WWF has been supporting the plight of endangered animals for as long as I can remember. This season give a gift that gives back by picking up a WWF Canada Symbolic Adoption. With over 30 species that can be symbolically adopted you are sure to find just the right one for a special someone on your list. Each kit supports their conservation efforts to help people live in harmony with nature.
In addition to being a tangible gift to give and a gift to the animals they support purchasers will receive an applicable tax receipt for a portion of their purchase. If you adopt two species, or a purchase of $80+ before taxes, you will receive free shipping.
Each kit includes:
- A high-quality wildlife plush
- A personalized adoption certificate (5” x 7”)
- A stunning species poster and information pamphlet about the work your gift will help support
- And one of three reusable gift bags of your choice
The Plush is rated for children 3+

Cuddle + Kind is a Canadian company who is ethically producing these great knit dolls, and helping feed hungry children around the world in the process. Made from non-toxic materials each doll is handcrafted by skilled artisans, providing sustainable fair trade employment for Peruvian women. For every doll sold, cuddle + kind donates 10 meals to a child in need.
There are nine whimsical and stylish dolls to choose from, each with their own name, birthdate and personality that children will love. Each hand-knit doll makes a fantastic shower gift, birthday or Christmas present and adds a modern, colourful touch to any nursery décor.
Gnoments are a unique relationship-building tool that helps you share and create special moments with the one you love. The Gnoments kit includes a boy and girl gnome, each with a special pouch for including notes, mementos, and gifts, along with an embedded NFC chip for high-tech messages, and a 32 page hard-covered, illustrated story book with ideas to get you started so you can begin making special moments today.
These cute Gnomes are marketed to couples, but I think they would also be a great way to connect with your children at any age, but especially the tough teen years.
UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. They work tirelessly to provide children with healthcare and immunization, clean water, nutrition and food security, education, emergency relief and more. UNICEF is supported entirely by voluntary donations and helps children regardless of race, religion or politics.
Your gift can be one of many. Choose to provide clean drinking water, prevent diseases, help children gain an education and so much more. This is one gift that you not only need to give to others, but also to yourself. Help the plight of those struggling to survive around the world.
