There are only seven Mondays to go until Christmas – can you believe it! It only feels like I was writing last years Christmas gift guides not that long ago…

We have stumbled across CAREGifts again!  So This year we are urging Aussies to give goodwill gifts – not fill rubbish tips in the lead up to Christmas.

An Average Australian spends around $500-$650 on festive gifts but its been estimated $630 million worth of them are turfed in the trash, gather dust, or auctioned online.

Why waste your money on people who already have what they really need!?

Well we have a life-changing gift for that person who has everything this Christmas!

CAREgifts is an online registry of life-changing presents that make an enormous difference to families living in poverty around the world.

CARE Australia Chief Executive Sally Moyle said, “Last year, compassionate Australians spent more than $600,00 on CAREGifts. This is enough to send 8,300 girls in developing countries to school for a year or provide 10,400 families with clean drinking water.”


A range of CAREGifts available different price points makes them an ideal option for any budget.

Just $15 can go a long way and buy a family a chicken, giving them eggs to eat or sell as an income, while $655 can provide a pond for a community so families have enough water to grow crops and vegetables.

CAREGifts solve the dilemma of what to give the person who has everything, so why not offer them a chance to save or enrich the lives of children to get immunised ($25) or covering the cost of sending a girl to school.

Christmas is about giving and helping others around us through selfless acts of kindness. This is the perfect time to give back to others.
