Last-Minute Holiday Gifts That Give Back to Charity in 2023

2023 has been a challenging year for so many children and families in the United States and around the world. The new year offers hope that, thanks to supporters like you, we can continue to make change for children and families. 


Here Are 2 Ways That You Can Help Give Hope in the New Year:

1. Give gifts that donate to charity through our gift catalog

When you visit our gift catalog and choose to donate clean water, health supplies for children and families impacted by climate disasters, or any of the other items, you help give support to a child in need. Your charity Christmas gift helps create lasting change for children, their families and communities – ultimately, transforming the future we all share.

The gift catalog is a wonderful alternative to giving a Christmas gift or Hanukkah. You can also give a gift on behalf of someone special through the gift catalog as a charity donation in lieu of a Christmas gift.

2. Honor someone special by gifting donations for Christmas

Celebrate a special person this holiday by giving a gift that gives back to charity through Save the Children in his or her name. Show that special someone your appreciation while making a difference for children in the U.S. and around the world.

Make a donation in honor of someone special to give a Christmas gift that gives back.

What is a no-gift Christmas?

Some of the best gifts don’t need unwrapping! A no-gift Christmas is a way that you can celebrate giving back for the holidays without giving a physical gift. Save the Children offers many opportunities to give back this holiday with a charity donation in lieu of Christmas gifts.

There are so many ways to help others and give gifts that give back to communities, in the U.S. and globally, this holiday season. If you’re looking for a way to have a no-gift Christmas, let us help generous supporters like you give the gift of hope for the holidays.
