When Its Ok To Combine Cows and Mother's Day
Monday, May 11, 2009 | Author: eventer79
So I'm a day late, but hey, Sundays are for relaxing! And maybe some of you are as behind the curve as me at times and still need that perfect mother's day gift. I recommend Heifer International. Send a gift to moms around the world in honour of your mom. Yours will get a card and someone in dire need will get a cow, sheep, pigs, chickens, rabbits, goats, camels, water buffalo, or other animal or plant of your choice (even honeybees and trees!) which will allow them to be a little less hungry and a little more independent. Now they can have milk, honey, cheese, wool, feathers, eggs and more. All price ranges are available. Unlike cash gifts, Heifer International gives people real, tangible, lasting gifts they can change their life with. And what mom couldn't be proud about that??

If you are wondering what the heck this has to do with conservation, well, the simplest truth is that hungry people don't give a damn about conservation. They are hungry. And they will do whatever it takes to NOT be hungry, consequences be damned. So, if we can help assure that people's basic needs are covered, THEN we have more people who have a little more breathing room to care about the world around them. In addition, H.I. educates gift recipients on sustainable agriculture, animal care and welfare, and community agribusinesses so that even one cow may in fact create a future.

A very good gift for giving for many different occasions. My choice - honeybees.

Ooo, I was digging the bees too, that was a recent addition. I also like the sheep because they can give milk AND wool. I got a catalogue from them about a year ago, out of the blue and have been entranced by the idea ever since...
