How it works

Whether you’re supporting a crisis response team in your local area, helping put a roof over a refugee’s head or covering the cost of first aid training, why not dedicate your gift of kindness to someone you love?

Follow the three steps below to find out how to give a gift that gives back:

1 . Choose a gift

Have a browse and go for a gift that will support a refugee, or cover the cost of a local service near you – it’s up to you.

2 . Make it personal

Dedicate your gift of kindness to someone you love. It can arrive as a personalised e-card or a gift card in the post (£2). Just remember to include the recipient’s address on the product page.

3. Send your kindness

Add the gift of kindness to your basket and we’ll send out your e-card the next working day. If you select a gift card, this will arrive within 3-5 working days in the post.

The British Red Cross has partnered with Urban Makers – a collective of independent makers who create beautiful, ethically made products with the environment in mind. Every time you buy from the British Red Cross Shop, you’ll be helping us carry out our life-changing work, as well as supporting independent designers across the UK.

We receive 10% of the total sales made through Urban Makers purchases. This revenue will allow us to continue to support others – from helping people home after a stay in hospital, to hiring a wheelchair, to reuniting families torn apart by war.

What we do

We help anyone, anywhere in the UK and around the world, get the support they need if crisis strikes.
