What is Unwrapped?

Oxfam Unwrapped is an on-line alternative giving program that offers a selection of life-changing gifts. No matter the occasion - whether a birthday, an anniversary, a retirement or a wedding - we have gifts that allow you to give something special to someone who has everything . while at the same time giving something meaningful to someone who needs it.

A gift purchased from Oxfam Canada Unwrapped will be used to help women and men - even entire communities - gain greater self-sufficiency. Oxfam Canada works in more than 20 countries around the world and the gifts we offer through Unwrapped represent actual items used in our programs.

The principle behind Oxfam Unwrapped is that your gift dollars work in two ways:

  • By supporting the fight against poverty, your gift helps women and men in developing countries reach greater levels of self-sufficiency and control over their lives.
  • The gifts are fun and they make you and the gift.s recipient feel good too!
