Heifer International is a non-profit organization aimed at ending hunger.  They encourage people to donate money that will go towards a tangible, meaningful gift of their choice.  The gifts include training, animals or plants.  They are given with the hope of making families in need more self-sufficient.  You can donate a Heifer ($500), a trio of rabbits ($60), or a gift of honeybees ($30).  Gifts range in price from $10 to $5000.  The tangibility of the gifts makes your donation very real.  It's a great way to teach your children about giving to charity.  Who can you resist giving the gift of a flock of chicks?
