Give a Duck For Christmas
December 17, 2009
How about giving someone a duck for Christmas? Not your cup of tea? Then perhaps you’d prefer to give someone a goat, or even a pig!
World Vision has a new gift catalog to help a third world family become self sustaining. They’ve taken the proverb “Teach a person to fish and feed them for life” to a whole new level.
Some of their ideas are a bit pricey. Not a problem! You can chip in to help buy a family their own donkey or even help a community dig it’s own deep well for a sustainable water supply.
My favorite though has to be the ducks. They’re great in flood prone areas like Bangladesh where families loose all their livestock after a bad monsoon season. Not a problem for ducks. They’ll still be a around to lay lots of eggs and raise lots of ducklings to sell.
