Hayley Still introduces a way to gift your support to Army projects around the world this Christmas.

The Salvation Army International Development UK helps communities around the world to overcome poverty and injustice. It works in partnership with the Army in more than 20 countries to support the delivery of community development and emergency response projects. For those looking for an alternative Christmas present this year, Just Gifts is a way to support this work.

Just Gifts is a selection of virtual gifts that represent the projects that The Salvation Army supports in different countries across the globe. There are 18 gifts to choose from at varying prices, so whether you are looking for a stocking filler for a loved one or a fundraiser for your corps or group, there is something to suit all budgets.

How it works

Just Gifts represent real projects that are taking place around the world. Each gift in the catalogue is an example of the work the Army does – and each one you buy is a donation towards them, with all money raised through Just Gifts helping to fund future projects.

When you purchase a present from Just Gifts, you won’t receive a real bag of seeds or stationery set. What you will receive is a virtual gift voucher, which you can display or send on. You can also choose to buy a physical Just Gifts greetings card for £1 to share with a loved one.

Two new gifts

This year two new gifts have been introduced, which reflect new projects that the Army has begun to support.

Hairdressing Course (£80)

In Rwanda, The Salvation Army is supporting survivors of human trafficking to rebuild their lives and increase their resilience to re-trafficking through safe and stable, skill-based employment in the beauty industry.

This gift could cover the cost of the training materials and equipment a person needs to complete a hairdressing course.

Food Vouchers (£15)

People fleeing the conflict in Ukraine have sought refuge in neighbouring countries and beyond. The Salvation Army is providing practical support through food vouchers, giving people the opportunity to purchase the items they need with choice and dignity.
