I just bought a goat. Actually, I just bought six of them.
Please don’t tell my wife — we have enough animals (although the appeal of not weed-wacking our property may be irresistible).
Actually, the goats aren’t for me — they’re part of a mission program through World Vision to donate animals to poor families and villages around the world. Unlike simple donations for food or clothing, livestock help sustain a family for the long term. They are food factories — turning grass and grain into nutritious milk, eggs, and other high-protein food sources.
If you’re not into goats, you can donate chickens, ducks, sheep, fish, cattle, or a fish pond. Really neat stuff.
So check it out, and make a difference in the lives of others here.
You don’t really need that new Blu-Ray player, now do you?
