Social distancing, staycations, masks… summer 2020 is unlike any other. And unfortunately, although we’ve seen some restrictions lifted in the UK, it’s clear the coronavirus crisis is still far from over. 

But it’s not all bad! Because we’ve just added three new incredible gifts to our Gifts in Action collection, so you can make a real difference during these challenging times. 

Our brand new gifts help provide essential equipment for families around the world to stop the spread of coronavirus, and save lives. So whether it’s a birthday present, a thank you gift or simply a summer treat, you’ll know your gift is changing the lives of people in need right now. 

1. Give a quarantine kit and help protect a family (£14)

For just £14, our quarantine kit gift is a budget-friendly way to show your friends and family just how much you care. 

Containing essentials like hand sanitiser, soap, a digital thermometer and masks, ActionAid quarantine kits are being distributed in some of the world’s poorest communities to help stop the spread of Covid-19, and save lives.

Personal Protective Equipment can be the crucial difference that allows ActionAid’s frontline workers to keep safely supporting people throughout this crisis. 

So when you buy a PPE gift you can show a friend or family member how much you love them - *and* show your appreciation for frontline heroes around the world.
