Yes... there is a god!! But I digress...
Aid agencies such as Oxfam and World Vision have online gift shops whereby customers can buy gifts of livestock, vegetable gardens, medical equipment, and other ‘items’ extremely useful for developing communities. The idea is that the recipient of the gift, perhaps a friend or child, gets a certificate and warm inner glow, while the actual purchased item is given to people or communities in the developing world.
“Goat Gifting,” says Oxfam Australia, “is a wise investment choice.” And at only AU$39 each, Goat Gifting is great value for money.
Communities can start with one and end up with a herd. Best of all, the first female kid is given to another family and the process starts all over again. A sensible gift for the big kid in all of us.
Not convinced? Well, read the testimonial...
“Having goats has really improved our lives. They don’t need any special food and very quickly become a source of income. They also breed very quickly and we can share them with others.”
- Kamala Anruradhapura, Sri Lanka.
But as with any other valuable investment, one can’t afford to dilly-dally...

And I haven’t so far experienced any untoward career consequences.
