‘Tis The Season

Filed under: Bleg,Life, the universe, & everything. — williamthecoroner @ 13:49

One of the nice things of having a job is the ability to get stuff you want.  Of course, I do have expensive tastes and finite funds.  I can’t get everything I want.  (and if Santa wants to put an F4AU on my front lawn, I surely would not complain).  But seriously, I’m really quite blessed in what I have and I’m well aware that there are many folks in the world who are worse off than me.

For many years, I’ve been a big supporter of Heifer InternationalOriginally founded in response to the devastation in Europe after World War II, this charity give agricultural animals, supplies, and support to people in need.  The catch is, and I really like this, is the recipient is bound to pass on the gift to others in the community.  Animals reproduce, after all, so one can pass on their offspring and create a chain reaction of giving.

One can fund projects as large as a reforestation effort or as small as a clutch of eggs.  I’m putting my money towards this project this year, and for most of the holiday giving I’ll be baking.  I urge you to pass along your gifts at this time of year, in the manner of your choosing.

If you want to go in with me on a Heifer gift, drop me a line in comments.

  1. William, I’d be interested, what’s the ante?

    • Jim–we’ll see how many people we get. A cow is $500- so a tenth of a cow is 50. I like beehives and chickens, myself.

      If everyone throws in $10-20, let’s see what we can do.
