December 3 is #GivingTuesday, a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And we think the perfect #GivingTuesday gift is Heifer and ONE’s Limited Edition Goat.
Giving just one goat to a family in need can be enough to change their entire lives. One goat can provide up to one ton of milk a year – and that translates to milk, cheese, butter and other dairy products a family can sell on the market for income. And not just temporarily – the benefits of livestock are long-term and only grow over time. Take a look at the infographic below to see what we mean.
For Lovisa, the sole caregiver of 12 HIV-positive grandchildren, the gift of a goat has given her family enough income to send all 12 children to school for the first time. The trainings that Heifer provides to gift recipients, like the Kitomary family in Tanzania, is another factor that ensures ongoing success.
Feel good about where your money’s going this year and change a life by giving your goat now!
