Make a change with water
When you buy your gifts from Shop for Life, you are giving so much more than a card. As well as a unique gift for your friends, a card from shop for life doubles as a gift for someone in need.

Good hygiene is more important than ever
In 2020, personal hygiene became one of everyone’s top priorities. However, there are communities without even the basic necessities, that need your help to avoid infection, and stay in school and work.
Decent toilets transform communities
Living without a loo would hold anyone back, so we get decent toilets to people who need them. By building bogs around the world, together we can give the gift of privacy, safety and a healthier future.
Clean water? We’ll drink to that
Having a tap with clean water shouldn’t be a dream. We’ve been making it a reality for millions of people. You can help us today simply by sending a gift to a loved one. Cheers!
This winter, you can help change 50,000 lives in Frat, Ethiopia and thousands more around the world. With funding from the UK government, we will reach even more people on the frontline of climate change with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.
Until 4 February 2021, the UK government will match your donations to the Future on Tap appeal, up to £2 million, making double the impact.
A bit about Shop for Life
Every time you shop with us, your donation helps WaterAid reach people with life-saving clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.
With Shop for Life you don’t just give any old gift – you’re helping to make a change with water.
Our happy customers
I bought these as a gift for my dad on Fathers’ Day . He was really pleased with it and we’re both so happy that now a few more water pumps can be maintained. Am saving up to buy a water pump now!!
A fabulous idea as an alternative baby gift, my friends were delighted with it, especially baby Frankie, he knows how lucky he is!
The gift that keeps on giving. A brilliant gift to give a Valentine and provide water where it’s needed most.
How it works
We’re part of the WaterAid family
WaterAid's mission is to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
Through our partners in Africa, Asia and the Pacific region, we reached 2 million people with clean water and 3 million people with sanitation last year.
