|Some people can be especially hard to shop for. The marketers know this and FaceBook and mail feeds are filled with ads for “20 unique gifts this Christmas.” Have you been searching for that perfect gift for someone but seem stumped? Why not give them a goat, or a cow, or some chickens? Now, if you dropped a live goat off at their house you might not get a Christmas card from them next year. But there is still a way to give.
That way is through our GOATS (Gift of Animals to Succeed) program at ICDM. You can give a goat, pig, chickens, or cow to a family in Bayonnais, Haiti in honor of your loved one. To your friends or family, the gift might be unique; to the Haitian family that receives it, it is life-giving. With the help of ICDM, they learn to raise their animals so they are productive and then they pay it forward by giving the offspring to another family. It is a gift that keeps on giving.
