When you order an Inspired Gift for your family or friends real items are shipped from our UNICEF warehouse in Copenhagen, Denmark, to children and families in need around the world.
Are Inspired Gifts real?
Collapse -
Expand +
Yes they are. UNICEF Inspired Gifts are tangible, life-saving and life-changing gifts that are being distributed to children and communities around the world year-round in response to real need. 

As a result, an item from the same category, in extreme circumstances, may be substituted by UNICEF in response to need i.e. if there is a disease outbreak the value from one vaccine category may need to be substituted for another vaccine i.e. Polio vs Measles.
When will my card be delivered?
Collapse -
Expand +
If you choose to order a hardcopy card, you should allow 10 working days for delivery. If you choose the e-card or PDF version, they will be delivered immediately. If you have any questions about the delivery of your order please call 1300 884 233 between the hours of 9am-5pm Mon-Fri.

While we process all orders as efficiently as possible, we are unable to have any control over the timing of postage delivery through Australia Post.
Will I get two cards if I purchase two of the same Inspired Gifts?

Yes, and you are able to nominate a different delivery address for each card, if you wish.
Is there a guarantee that the gift I select is the one that will be delivered to the field?
Collapse -

Inspired Gifts respond to the real and changing needs of children around the world, so there may occasionally be a case where the item you selected may be substituted for another because there is a greater need for it. Wherever possible, we will keep that substitution within the same category – for example, a gift of measles vaccines may be substituted for polio vaccines. We hope that through your purchase you are trusting us to make the best use of your gift to help children who need it right now.
