Teach a man to collect bees…

Posted by Amber Goodenough on November 08, 2010

So I know it’s early to start thinking about Christmas, but seeing as how it’s my FAVORITE holiday ever, there really isn’t such a thing as “too early”.  Now is the time of year where I start to pester my husband with questions like “What do you want this year? What should we buy your mom? Did you think about what you want for Christmas? My mom wants to know what to buy you?”  Questions like these get more intense as the weeks wear on.  And since he never gives me a straight answer unless I trap him in front of a computer, I’m sure you will be stunned when I share what happened last night.

He made a list of things he wants!! Holy Baby Jesus!

One of the things we decided to do this year is give the gift of livestock.  This year we will be donating to Heifer International, a charity that is helping to end hunger and poverty around the world.

Heifer International is a global nonprofit with a proven solution to ending hunger and poverty in a sustainable way. Heifer helps empower millions of families to lift them out of poverty and hunger to self-reliance through gifts of livestock, seeds and trees and extensive training, which provide a multiplying source of food and income.

Eric and I decided we want to gift each other a water buffalo and maybe a hive of bees, but there are lots of other fun animals from chicks to rabbits and llamas.  We are excited to be part of this amazing organization and hope that you will also consider donating to a community in need.  Read their blog for more info.  Happy Holidays!
