Hope you are enjoying the summer! We’ve got some updates about Present Aid that we would like to share with you.
New gifts – coming this September
Congratulations to the winner of our Easter competition to choose a new gift. Jane decided on Loroco seeds which are a completely new gift to Present Aid.
Jane went on to explain why she chose the seeds: "My reasoning is that people's basic needs need to be catered for at all times, whether or not there is a disaster or refugee situation. I also thought that the low cost of the gift would make it suitable for children to buy, or people to give as extra gifts, and anyone wanting to make a bigger contribution could buy several of them.
"It also speaks personally to me as my husband runs a very successful blog about growing food in our little kitchen garden!"
The full list of new gifts are set to be revealed at the start of September and we’ll send you more information about these ahead of the launch.
We have recently updated our product feed following feedback. The up-to-date version is live and can be accessed from the Links and Tools section of our merchant profile. We will also update our product feed with new gifts when these are introduced in September.

Key gifts over the summer
While we prepare to settle in for the final stages of this year's World Cup we're encouraging people to give a hand to all those who would love a perfect patch of greenery for their livelihoods.
A gift from Present Aid can help make a couple's wedding day extra special by giving a unique gift that brings happiness to others across the world. We've put together the perfect selection of gifts to help the happy couple celebrate.
A dry summer?
Summer is finally here and we've had a few weeks of sun to enjoy. While we have easy access to clean water during the warm weather, Present Aid offers gifts that can help people who don’t, so that they have access to safe water.
Please get in touch if you have any questions at all about our program or projects.
