I was wrong with my guess there. Oxfam have a private partner who wishes to remain anonymous who is matching the other half of the gifts. I had a response from Oxfam on Facebook about this as I was interested to know.

We ‘bought’ father in law some goats through this scheme a few years ago, he loved the idea and now regularly ‘buys’ various things as gifts for ‘those who have everything and don’t need more soap! As he puts it.. excellent idea with the matching of donations

Ordered one as a gift, thanks

It sounds ridiculous to say it but if it is £8 to 'Feed a Family' but I pay only £4 then do they get half as much food? I mean it is a donation to a charity so are we not all just donating less when it is 50% off?

Nevermind, Oxfam already answers this question. Here it is:

How does it work?

There’s 50% off Goats and more in our half price gift sale. But don't worry, you won’t be giving half a goat. The money donated towards half price Oxfam unwrapped gifts will be used, whenever possible, to secure donations from a partner of Oxfam thanks to something called co-funding. This means that when you buy a half price gift a partner of Oxfam will donate the other half (or possibly even more).

Some of our partners agree to donate towards our work on the condition that we’re able to co-fund a project. For example they might say “we’ll pay for 50% of the project, but Oxfam needs to pay for the other 50%”. This means that if we can't raise our share of the funding we lose the other 50% from the donors. And that's why your donations are so vital. The money we raise in the half price sale will go towards these co-funded projects, whenever possible, and help us to raise even more donations to support our life-changing work.

Who is the donor?

A range of donors offer co-funding. They include the UK governments Department for International Development, the European Union, as well as private trusts and charitable foundations, to name just a few.

Can you give me an example?

Money raised in last year’s gift sale helped to support one of our projects in Niger, helping to make sure that children can access the education they deserve. For every £1 contributed to the project by Oxfam (thanks to the donations given in the half price sale), our partner SIDA contributed another £9

Someone should see their internal travel spend for meetings -- esp overseas - what a waste of money - what is wrong with Video Conferencing - complete waste of charity money!!!

Probably a good idea for Oxfam-unwrapped to choose a free goat as it encourages people to choose the £26 goat option, everyone likes something physical to show for their gift and who doesn't like chocolate? Heat given

It's crazy that so many people are donating chocolate goats that they have enough to give out for free!

Took a load of new and nearly new stuff into my local Oxfam shop a few months ago and they said they didn't want it as they were an Oxfam bookshop, not an ordinary Oxfam shop. They said take it to their nearest non-bookshop about three miles away.

So I took it to the Salvation Army shop a few doors down.

Hersheymad

I agree too



I completely agree. I used to work in a charity shop. I reckon they have a lot of meetings sat round a table where everyone agrees with everyone else. I remember some manager coming telling us ' this is a M&S top, stop pricing everything at £1.99 and 99p( we liked to keep things uncomplicated) This top will have cost £15+ , so it's reasonable to price at £3.99... I pointed out that, as per M&S guidelines, an item is only worth its latest and last selling price ( when you take something back without a receipt), even when BRAND NEW. Therefore the highest price that item would've been was £5 brand new, at the tail end of its actual current season! That is disregarding 50p /£1 reductions. So HOW can it be worn loads, fade a bit, and we worth only £1 less as a second hand item, 2 or 3 years later?? They maintained that it was fine, people would pay it. In fairness, people actually do, so I was proved wrong there!

Meanie!

Agree with the comment above, just had a quick scan and some of the BNWT M&S clothing seems to be priced at what you would pay in-store before being discounted (Was £29.99 Now £8.99)

I noticed while looking in one of their CD/DVD stores a few years ago that the prices were above retail.
I though the idea with charity shops was both for buyers to get a good deal and support a good cause.
Seems that good deal has vanished and the good cause is the Chief Execs remuneration package.
