Thoughtful gift ideas

By choosing CBM Meaningful Gifts you will be helping people with disabilities living in poverty in some of the world’s poorest places.

Meaningful gift shopping represents a powerful way you can partner with CBM to bring transformational change to someone with a disability. Not only will your gift giving bring delight to your loved one, but it will bring life-changing help to some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

A charity gift donation is a meaningful present for a loved one that has a tremendous impact on the life of the recipient living in a developing country. Our online charity gift shop has a range of items instead of traditional gifting, perfect for holiday season Christmas gifts, birthdays, Mother’s Day and other special events, all going towards supporting a good cause.


How to choose the perfect gift

1. Choose a Meaningful Gift

Choose a gift that inspires you, or just one that fits your budget! You can find a great gift to suit any special occasion for as little as the purchase price of a cold brew coffee.

2. Personalise your Gift

Personalise every gift  by selecting an e-card to send to your loved one. It’s a lovely way to create something fun and make your person feel extra special.

While supporting a non-profit is a worthy cause in itself, you may also wish to remind those close to you that you care about them with a message too.
