Be a Good Kid: Honor a mom with a gift that gives back from

By Oxfam

International relief and development organization Oxfam America is encouraging everyone to celebrate moms this month by giving Mother’s Day gifts that make a difference for women and children around the world.  Show her that she raised a good kid with a thoughtful, life-changing gift from Oxfam America Unwrapped, such as kid goats ($45), a hardy investment for a family in need.

Oxfam’s online catalog at offers a range of products that can have a positive impact in the lives of mothers and their families.  There are over 70 products to choose from for between $12 and $5,000 that will improve the lives of mothers and their children. You can help train a midwife ($150) working in rural communities to enable mothers to give their children the best possible start in life; buy a dozen chicks ($45) to produce food and income for a family; or help restore a preschool ($35) to working order and provide a safe learning environment for children.

“Mother’s Day is an opportunity to thank moms in our lives for dedication to their children,” said Stephanie Kurzina, vice president for development and communications at Oxfam America.  “What better way to say ‘thank-you’ than with a unique and meaningful gift that will help other families around the world overcome poverty and injustice.”

Oxfam America’s Unwrapped catalog offers items that symbolically represent the organization’s lifesaving work, and each purchase is a contribution toward Oxfam’s many programs that help people living in poverty throughout the world.  All gift contributions are general donations to support Oxfam America’s mission to right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice in over 90 countries around the world. Gifts are fully tax-deductible.  For more information, visit
