This year’s slogan:
Give Goats. They Give Back.
I want to get this in before the shopping madness really takes hold. It’s just a tiny plug for the charity nearest and dearest to my heart – Heifer International.
For 65 years, Heifer has brought their unique method of combating poverty to people all across the globe. With the help of their donors, farm animals – goats, rabbits, cows, sheep, and more – are brought into poor communities. The recipients have been trained in the care and feeding of their new livestock, and are required to ‘pass along’ to a neighbor the first offspring born to their ‘gift’….
Can you think of a better way to help people help themselves?
Some of us – ok, probably MOST of us after a certain point in our lives – don’t want for much in life…not another pair of pajamas or slippers, nothing else that needs dusting. How about a donation, in the name of someone who cares?
