For many years, one of the Christmas presents my aunt would give us was a donation to the Heifer Project, now known as Heifer International. Although it's similar to the Oxfam Unwrapped program I mentioned a few days ago, there's a slight difference in their emphasis. They have something of a pay it forward model, where people who receive an animal and training, pass on that training, as well as giving the first female animal that their own livestock produces to another family. I've always liked the idea of the Heifer Project and am happy to endorse their work here now.
