Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn


BOSTON, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Get the New Year started right for yourself or loved one with a special gift from Oxfam America's Unwrapped catalogue.  You can 'be a pig' for only $50 or choose from the other 70 life-changing products at, ranging from $12 manure to $5,000 help a village recover from a disaster.

Oxfam's Unwrapped gift-giving campaign encourages shoppers to look for deeper meaning in the gifts they give, reminding shoppers that "You Are What You Give."  Shoppers can have a card mailed to recipients or send an electronic card to recipients.

"We all start the new year off with resolutions, some of them are easier to keep than others," said Stephanie Kurzina, vice president for fundraising and communications at Oxfam America.  "This one is a slam dunk – give a pig through and you can help fight poverty and help change a life in 2013."

Oxfam's Unwrapped catalog offers items that symbolically represent the organization's lifesaving work, and each purchase is a contribution toward Oxfam's many programs that help people living in poverty throughout the world.

All gift contributions are general donations to support Oxfam America's mission of fighting poverty, hunger and social injustice in over 90 countries around the world. Gifts are fully tax-deductible.  For more information on how to gift better this holiday season, visit
