Everything and a big heart!
What do you give a person who has everything? We all have at least one of these people in our lives, and it can be quite frustrating to find the right present.
Maybe it’s time to think outside the box, or better said; outside the shop. Caritas Austria offers you the opportunity to give a thoughtful and truly meaningful Christmas presents that your friends or relatives will cherish forever as it will have a massive impact on the life of somebody who, unlike them, needs everything.
Your present can be seeds and training for a future without hunger or to finance a person's education as a teacher. This also includes meals and accommodation for one year.
There are so many presents options to choose from. You can give a donkey to reduce the workload of women in Ethiopia, an ox to help make the land arable for agriculture, warm soup in Ukraine, you can help poor people in Austria to keep their flats warm, and so on.
With the donation you make in the name of your loved ones, they will receive a letter with information about the project you chose, which you can personalise, Christmas cards designed by children, or if you prefer, there are also T-shirts or cute, cuddly stuffed-animal toys you can buy.
With a pig or a goat, you give a new livelihood to a poverty-stricken family.
The assistance Caritas gives to people in need is planned for the long term, so the concrete help includes coaching and training that will allow them to stand on their own two feet in the future. In Austria alone, Caritas runs 41 sleeping and living facilities for the homeless, 12 mother-child houses, 25 facilities for consultation and medical care, 36 social counselling centres and 103 employment projects.
On top of everything, you buy your gift from the comfort of your house and Caritas will deliver it for you, now how easy is that? Go check Caritas website to choose your wonderful gift for that person who has everything.
