Why not make a difference this Christmas — to some of the poorest people in the world! Give an 'alternative' Christmas gift. Instead of buying your family and friends gifts they may not need, like 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 your friends or family.
