Give the Gift of…Livestock?


In an effort to keep you out of the malls on this most Black of Fridays, here’s another great option for the practical environmentalist: donating livestock to needy families in developing countries. Heifer International lets you pick from among dozens of cute, furry, and sustainable gifts. Most of these animals provide milk, wool, or eggs, by the way. When you purchase one of these gifts, the recipient will get a note saying that you have purchased an animal for a needy family in their honor.

This is the perfect gift for someone who truly has everything. Like my parents. My parents are even saying these days, “We have so much useless stuff piled up in the garage, we don’t need anything this Christmas, really.”

Well guess what Mom, it’s time to make room for a llama and a couple sheep! Haha, that’s what I’ll tell them. Hehehe….

  1. Thanks for the kind words about Heifer International. I joined Heifer as new media director last year and really appreciate it when someone blogs about us.

    We have a new BlogRaising program that lets bloggers like you help us get the word out about Heifer and raise the money we need to do our work. Just go to to learn more.

    I hope you are able to take part.

    Again thanks for the good words.
