Heifer International: Gifts that Give Back




If you are looking for the PERFECT gift this season, why not do a donation of love in a persons name? Not only will you feel the gift of love from doing good you can also score a pretty cool wrap bracelet that can also be used as a necklace that is handmade in India. Be a blessing and give a blessing...what could be better? We have so much to be thankful for, this would make a great gift to a person that has it all. And it is reasonably prices you can buy in full or buy a share so the price range is from $10 and up. I, myself love the flock of chickens because my family has it's own flock of backyard chickens and I know what a blessing they have been.

Heifer International This holiday season, Heifer gives you the opportunity to send an animal in the name of a loved one that will help a family survive. You can send a goat, a pig, a water buffalo and even a flock of chicks – something unique and tangible. Who would’ve thought a goat could do so much – nourishment (milk, cheese, butter), financial support (the sale of milk products and wool), better crop yields through fertilizer and assistance clearing land and the opportunity for families to pass on the gift. Heifer gift recipients are required to pass on the first female offspring of their animal to another community member, continuing the gift of giving. There is a share of an animal for every price range and also perfect for a stocking stuffer! Most animals like pigs and goats are $120, but there are also cheap, yet effective gifts like honeybees at $30. If you are looking for a more expensive gift, perhaps for a whole family, the water buffalo for $250 is perfect. For more information, please visit http://www.heifer.org/gift-catalog/index.html
