Oxfam Unwrapped catalogue of clever Christmas gift

Oxfam Unwrapped catalogue of clever Christmas gifts: The competition is hotting up!

Goats are in the lead, followed closely by Chickens.

Trees, Training a Farmer and Meals for 50 Kids are all tracking well, with Toilet making a good run of things from the rear.

The results so far have really surprised Scott Young, Oxfam's Direct Marketing Manager: "I was betting that the Cooking Stove was going to take an early lead, but so far it's at the back of the pack. I'm always one to root for the underdog. In my heart, I'd like to see Donkeys pull ahead of Goats."

"Regardless of whether people are more interested in Training a Farmer or Water Buckets, I do hope that they continue to click through to www.oxfamunwrapped.org.nz before they buy more meaningless Christmas presents for their friends this year," added Scott.

Oxfam Unwrapped is a way to give something special to your friends and family while giving something extra special to people who haven't got much at all. When you buy a gift from Oxfam Unwrapped your donation will be used to fund Oxfam's projects throughout the Pacific, Asia, and Africa, ensuring that it has the biggest possible impact on the lives of people living in poverty. Your friends will receive a card detailing the present you bought them, and they'll be damn thankful they won't have to find more space in the sock drawer.
