Share A Fruitful Kwanzaa Gift For Someone’s Future This Year

Celebrate Kwanzaa with a special gift that gives back to projects that exemplify the seven principles of the holiday.


Kwanzaa is a holiday observed annually from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 to reaffirm and restore African heritage and culture. The seven-day holiday is based on seven key principles:

  • Umoja (Unity)
  • Kujichagulia (Self-Determination)
  • Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility)
  • Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics)
  • Nia (Purpose)
  • Kuumba (Creativity)
  • Imani (Faith)

A GlobalGiving Gift Card is a special way to celebrate Kwanzaa because the person you share it with can donate the value of the gift card to a meaningful charitable project of their choice.

Celebrate Kwanzaa with charitable acts.

A GlobalGiving Gift Card can build community and help solve problems by supporting nonprofit organizations that advance social change.

With a GlobalGiving gift card, give the gift of support to causes like Abalimi Bezekhaya – Planters of the Home. In Cape Flats, South Africa, unemployment rates are as high as 90%, and people living in the densely populated area experience hunger, environmental degradation, and limited resources. Their program trains and supports individuals in these communities to grow and replicate organic vegetable gardens, promoting urban agriculture and resource distribution.

Kwanzaa Gift Cards are easy to give and redeem.

You can give your loved one the opportunity to help plant a farm for the San people, one of Nambia’s six indigenous communities, to supplement their food resources. A GlobalGiving eCard offers thousands of ways to foster collective work and responsibility in local communities across the world.


Kwanzaa celebrates African heritage.

The seven principles of Kwanzaa were determined the year before the first celebration in 1965 and capture a philosophy of unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. Nonprofits like H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People be Empowered) and Maison de la Gare work year-round to empower their communities. From Atlanta, Georigia to the Republic of Senegal, your gift can exemplify the holiday spirit.

A GlobalGiving Gift Card allows the recipient to build a brighter future, from supporting families all over the world who have left their homes to stay safe in areas of crisis to sponsoring a deaf child’s education by lifting the financial burden of families living through disasters. Small acts like a gift card can make an immense difference in communities.
