“For it is in giving that we receive.” – St. Francis Assisi
Its that time again. Christmas is just around the corner. Presents to be made or bought. Do you ever have the problem of just not knowing what to get people sometime like I do? At a loss as to what to get the person that has everything? Wanting to get a present that really means something? I have a brilliant solution!
Through World Vision International you can purchase animals for hungry people around the world, as well as clean water, clothes, education, and life saving mosquito nets. Make the purchase in honor of your special someone as a gift, a gift that really means something. A gift that makes a difference!
For the price of a movie on DVD, you can purchase 2 chickens for a hungry family, giving them a lasting source of not only nutrition but also income.
For the price of 2 tickets to the Symphony you can purchase 5 ducks for someone who could desperately use the protein rich eggs, the down feathers for bedding and warm clothing, and fertilizer for their crops!
Have a little more to spend? For the price of a Nintendo Game, you could donate a goat!
I think it’s a brilliant idea, really and truly. I do think I may be giving a few chickens and perhaps a duck or two as gifts this holiday season. I’m just so grateful that I have friends that would appreciate this version of giving as much as I do!
