Lets not give that goat for Christmas…

I honestly never liked the idea of giving a goat as a “Christmas present” to people in the developing world, and found a couple of articles about it that I thought I would share with you.

From Reuters Alertnet: Ditch the charity goat, buy shares for Xmas (the article includes plenty of links)

From Times UK: Ethical Givers are Divided on the Goat Gimmick

From the Independent: Festive Gifts: A Donkey is for Life…

This last articles explores the selection of available animal-giving charities available.

Or here is a better gift: impeach people who invade other countries based on false pretenses.
