Chicken with Colin
Not only will this card make you chuckle, it changes the lives of families living in poverty! We’ve partnered with much-loved entertainer Colin Buchanan to create a special edition card that will provide struggling families with the gift of a chicken.
Gifting this card to your loved one means a family in need will have a source of income and a supply of eggs to eat. Raising chickens is a simple, effective way for a family to reduce poverty. Even households struggling with illness or frailty will find raising chickens an easy activity that improves their family’s food security and income. It’s a boost for their financial situation, and their pantry!
This funny yet powerful card is perfect for Colin fans of all ages.

What is a Gift of Compassion?
Gifts of Compassion are real goods and services given to children and families in Compassion child development centres around the world when you purchase an item from the Gifts of Compassion catalogue. For every Gift of Compassion you order, you will receive a gift card to personalise for your friends and loved ones.
Funds raised from the Gifts of Compassion catalogue are used to support Compassion's Critical Needs, which remove obstacles to children's development and implement preventative action. These interventions include providing safe water, disaster relief, emergency medical care, vocational training, infrastructure, and much more: all issues that need to be addressed for a child to be released from poverty.
Compassion Australia uses Gifts of Compassion funds to meet the project needs represented in the catalogue.
How did you choose the gifts to include in this year’s Gifts of Compassion catalogue?
We work closely with our church partners around the world to make sure the gifts we’ve selected will make a big difference in the lives of the children and families in their communities. However, if at the time of purchase there isn’t a need for your chosen gifts, the funds will go towards a comparable, more urgent initiative.
How long does it take for Gifts of Compassion cards to be delivered?
Your Gifts of Compassion cards will be delivered to you within 14 working days from when you place your order. We send Gifts of Compassion cards directly to the person who orders them to enable you to personalise them before giving them to your friends and loved ones.
To make sure you receive your Christmas gift cards in time for Christmas, we recommend you make your order by 6 December. We will continue to take orders after this date, but your gift cards may arrive after Christmas.
What happens if there isn’t a need for the gift at the time I purchase it?
We are committed to ensuring that the gifts from our Gifts of Compassion catalogue facilitate good development work. This means responding to the changing needs of the children and families in Compassion’s program around the world. If at the time of purchase there isn’t a need for your chosen gift, the funds will go towards a comparable, more urgent initiative. For example, if there was no current need for chickens, then your funds may go towards a pig or another farm animal.
What do I receive when I give a Gift of Compassion?
For every Gift of Compassion you order, you will receive a beautiful gift card to personalise for your friends and loved ones. The amount you have donated will not be printed on the card.
Real goods and services represented by the Gift of Compassion item you order will be given to children and families supported by Compassion around the world.
