Give a Shining Life Gift

Are you looking to buy a gift for someone that will make a real difference? This year we are once again offering Shining Life Gifts. Shining Life Gifts are precious because they are genuinely needed.

Each gift purchased will help to fund our work with three village communities in Galewela, central Sri Lanka. 3000 people live in these villages. Most of the families earn only a small, erratic income from agriculture, there is a severe lack of educational facilities and limited opportunities for children in the area. We have asked these communities to identify what would make a real difference to them as they build a brighter future. It is these ideas that are being passed on to you as Shining Life Gifts. You can therefore be confident that each Shining Life Gift has been identified by the community as being important to them.

When you purchase a Shining Life Gift, it will be sent to you electronically – avoiding the slow Christmas post (although if you would rather receive a gift card in the post we can send your Shining Life Gift to you in this way). You will receive a detailed description of the gift you have purchased a long with a community photograph to pass on to your intended recipient; your chosen gift will be given directly to the families of Galewela. Shining Life Gifts will change the lives of these children in Galewala and thanks to you, your friends and family will know that they'll be making a real and lasting difference.

You can order the gifts online by clicking on the 'Add to Cart' buttons below. You will then be taken to the Paypal site where you amend your order if needed. You can pay by credit card securely using Paypal. Your Shining Life gift card will then be sent out to you.

If you prefer to pay by cheque, please download this form and post it to us with your cheque.
