Because I wasn't clear about the goat

It gets its own post. :)

You don't give a goat to someone, you buy a goat through World Vision, who gives it to a needy family, and you give your friend or loved one a card saying that you bought a goat for a family in their name. Basically, rather than spending $75 on a light up Santa sweater that your loved one will probably never wear, you can spend the money on a goat that your loved one will also never wear, but the goat will be used to bless others in a country where hope is desperately needed.

World Vision has a whole catalog here. If for some reason, you don't like goats or the other suggestion I gave, they have a whole slew of great things you can give that'll help someone else and bless them for years to come.

Danica, my coworker's family did this last year. Instead of everyone buying eachother a 20 dollar gift they all pooled that money and bought the animal of the month plan through World Vision. It is just such an amazing thing. I am so glad you posted about it. It is a good reminder for me to do the same.

Have a wonderful weekend.

That's a cool idea too!

Goats for everyone! Every month!

My hubby and I are doing this in lieu of giving gifts to each other this year. Next year, we hope to do even more. We've sponsored a child for nine years now, and have given to WV for Christmas before, but never as much as this year. It feels good to do something that really matters. Blessings!
