Charity may begin at home, but it must end elsewhere
Oxfam Unwrapped (Oxfam Australia - formerly Community Aid Abroad)
How it works
Oxfam Australia works in 25 countries around the world, and this catalogue only contains real items that we use in our work. When you buy a gift from Oxfam Unwrapped your donation will be used to fund projects that involve the very item you buy. This makes sure that your donation has the biggest possible impact on the lives of people living in poverty.
Your friends will receive a card detailing the present you bought them and the real item goes to those who need it most.
And because you're helping Oxfam Australia fight poverty, your purchases are also tax deductible. You will receive a tax receipt either via email or by post.
