“We are never really happy until we try to brighten the lives of others.” — Helen Keller

Helen’s Gifts, inspired by the example of our co-founder, Helen Keller, offer a great way to send heartfelt holiday wishes to family and friends — and to help prevent blindness and deliver essential health care to disadvantaged children and their families in 20 countries, including right here in the U.S.  


When you purchase and send our beautiful Helen’s Gifts e-cards, you are helping HKI provide vision correction for kids who cannot afford eyeglasses, sight-saving cataract and trichiasis surgeries, agricultural and nutrition education for marginalized women, treatments that prevent and cure disabling conditions — and so much more.

Helen’s Gifts offer our generous supporters another option for giving — and for celebrating what a charitable donation truly is: a deeply meaningful way to connect with other families in a complicated and often troubled world. Now, more than ever, we know how important it is to celebrate Helen Keller’s timeless and heroic legacy — by bringing the gifts of health and hope to as many vulnerable children, women and men as we can.

Making a charitable gift can be a transformative act, which is why we wanted supporters at all giving levels to have the ability to customize and send as many e-cards as they like. And because Helen Keller International receives the highest marks from charity watchdog organizations, you can purchase Helen’s Gifts with confidence, knowing that your compassionate contribution supports impactful, evidence-backed and cost-effective programs that serve impoverished people in some of the most challenging places in the world.

Thank you for choosing HELEN’S GIFTS to honor and inspire your loved ones now and throughout the year.
