A Very Givit Christmas
Send a handmade gift to someone in need this Christmas.
Ever had the chance to attend a Handmade market in person? Then you’ve probably seen our fantastic charity partner Givit at the doors. They collect donations from those who have and use them to supply essential items to those in need.
In 2020, there are more people in need than ever before. The bushfire crisis and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have taken their toll on local communities. Many families and individuals have lost their homes, possessions, and jobs.
Supporting local communities is such an essential part of what we do here at Handmade. So this festive season, we’ve partnered with Givit and some of our Handmade designers and producers to make Christmas a little brighter for bushfire affected communities from Conjola to Cobargo. And we’re calling all big-hearted shoppers to get involved!
From today until December 7th, 2020, you can head over to our Givit Christmas Appeal Directory and purchase a gift on behalf of someone in need.
When you click on a trader to shop with, you will be directed to their website to choose a gift from just $20 to donate. Be sure to pay attention to the note listed under the image from each store. Some have provided a unique code for you to input at checkout to donate your gift. Can’t see a code? Stores without a code have set up a special page or area to shop from that will recognise your donation.
Your purchase will support a small Australian business in the lead up to the holiday season. Givit will collect your gift and send it to their charity partners to pass on to those in bushfire affected regions. We encourage all those who have the resources this year to give generously and bring some joy to our local communities.
