World Gifts are great for Christmas but they also make a perfect ethical gift for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day or an unusual birthday present. CAFOD gifts are ideal for confirmation, weddings and baptisms. Celebrate with your loved ones whilst making a difference to people living in poverty.
Once you’ve decided on the perfect present for your loved one, you will receive a beautifully illustrated card of your chosen gift which explains how their gift can help people fighting poverty in developing countries. You can even go green and email your chosen gift straight to the recipient or download the gift card to print at home.

Why not join together with others in your parish or community and fundraise for World Gifts. From cake sales, coffee mornings, soup lunches to sponsored walks, quiz nights and car washing – there’s plenty of ways you can fundraise!
Confirmation candidates, parents and catechists from St Joseph & St Alban parish, Wallasey, held a sponsored walk as part of their Service to the Community. The group fundraised together and bought World Gifts with their donations.
A parishioner from Portsmouth wanted to help communities overseas by providing a Community toilet. He asked local parishes to help crowdfund and put notices up on church boards about his fundraising. In just over three weeks, he’d raised three times his target!
