Give a Gift That Keeps on Giving with Plan International Canada

This holiday season, why not give a gift that keeps on giving? Plan International Canada is a not for profit charity focused on helping improve the quality of life for children, families, and communities in developing countries. Founded in 1937, it is one of the oldest international development organizations working to end global poverty. Each Gift of Hope is a project that goes on to help change the lives for children and families in developing countries. Perfect for those who have everything, or loved ones who want to spread positive change throughout the world, each Gift of Hope helps give people in need tangible goods and support to vital programs, such as helping feed families with a goat, or a bed net to prevent the spread of malaria.

Looking for some inspiration? We've highlighted some of the various affordable gifts you can give below ranging from just $10 to $75! 

Every year, nearly 450,000 children die from malaria. This year, why not give the gift of protection with a bed net. This is a simple solution to a fatal killer and each insecticide-treated net protects its occupants for up to three years. This gift is available for only $10.

Help a child thrive by equipping them with everything they need for school! This gift provides them with essentials such as textbooks and pencils, but also funds school meals and teacher training. This gift is available for only $17.

Give the gift of a birth certificate. Every year, 51 million babies are not registered at birth. Give the gift of identity, and open doors of opportunity for one of these children with the gift of a birth certificate. This gift offers protection, particularly for girls, from child trafficking, child marriage, or forced labour. This gift is available for only $25.

There is no creature as important or mighty as the bee. Responsible for pollinating nearly a third of the human food supply, this Christmas, why not gift of buzzing bees to help a small family business or local crops? Each gift comes with a hive, honey bees, and training for all essentials to help keep the colony growing and crops florishing! This gift is available for only $35.

Talk about a unique gift to give! Help prevent empty stomachs with the gift of a goat! Growing children can benefit from goat milk and cheese, and the sale of its offspring can mean valuable income to pay for more essentials, such as an education. This gift is available for only $75.

Each Gift of Hope can be purchased online or by calling 1-800-387-1418.
