Chick? Or goat? Or how about a sheep? No, it’s not what you think (get your minds out of the gutter!).

I guess I should have posted this BEFORE Christmas…but this is one of my favorite charities. If you haven’t heard of it, well, I’m gonna be the one to change that. I can’t even count how many people have received flocks of chicks, flocks of ducks, a goat, or a couple sheep from me in the past few years: Heifer International.

One day I’ll buy my mom a heifer. One day…(probably for her birthday this year, lol).

In all seriousness, it’s a great “gift” for the person who has everything, and it’s especially meaningful for anyone who is a fan of “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime.”

This year I bought a couple goats from Oxfam, a similar organization.

I also threw in some manure for a certain someone who appreciates that sort of humor. I just couldn’t resist!

So yeah. Next time you’re shopping for that hard-to-shop-for-friend, think about buying him some chicks (the feathered kind). If you’re lucky, he’ll see the humor. And either way, you’ll be helping someone feed and support their family for years to come.
