Crisis gifts that help end homelessness

You can help someone on their journey out of homelessness through buying a gift that makes a difference.

Choose a gift

Give your friends and family a gift with a difference, that helps change people's lives and end homelessness.

Whether you buy a place for someone on an IT class or a set of kitchen basics for someone’s new home, your support will make a huge impact on the lives of people experiencing homelessness.


How it works

Step 1 – Pick your gift

Choose from any of the life-changing options below to buy for a loved one.

Step 2 – Choose an e-card designed by a Crisis client and add a personal message

Pick which artwork you'd like to send, then write a message to send with it.

Step 3 – Deliver

Choose whether to send it to yourself or straight to the recipient.


Your donation won't be limited to the specific gift you choose but will go directly to our work to end homelessness.

"Services like Crisis help. They support you. And give you a helping hand or for some people a shoulder to cry on and the promise of something better somewhere down the road." Hephzibah, Crisis client
