Christmas Cards that Give Back

Most of us spend time and energy every year looking for the right Christmas gifts for our loved ones. Why not give a gift of charity...back to charity? 

Global Gifts are Caritas Australia’s gift cards for Christmas, helping vulnerable communities receive much-needed joy and happiness this festive season. 

Each Global Gift represents a donation made to Caritas Australia on your behalf. When you buy a Global Gift, you give not only a present to your loved one, but also someone in need worldwide.  

In 2022, Caritas Australia reached thousands worldwide, including Australia, through long-term development and emergency programs. 

With your support, we can continue to help vulnerable communities forge a path out of poverty.
