Three Reasons To Donate To Christian Aid
- Feel good about yourself. When you buy a gift from Present Aid, the online shop for Christian Aid, not only are you making the person you buy the gift for happy, but you are also doing something good for someone who desperately needs it. If that doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, we don’t know what will.
- Make the world a better place. Christian Aid is a development and relief agency on the front lines of the battle against poverty. The money you spend with them through Present Aid will have a direct positive impact on the world and you will have helped make that happen.
- Present Aid makes for a great gift idea. We’ll bet the person you gift it too will never have received a charity gift before. You can be sure that person will be thrilled they are the inspiration behind a donation to a good cause.

Life before death
Christian Aid’s mission statement is “We believe in life before death”. That slogan is often used in conjunction with the agency’s logo. The organisation says it focuses its efforts wherever the need is greatest and pays no attention to religion, nationality or race. Christian Aid partners with as many as 570 local organisations in over 45 countries globally as it seeks to provide assistance to the poorest communities in the world. Christian Aid is a very important member of a number of campaigns including Climate Chaos and the Trade Justice Movement. Christian Aid is based in London where its headquarters are located and organises the UK’s largest door-to-door collection during Christian Aid Week which takes place annually during the month of May.
