Last week, we talked about giving to your community. This week, we're reaching a little further to help those all over the globe.
Last Friday was Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year and today is Cyber Monday, supposedly the busiest on-line shopping day of the year. While you're clicking away with that credit card in your lap, check out Heifer International. You know that adage, “Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.” Heifer International gives us all the opportunity to give families the tools to feed themselves for a lifetime.
You can purchase an animal or gift basket of your choosing for a family. And, you don't have to buy an entire animal — you can chip in on one for just $10.
Include your children, by asking them to help pick a furry friend. If you are someone who already has everything you need, or are just a selfless saint, you can register for gifts on the site and ask friends and family to buy something off of your Heifer registry.
