Celebrate with ActionAid

Give a gift that will last a lifetime. Celebrate your birthday, wedding or other special occasion with ActionAid, by asking for donations in place of gifts.

Your support will change the lives of women and girls around the world, for good.

Celebrate your wedding

Getting married? Instead of a traditional gift list, check out our Weddings Gifts in Action site: a brand new gift registry with a difference for your wedding or civil ceremony.

Tell us about your big day and create your gift list webpage, choosing your favourites from our fantastic range of alternative gifts.

Share with your guests and every time a guest buys you a gift, you’ll be changing the lives of some of the world’s poorest women and girls.
