10 powerful ways to give back at Christmas

10 powerful ways to give back at Christmas

Share the spirit of generosity by giving back during Christmas

Giving back at Christmas is an important part of the festive season for many of us. But at this busy time of year it can be difficult to find the time, or the money, to give back in a meaningful way. Here at World Vision, we know that Christmas donations for needy families can truly make a life-changing difference. And this holiday season, you have the power to make that change happen.

When you donate to charity for Christmas you can help provide opportunities for vulnerable families to thrive. That could be through supporting their education and training, helping provide access to clean water, nutritious food and adequate healthcare, or improving opportunities for employment. Charity giving at Christmas is also a fantastic opportunity to teach your family about the true spirit of Christmas and the importance of giving instead of receiving.

This Christmas, we want to make helping charities at Christmas easy and affordable, so we’ve put together a list of ways you can give back – all for just $50!
