Heifer International — A Gift From the Heart

Monday, December 20th, 2010

My family and I started giving gifts from Heifer International (www.heifer.org) a few years ago, and it has been a great experience. In your loved one’s honor, you can give the gift of a share of a sheep, a flock of baby chicks or a goat that will provide income and food for a needy family.

Kids love to help pick out the gift. You can donate as little or as much as you like by buying shares of an animal or a flock, too, so this gift idea works even for young kids who want to contribute some of their own money. The organization provides beautiful gift cards to give to your recipients.

Check out this wonderful organization and choose a gift with your children. Is there a better way to add true meaning to the holidays than by helping someone else?
