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
