We’ve been trying to give generously this Christmas season. The canned food drive, of course, and there are these boxes of food you can buy and donate at Food Lion, and we’ve been adding one to our cart every time we go shopping. We had also been thinking about making some kind of Christmas donation in honor of my family (nothing against Mike’s family, but I have a lot of aunts and uncles and cousins and he basically just has his sister), but we hadn’t actually done it and we hadn’t decided what it would be. And then we saw this.
(See also: their adorable cover of “Single Ladies.”)
Sure, we could have just paid a dollar to download the song, but we like the song. And we like World Vision. (My family sponsored three children through World Vision when I was younger.) And we like livestock. So my aunts and uncles and cousins will be proud owners of a goat that will hopefully make life better for someone who needs it. If you need a last-minute gift, may I suggest a goat or some chickens or some ducks (but please don’t buy a rabbit, or at least don’t tell me about it) from World Vision or Heifer International.
(Or I guess you could run out to the mall get a scented candle instead.)
