You can make a difference this Christmas to some of the poorest people in the world by giving an 'alternative' Christmas gift. Instead of buying your family and friends gifts they may not like, need or want, you can buy something in their name that will help people who are living in poverty. With every gift, you receive a personalised Christmas Gift card describing the gift chosen, to send to you friends or family. One example is Must Have Gifts, where £8 buys a mosquito net, £17 an energy saving stove and £40 the gift of a goat. For the full details of these, click here.
