Better World Gift cards aren’t just a blessing to the person receiving it–with all those beautiful thoughtful words–it’s a blessing to the family who received that donation. But so many people don’t get that experience and can’t be a part of making that change, without someone like you hosting a stall.
This year especially, we need you to be a voice and make a way for more people to help families fight against poverty. According to the World Food Programme, the number of people facing acute hunger has more than doubled since 2019 and together we can help feed them. We need you to open up your table and demonstrate your generosity and hospitality as you host, so that together we can help feed more families and ensure they have livelihoods for the future.
Will you help share those opportunities and stories with your church and community this year? Fill out the form below to register now.
Run your stall in your church, school, university, markets or your office. We’ll send you everything you need like a full pack of gifts and promotional material and can process donations by cheque, cash or card—online and in-person.
Why not host your next big event as a Better World party? We’ll send you a selection of gifts and stories, plus resources and a personalised webpage for you to share with your party guests. Together, you can raise money to help families lift themselves out of poverty.
Designed specifically for you to take into your workplace to share with your colleagues. Set up a stall near your desk or in a common area with sample cards and a QR code poster so your colleagues can order via a personalised webpage easily.
Who needs a special event to host? This is the easiest way to share Better World Gifts with your friends and family, whenever and wherever. Receive your own personalised webpage where your loved ones can order their gifts. And let us do the rest.
Each year volunteers like you connect with their friends, family and local community in a way that spreads the joy of generosity and transforms the lives of people living in poverty. That’s what hosting Better World Gifts is all about. It brings people together to help end poverty. When you host, you’re at the heart of it all.
Get to know your community better by hosting. Talk to your community members and share your passion for ending poverty with them.
By hosting a stall, you’ll have many opportunities to share and have meaningful conversations about generosity and poverty.
You’re giving others an opportunity to choose a gift that makes a difference in the world. And, by doing so, you’ll be helping to change even more lives.
I love telling people how their purchase will help families and individuals who struggle everyday to put food on the table for their families. How self esteem grows when you can support your family.
-Pat James, host at Toronto Baptist Church
We have answers!
Running Better World Gifts is about connecting with your community and sharing your love for helping families living in poverty. As you bring your friends and family together around your stall, you can have an even bigger impact. When you decide to run Better World Gifts, you choose whether you want to run it in-person, online or both. Either way, you’ll get all the resources you need and plenty of support to make it fun and easy! It’s three easy steps:
See? Easy as.
The difference? Just a bit of time. Of course, you can run Better World Gifts either as a stall or as a party. See what you think:
A Better World Gifts stall runs for consecutive weeks over a period of time – you choose how long and where. Maybe it’s at your church, school, office or local community markets. We send you the cards, set up a personalised online stall, and provide you with stories and resources to help you run your stall. We’ll also provide you with information on how to keep your stall COVID safe. Don’t panic: we’ll provide you all the phone support you might need as well as other prompts throughout that period.
A Better World Gifts party is a one-off event where you invite people to come and donate to purchase Better World Gifts cards. It works well as a Christmas or Birthday party to help raise money for families in need instead of buying other gifts. Better World Gifts doesn’t have to be the focus but we’ll send you cards, set up a personalised online stall, and provide you with resources to help you, well, party at your party! We’ll even give you lots of stories to share about how the cards make an impact. And who doesn’t want to hear a good story at a party?!
Once you register, we will send you a Gift Stall kit and/or set you up with an online stall. We’ll help you to organise your stall each step of the way.
If you registered for an in-person stall, watch your mailbox for your package. Your kit will include:

All ideas and locations welcome. If you think you need extra cards or resources where you’re hosting, then let us know and we’ll try and help as much as possible. And remember to take a photo of your stall and tag us on Facebook or Instagram!
