The goat did it

You know the saying "it takes a village"? Well, sometimes, it takes a goat. Click here to read this inspiring piece from yesterday's NYT editorial pages. It's truly an amazing story. And the charity mentioned (Heifer International) is similar to the one that my in-laws donate to (theirs is something through the Episcopal church). In fact, at Christmas, they got a goose for a family in some remote area in honor of W. Neat.
So after you donate to Rachel's Team in Training, or buy one of her Spirit Crosses, check out these charities that send animals to third-world areas. You could really have an affect on someone's life.
