How long will it take to receive my gift(s)?
Your postal gift should arrive within 3-5 working days* or you can send an e-card for instant delivery. You can also call into our Belfast office during office hours (9am-5pm) to pick up your cards directly.
Alternatively, you can choose to send an e-card which will be emailed directly to the recipient.
*We are currently unable to fulfill postal card orders. Please select our e-card option at checkout to ensure delivery in time for Mother's Day.
How do I send a Concern Gift?
It's easy! Just choose a gift you think your friend or relative would like. For instance, if you know someone who just adores reading then why not buy them Literacy classes so they can spread the joy? Just order online and their gift will help a person who really needs it.
Where does the money go to?
All the money goes into one of our four global programmes - education, livelihoods, health and emergency - unless otherwise stated.
If I buy a goat, will a family definitely get a goat?
In many cases yes; your money would go into the livelihoods programme and a family could get a goat. However, sometimes a family needs a cow more than they need a goat. In that case, we'd put your money towards providing one of those instead. Whatever you choose, we promise your money will go into the relevant programme.
What will my friends or family get?
If you purchase a gift for a friend or relative, you can choose to send them either an e-card or a postal card. If you choose to send them an e-card, they will receive an e-mail telling them how to view it. The e-card can be personalised with your own message and will include information about the gift itself. E-cards are great because they're quick to send and cost less money to create, which means more money for someone in need. E-cards can be sent instantly or you can choose to schedule for a later date.
If you'd prefer, you can give them a real card instead. We'll post you the blank gift card which you can then personalise with your own greeting and send on to your friend or relative.
