      Pretty presents under the tree aren’t the only way to brighten a child’s spirits this holiday season—especially if that child happens to live in a region of the world where even the most basic needs are hard to fulfill.

      With the Save the Children Gifts of Joy catalog, you can help fund programs aimed at giving underserved children in the U.S. and around the world a healthy start in life, protection from unsafe living conditions and the opportunity to learn.

      And now through the end of 2018, when you purchase any of the 75 gifts featured in the catalog in honor of a friend, colleague or family member, Johnson & Johnson will match each dollar you spend, up to a total donation of $450,000.

      Get inspired with some of our favorite presents from the catalog that have the potential to make a big impact.
