Well then, you can imagine my excitement when I got a catalog in the mail from Heifer International. On their website, they explain their program:
Bringing an End to World Hunger Through Unimaginable Blessings
Today, millions of people who were once hungry will be nourished by milk, eggs and fresh vegetables.
Families who for generations knew only poverty will be building new homes and starting businesses.
Children who once headed out to the fields to do backbreaking work will be heading into schoolrooms to learn to read.
And people who never thought they’d be in a position to help someone else will be experiencing the joy of charitable giving.
How is this possible?
With Heifer’s proven approach – almost 60 years in the making – to helping people obtain a sustainable source of food and income.
So, I'm flipping through the catalog, and lo and behold, a page of goats!
Moral of my post: If you're looking for a gift (especially a gift for me!), consider a goat. It would make me really happy. Not to mention, the family who gets the goat :-)
