2. Don't Have a Cow
Sheep, honeybees, or a heifer might seem like unusual gifts, but for the people around the world who receive them through Heifer International, they can be life-savers. Animals donated through Heifer help the recipients become self-reliant, and the recipients learn to share the offspring and their agricultural training with other families in need. All recipients are trained in animal management using Heifer's strictly enforced Animal Welfare Guidelines. How You Can Help: Honor a loved one by donating an animal of your choice--from a heifer to a llama to a flock of geese.
