What are

Gifts of Hope

Real gifts that change real lives.

Gifts of Hope are not symbolic gifts – they are real gifts that change real lives. Many charitable gift programs direct your donation as they see fit. At Plan International Canada, we direct your donation to the specific gift you choose. When you choose a goat, your money goes directly to a goat program in a country like Cameroon. So the gift you choose is exactly where your money goes.

How it works

Plan International Canada’s Gifts of Hope is an ethical gift-giving program that gives twice: here and abroad. Here’s how it works:

1 Choose your gift

You choose a gift – say, a goat.

See our gifts

2 Send a gift card

Your friends or family member gets a personalized greeting card describing all the good their goat will do.

Learn more about gift card options

3 Make a real impact

A family in need benefits from the goat project – and their lives are changed.
