Season of Giving - Gift and Befriend

Hello Everyone!

Today's post is a little different but very fitting for this time of year.

As you all will know, Christmas is fast approaching and all around us we are reminded of all the traditional merriment, plenty food, warmth, family and the giving (and receiving) of gifts.

For me, the giving of gifts is what makes my Christmas perfect, that moment of satisfaction when you know that you have given someone a wonderful present you know they will love.
Alongside this gifting is the charitable donations many of us make around this time of year, after-all, it would seem a little immoral not to think of those less fortunate than ourselves during a season of such happiness and giving, that being said, with the website ''Gift and Befriend' you can combine helping those less fortunate than yourself with a gift you know they will love as they have chosen it themselves!

Gift and Befriend is a website set up to provide less fortunate people all around the world with their perfect gifts using an amazon wish list, in a nutshell, you choose a recipient from one of the many profiles on the site and after looking at their pictures and videos, purchase one (or more) of the items from their amazon wish lists, these items often contain items like school books, clothes, household items etc. Once purchased, Amazon will deliver the parcel to the person direct (or to an address they have chosen) so you don't have to worry about postage etc.
Membership is free and there are no admin costs so every penny you spend goes to your chosen recipient.

Esha  is one of the potential recipients on the website

Esha is 19 years old and has a small son, Esha was sponsored through education but unfortunately the sponsor died before her education was complete leaving her with no other option but return to poverty, she struggles to feed and dress herself and her son.
Esha is just one of many on this website, all with their own stories to tell.

I hope you found this post interesting and had a look at the page, make sure you tell your friends and spread the word about this webpage, especially during this festive season!

Toodles Everyone xx
