All items in the Amnesty International Catalogue 2005 are ethically sourced and many are branded Amnesty International goods.

Amnesty International UK Director Kate Allen said:

"Not only is the Amnesty International catalogue packed with fantastic high-quality goods that make ideal gifts, but the proceeds will help support vital human rights work.

"Buying a gift this Christmas from the Amnesty catalogue means you’re also helping to support human rights."

All goods in the catalogue are available to purchase online 24 hours a day at www.amnestyshop.org.uk , as well as from a dedicated telephone order line (8.00am-8.00pm: Monday-Friday; 9.00am-4.00pm Saturday-Sunday).

Some of the goods are also available from Amnesty International’s network of book shops.
