Give the Gift of Joy for the Holidays
All over the world, Oxfam-Québec is working to bring joy to communities. Our teams spread the love by fighting against inequality and poverty on a daily basis.
With the help of our local partners, we give people in need the tools and means to thrive, now, and for years to come.
When you make a donation, you give the gift of health, equality and dignity. No matter the amount, your gift has a greater impact than you may realize.

The benefits of giving
If you’ve ever volunteered your time, you’re familiar with the joy that comes with knowing you’re serving something and someone. Making a donation has the same effect.
In addition to bringing happiness to others, giving to a humanitarian cause feels good. Indeed, generous people are often happier. Not to mention that joy is contagious!
Giving is a gift that keeps on giving! Science has proven that bringing joy to others makes us happy. And, by giving to Oxfam-Québec, you are choosing to uphold your values in a sustainable way.
Joy to the world
Did you know?
Giving feels good! Not least because acts of generosity promote happiness. It has been shown that altruism activates regions of the brain that are associated with reward processing, even in very young children.
➧ Aknin, Hamlin et Dunn (2012)
“They say you can’t buy happiness, but knowing I’m helping others fills me with such joy! And I know that it will last all year, so I decided to become an Oxfam-Québec monthly donor.”

“My donation is truly insignificant compared to your work and that of your colleagues. Keep it up, so many people are counting on you and Oxfam. My donation is truly insignificant compared to your work and that of your colleagues. Keep it up, so many people are counting on you and Oxfam.”
