This charity gift card provides training in effective, eco-friendly composting - to help people grow more food to eat and sell.

Living in poverty, families can struggle to put food on the table and support their loved ones. But the chance to earn a decent income can change everything – and help people to beat poverty for good.

It's why Oxfam assists with setting up farming co-operatives and helping farmers with brilliant, poverty-busting ideas to share them with others. It all starts with gifts like this one.

This gift supports our Making a Living (ML) projects.


Many more different gifts included too

This opens up a much larger selection of cards so you might find something better to suit your chosen recipient.

Obviously the voter have taken things literally and judged the pile of poo a pile of poo hence the cold votes.

Oxfam did some bad things as seen in there sexual exploitation scandal so they are not so popular right now!

Remember, The Oxfam scandal has taught us there is no reward for honest charities.

Say no to Oxfam! theguardian.com/vol…fam

That was individuals involved.

It was truly shocking what they did and how they abused their power and roles.

However I don’t think the whole charity should be judged for their actions.

Oxfam covered it up to keep their image and let the abuse go on. Do you read the news?
Doesn't really work on any level for me. Surely if the gift cards are discounted by 50% the charity will only receive half the money they would have done otherwise.

I’m obviously in a minority here and the cold votes reflect that.

I do believe what happened was shocking including the cover up I cancelled my DD when the news hit.

But now on reflection not everyone at Oxfam knew what wasn’t going on and I don’t feel like the other projects and good work should suffer.

Yep i’ve definitely misjudge this and got it so so wrong on many levels.

Was just suppose to be a bit of light hearted fun with money been raised charity.

Possibly so yes, but presumably they have a huge infrastructure already in place which would difficult rebuild and a rebrand wouldn’t necessarily solve the issue.

I would have hoped lessons would have been learnt from and procedures put in place to ensure it would never happen again.

Again individuals covered it up not Oxfam, people really are easily led by the media

But who exactly do you think runs Oxfam? It's a bunch of individuals working together with (supposedly!) the same objectives.

In the past, people volunteered their time and undertook Charity work for free (the "Charity" bit of the name being a big clue). But not any more.

Nowadays, most "Charities" are basically nothing more than enormous commercial business operations providing funding to a cause. You now have professional Charity Directors who move from one Charity to another, trousering large salaries in the process.

It's been clearly demonstrated many people at the top of such "Charitable" organisations are guilty of some form of abuse (remember Brendan Cox's abuse at Save the Children?)

Charitable status should give not give abusers immunity from anything. Until Charities get their own acts in order, they don't deserve to be treated differently to any other commercial organisation.

If you really want to give to a good cause, you are probably better off finding a smaller local charity which is more open and honest about its endeavours.

This is the main point to take away. If one claims goods or services provided abroad have a certain value then discounting them like this undermines the argument. Far better to say DFID provide the shortfall. They do run donation matching schemes and I think what you are buying is half the gift for twice the feelgood factor.
The expert who wrote the Guardian article quoted above - theguardian.com/vol…fam -
stated:

Oxfam is widely recognised as having the best policies on sexual violence in the sector. But it now faces losing funding from DFID and the EU. The danger of this donor reaction to the Oxfam scandal is that other NGOs with less robust procedures will shy away from being open about abuse. Managers will judge the consequences of transparency too grave.

So not a good idea to Oxfam bash then.


I like this scheme a whole lot better though

This is EXACTLY the problem.

Oxfam should be eliminating sexual violence and exploitation, NOT allowing it to be carried out by its own staff (and then subsequently trying to cover things up to "protect the image of the brand")

I wonder if you'd take the same position if the headteacher and senior personnel at your local school were found to be abusing their pupils? Probably not, and this isn't any different.

If you have a way of eliminating crime you get my vote in the next election. You did, however, fail to recognise my support for an umbrella brand for various charities. Do you plan to play the outraged citizen all your life or are you also doing something constructive?
What infrastructure are they are expanding besides the prostitution/poverty industry? Staff volunteer and people fundraise for the directors to act like pigs, (Oxfam were created to fight this criticism of capitalism).

We tell other countries that people are protected by law, yet the system fails the most vulnerable. The country is run by people with the mentality that we mustn't punish, so these abusers walk into the sunset with a payout. How is it you think they will be less transparent, when they were never honest about it to start with??
