you what you want for Christmas becomes more difficult.

Give the Gift of Lasting Change

My parents asked me a few days ago what Marty and I wanted for the holidays. I could only think of one small gift that we wanted, and I knew my parents wanted other ideas. At the same time, when I asked them what they wanted, I was met with the same response. “We don’t want anything.” But, we still want to give.

This year, give the gift of lasting change with CARE. CARE is a global humanitarian organization that fights poverty by empowering girls and women. After World War II, the original CARE Package helped deliver food that relieved suffering across a devastated Europe. Today’s CARE Package is different. It provides relief today and the foundation of a better tomorrow. But it’s built on the same truth as the very first CARE Package — that when you give of yourself, you can be the difference in people’s lives. You can deliver lasting change.

CARE allows you to give a gift that will make a difference to a woman or girl in a developing nation. You pick the gift you want to give: school uniforms for two girls that will allow them to attend school, 10 fruit tree seedlings, two loads of organic fertilizer, fifty bars of soap or a grain package (plus many more).  Then you choose the person you want to notify that you’re giving a gift in their name.  After that, CARE will use your donation for the need you specified.

There are pages of many donations you can make in CARE’s Catalog. It’s very easy to shop by price point, causes, people, donations or interests. Because this is done online, CARE is the perfect solution to last minute gift giving. Give a gift that people will truly appreciate this year by purchasing a gift from CARE’s Catalog.

Shop the charity gifts from CARE for your holiday shopping.

  1. Helping others who are in need is always an excellent gift. We have so much in this country, and it is easy to forget those who have so much less.

  2. This sounds like a great organization! I know so many people who would be interested in learning more about CARE, I'm passing this along!

  3. I love this giving theme early in December, to remind us it's not all about accumulating material things ourselves. I love the handmade jewelry items I have purchased through these programs.

  4. I love this idea! What a great way to get to give and benefit those in need.  We are always stumped on what to tell family for gifts as well.

  5. Anything that supports schools or learning in undeveloped countries is something I could get behind. Who know what one of them will accomplish with just a little help!
