    Inspired Gifts

    What does "inspired" mean here?

    The Internet is another medium that charities are trying to make good use of. For example, UNICEF recently launched a program called Inspired Gifts. This program lets you celebrate special occasions, such as birthdays or anniversaries, by donating gifts to needy children. These gifts include a mosquito net, a vaccine, a water pump, and a bicycle, to name a few. When your family member or a friend buys an Inspired Gift for your birthday, it is registered at the UNICEF supply center in Copenhagen. Then it is delivered to a child who needs it most in one of the 155 countries in which UNICEF operates.

    Re: Inspired Gifts

    I did, but I still can't get it through the common meaning of it in a dictionary.
