Thank you for your interest in buying an alternative gift this Christmas. These gifts are great ideas to buy for your family and friends and each gift that you choose will be given directly to the children in our care that most need your gift.
How it works
1) Choose a gift - choose a life-changing gift for a Stand by Me child from the three buttons on this page and place your order.
2) Receive your order - we will post you a gift card (for free) for each item you have chosen, to give to a friend. Where you can write a personal message.
3) You pass on the card to your friend - the card details the gift you have bought and how it will help to transform a child's life.
4) A child in our care receives the gift - your friend is happy to know that you have helped enhance a child's life.
The three gifts to choose from are:
A toy - for our children who have experienced a tough start in life, the gift of a toy encourages them to laugh and play as fun is an important aspect of childhood.
A school pack - this contains pens, pencils and other tools which will encourage our children’s love of learning. These gifts will help our schools continue to be beacons of hope, providing an education to the poorest children around the world.
A food parcel - many families in our communities around the world are living in extreme poverty and sometimes face the horror of not being able to feed their children. Circumstances outside families' control can be worsen this, such as the pandemic, food shortages or inflation. Giving the gift of a food parcel supports families during hard times and brings relief and joy.
