Make a Difference When Gift Giving, Give a Goat

ground_bag_03If you’re like many of us, you’re not sure what gifts to pick up for friends and family. Why not give a gift that will be sure to please the recipient and make life better for others? It’s easier than you think. The best way to help your local community is to buy local and buy products made in the USA. Another way to invest for the greater good is to purchase products from nonprofits. Either of these choices will make a positive impact in our communities and are sure to make your family and friends appreciate your thoughtfulness.

If you’d like to raise some eyebrows while making a difference, give a goat, a share of a goat or another animal through Heifer International. It doesn’t stop there. You can make this a family tradition, and get a different animal each year to celebrate the holidays or to remember and honor a loved one.

You can shop gift stores online at the American Heart Association, American Red Cross, Bread for Life, Best Friends Animal Society, Do Good Buy Us, Handcrafting Justice, Human Rights Campaign, NPR, National Wildlife Federation, PBS Sierra Club and St. Judes are just a few of the fine nonprofit gift shops to choose from, and all of their respective links are available here: Online Gift Stores That Benefit Nonprofits

Lastly, my thanks to ABC News for compiling an updated list of American-made products. To check out products made in the USA, click here: Made in America 2013: Gift Ideas
