Goats stay on top, who's going to finish at No.1?

Goats stay on top, but who's going to finish at No.1?
For Immediate Release

It has been an eventful week for Oxfam's funusual gifts, things are definitely heating up in the race to be number one.

Goats are still out in front, but Chickens have eaten into their lead and are mounting a big challenge for the title.

The big mover this week has been the Condoms, which at ten dollars a packet, are rising to the challenge.

"It has been a huge week for our Unwrapped gifts" said Oxfam's Direct Marketing Manger, Scott Young.

"People absolutely love the gifts, and lots of businesses are coming onboard too. Rather than spending money on the usual junk for "Secret Santa" gifts, staff are choosing to make a difference and buy an Unwrapped gift instead. They offer a novel gift and you can give it with a clear conscience. I think that is why the Condoms have had such a good week" 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.
