Help Children And Change The World With Charity Gifts For Any Occasion
Do Good. Feel Good. Gifts for Good.
If you’re looking to give a meaningful and lasting gift that also gives back, you’ve come to the right place. ChildFund’s Gifts for Good catalogue is packed with a variety of life-changing items that support the wellbeing of children, families and communities living in poverty around the world.
With our range of charity gifts, you are giving meaningful presents for your family members, friends, loved ones, and work colleagues while also making a difference in the world. Whether it’s at Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, Hanukkah, Eid or Diwali, you’ll bring greater meaning to the gesture of giving with Gifts for Good. A gift of a dozen chickens could make a great Easter present, or donate life-saving birthing kits for mums for Mother’s Day or for baby showers.
Long-time ChildFund Australia supporter Carol Vleeskens buys Gifts for Good several times a year as Christmas and birthday presents. “I buy a whole heap and keep the Gifts for Good cards in my cupboards because they don’t go off and get eaten like my chocolates!”
Not sure where to start? Here’s everything you need to know about Gifts for Good.
What are Gifts for Good?
A range of charity, life-changing gifts that help support children and families living in poverty around the world. The items listed represent some of the many tools and resources that form part of our child-focused development programs.
Where do the gifts go?
We pool all gift donations to maximise the impact you make, allocating your contribution when and where it is needed most. For example, we would never give a community more chickens than they could possibly need. Once your donation is processed, 100% of the funds are sent to our country offices overseas to purchase and deliver the gifts you have chosen.
While gifts relating to education, health care and livelihoods are regularly included in the catalogue, we added some great new items in 2023:

This life-changing gift will give children with disabilities greater freedom, independence and resilience for a brighter future.
One wheelchair for a child – $200
Help children with disabilities get to school, be with their friends and receive an education.
One warm jacket – $30
Protect children against the cold as temperatures start to dip.
Fishing equipment – $150

How can I choose a Gift for Good?
It’s easy! All you need to do is choose your charity gift from our Gifts for Good catalogue and you’ll receive beautiful postal or printable e-cards that you can personalise and give to the person you’re buying for. This card also explains the life-changing gift you’ve given on their behalf.
Your Gift for Good will go to where it’s needed most, supporting children, families or communities living in poverty or facing conflict or disaster.
Add a personal touch to your gift
With more than 40 impactful Gifts for Good items available, you can find a unique gift to suit the interests of your friends, family, colleagues or loved ones. For Carol, choosing the perfect Christmas gift means finding one that’s meaningful for both the donor and the recipient, and benefits the wider community.
“I will try and match the gift to the person,” she says. “For example, I have a friend who works in public health so I gave her the gift that provides children with mosquito nets. And if I know someone who is passionate about gardening, I might give them one about seeds or trees.”
Gifts for Good is where Carol goes to buy all her presents. “Gifts for Good is fantastic because I don’t have to think!” she says. “I don’t have to go to the shops and spend time thinking about what someone has or doesn’t have, or if something is in their colour scheme. I don’t have to don’t do any of that.”
A gift of a lifetime
No matter what the occasion, you can give a charity gift with our Gifts for Good. After all, the real magic of any celebration is spreading cheer and kindness and giving to those in need.
