    Heifer.org - where you can buy chickens (or other animals..) for people in developing companies.

    I just sent someone a flock of chickens [​IMG] Since I can't have MY OWN yet.. might as well enable someone else who can use 'em..

    I'm also going to use this site for the 'hard to buy' people on my list.

    And I was all prepared with a humourous remark.

    That is a wonderful thing......

    My office decided to do a Kiva microloan (http://www.kiva.org) instead of giving gifts this year. Instead of agonizing over what they may/may not like, and spending money on that, we're each chipping in $10 and making a difference in a real woman's life overseas. When she pays back the loan, we'll reinvest it into another woman's business.

    Isn't Kiva one of the neatest things you have ever seen?
