By purchasing a Gift for Good, both you and your loved one will directly benefit a child or family Barnardos works with.The gifts are based on the most used items by families and will support them in practical ways this Christmas and throughout the year:

PJs, bed socks and slippers – to provide warmth and wellbeing.
Food Voucher - to feed children and their potential.
Filled Soap bag for a family - for health and independence.
Books – providing a new chapter of opportunity.
Duvet, Pillow & Covers - to cover a good night’s sleep.

Gifts for Good range from €18 to €50 to suit all budgets.

Each Gift for Good helps to enhance Barnardos essential services that are provided in project centres around Ireland. The funds raised are allocated to our general appeal fund, allowing us to respond to a range of individual and often very complex needs in the most practical, efficient and impactful ways possible. In 2016, Barnardos services worked with over 14,100 Children and Families across 40 communities nationwide.
