Review for Oxfam America Unwrapped, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I don't believe this is a separate nonprofit from Oxfam America, but in any case, I had great experiences buying charity gifts through Oxfam Unwrapped. They have a great selection (such as goats, bees, school supplies), reasonable range of prices, and excellent service to recipients & donors make this a good way to support Oxfam America. I enjoy the fun celebrity endorsements from people like Aziz Ansari.

Review for Oxfam America, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Oxfam America works to right the wrongs of poverty & injustice on several levels, through directly working with people (from humanitarian work in Syria to helping small-scale farmers produce more & withstand climate change better) to grassroots advocacy and activism (such as pressuring the world's 10 largest food & beverage companies to be more just & transparent). As a volunteer and a donor, I have been impressed with the dedication, knowledge and passion of Oxfam staff and volunteers. I think Oxfam has a large impact and does a lot with donors' money. I also appreciate that they do not take U.S. government funding, keeping their advocacy positions more neutral.
