Gifts and occasions

Whatever you are celebrating - from birthdays to weddings - you can support human rights by asking for guests, friends and family to contribute a small donation to Amnesty in place of presents.

Feel free to contact us to find out the best way to support Amnesty at your special occasion.

Wedding and Civil Partnerships

Are you beginning a civil partnership or planning your wedding? You can offer your guests the chance to donate to us rather than getting a new toaster.

Support our LGBTI rights work at your same-sex marriage

England and Wales will allow same-sex marriages from 29 March 2014.

This is a time to celebrate how far rights have come for people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI). There’s still progress to be made but we’re on the right track.

Unfortunately, the same isn’t true for LGBTI people in other parts of the world. In Belarus, Ihar Tsikhanyuk, an openly gay man and LGBTI activist, was arrested shortly after trying to register an LGBT organisation. At the police station he was punched repeatedly by police officers. He was then verbally abused for being gay, and threatened with more violence. Amnesty supporters wrote to the Belarussian authorities in November demanding an investigation into this.

'I don’t want to hide myself. I live openly. It is not easy in Belarus, but I want to show people that I am a person like everybody. With my example I want to show that it is possible to live openly.'
Ihar Tsikanyuk

If you are planning a same-sex marriage in England or Wales, why not do something for those denied LGBTI rights elsewhere, and support Amnesty at your wedding?

Fundraising online

Set up a JustGiving page for your celebration and ask friends and family to make a donation rather than buying you gifts.
