Give the gift of charity this holiday season

If you’re looking for the perfect charity gift that gives back this holiday season, we can help.

There is no better time to make a charitable donation. In Canada and around the world, there are people in need of your help; children who will not unwrap a Christmas gift this year; families who will go hungry during Hanukkah.

No matter what you’re celebrating this winter, whether it’s a celebration of faith or family or something else in entirely, the Canadian Red Cross Holiday Gift Shop is filled with gifts for good. Our Survival Kits are built for every budget, with items ranging from essential groceries and food and water relief to critical medicines that can help at home and abroad.

You may not find these items on a typical holiday wishlist, but our store is like a charity gift guide designed for good. Because when you buy a Survival Kit, you aren’t making a charity donation in lieu of a gift – your donation is the gift: It’s the gift of a healthy meal, a warm night’s sleep or a trip to the doctor.

When it comes to charity donations, Giving Tuesday is perhaps the most generous day of the year. Created as a response to shopping holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s a day meant for helping others. And this year, we’re hoping to give more than 1,000 charity gifts on #GivingTuesday. But we can’t do it without you.
