How Your Gift Could Change a Child's Life

When you shop with UNICEF Canada, you're helping to protect children in danger, transform their lives and build a safer world for every child.

You may already know about UNICEF Survival Gifts – real gifts that are guaranteed to reach children in need around the world. Now, UNICEF Market gives you more ways to buy ethical and meaningful gifts for others – or for yourself! – that make a difference for children.

Just one pack of greeting cards from UNICEF Market could provide 9 doses of measles vaccine to protect children against this deadly disease. Just one handmade necklace made by artisans in Peru could help vaccinate over 100 children against polio – a disease that has been all but stamped out.

Artisans benefit, too. UNICEF Market artisans set their own prices and earn more than they would make in their local economies. This means you'll help improve a family's quality of life, in addition to changing the lives of children around the world.

Whatever you purchase, it will be a triple win – for children, for artisans and for you.

Truly Unique Gifts, Ethically Sourced

Our new UNICEF Market is filled with beautifully crafted items direct from artisans around the world.

To make this a reality, we partnered with NOVICA who have been working directly with artisans in Asia, Africa and Latin America since 1999. Together we are committed to working only with socially responsible and ethical producers.

NOVICA has built a unique infrastructure that enables purchases to go from the country of origin directly to the consumer, while paying artisans the price they have set for themselves.

By shopping with UNICEF Market, you are not only helping to keep children safe; you are supporting small artisan producers and helping to bring economic growth to communities in many of the same places where UNICEF is working.
