Donations instead of Gifts for UNICEF Ireland’s Ukraine Winter appeal

Special occasions offer an ideal opportunity to show your commitment to making the world a better place. This Christmas, rather than sending gifts to customers, choose to make a donation to UNICEF Ireland’s Donations instead of Gifts campaign, helping children and families affected by war in Ukraine. A donation provides children in Ukraine with winter clothes and is a sensible and sustainable alternative to expensive Christmas presents. 

Simply donate the amount intended for your Christmas gifts to UNICEF. In return, your business will receive attractive campaign materials including web banners, social media and print assets. These campaign materials will show your employees, customers and business partners the commitment you’ve made to the children and families of Ukraine.  
 
Families of Ukraine have now endured over nine months of devastation and displacement since the war began. Winters in Ukraine are brutal, with biting winds, driving snow and freezing temperatures – sometimes as low as – 20°C. This Christmas, we encourage you to take part in our Donations instead of Gifts campaigns for the children and families of Ukraine and give children the chance for a warmer winter and a better future. 

Your help today cannot come at a better time for the children of Ukraine.
