Need a last-minute gift idea that doesn’t require heading out to a crowded mall? It won’t result in any returns or exchanges. Instead of gifts, give cows. Through a group of friends, Rockin’ Rural Women on Facebook, we are raising funds to help Heifer International. Donate here. Cows have nine times the impact on poverty-stricken communities as their offspring keep giving. Heifer International works with communities to give cows that families can milk and provide much needed nutrients and extra income. Additionally, they help install stoves that can burn manure for cooking and heat. I have already donated to Heifer International for Cows for Christmas and will add to my donation on Christmas Day.
With each comment on this post through Christmas Day, I will donate $1 per comment, up to $250 additional to Cows For Christmas. Just comment below on what your favorite Christmas gift is that you ever received. My 1985 Cabbage Patch Doll is still a big memory for me and definitely a favorite childhood Christmas gift.
