That 42” 1080p HDTV you woke up at 3:00 a.m. on Black Friday to purchase for $50? You didn’t need it. Seriously.
There’s a huge difference between want and need, and for the most part we as Americans need very little. Except long candlelit bubble baths with Bradley Cooper as a sign of his undying love and devotion. That is a NEED.
Yet all over the world there are people who would love nothing more than a goat or sheep. (And not just your cousin Brock in Kentucky.)
That’s why this year, we’re giving gifts that provide life, hope and a promise for a brighter future to impoverished people in over 40 countries.
Through Heifer International, we can order a flock of chicks for $20. The protein-packed eggs can be the difference between life and death for a hungry child. Just $30 worth of bees can pollinate plants and provide a new source of income for a family through the sale of honey. Or for $120, a dairy goat can produce several quarts of milk a day, the excess of which can be sold or used to make cheese, butter and yogurt.
There are several gifts to choose from at price points to fit any budget. Plus, by gifting something in the name of someone you love, they’ll receive a beautiful card describing the gift and the good work it’s doing.
Sure, it’s not as sexy as a new Blu-Ray player or as bargainstastic as a $3 juicer, but these are the kinds of gifts that can truly change the world.
At least until Apple develops an app that allows users to extract sheep’s milk from their iPads.
