When you buy an Inspired Gift for friends or family, it is immediately dispatched to reach a child who needs it now. A beautiful card describing your life-changing gift is sent by email or post to the person you name as being your gift's donor. Alternatively, you can opt for a PDF card, sent to your email, so you can print it out and deliver it yourself.

Yes they are. UNICEF Inspired Gifts are far more than 'virtual' gifts or 'examples of what your money can do' - they are tangible, life-saving and life-changing gifts that are being distributed to children and communities around the world year-round. For example, UNICEF procures vaccines for 40 per cent of the world's children.
