UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.

For every child, inspiration

Inspired Gifts (IG) are life-saving and life-changing supplies that UNICEF delivers to children and communities around the world. Individuals may purchase the gifts on our website, and we deliver them to a child in need, where ever they are. The purchaser may choose to make the donation in the name of a friend or relative, in which case they will receive an e-card showing how a gift has been sent in their honour. We are now further strengthening the format by developing the service to benefit the buyers’ own children as well. To support in this, we are looking to hire an additional e-shop operations consultant for our office in Beijing.
