How About a Goat for Father’s Day?

Father’s Day is coming up (on June 20), and if you’re anything like me, you’re dreading it because you have no idea what to get your hubby or dad! Well, I have a suggestion for you: How about a goat? Okay, let me explain. Through the World Vision Gift Catalog, you can purchase a poverty-fighting gift for someone in need in the name of your loved one. Wouldn’t “Dad” feel good knowing that he could be making a big difference in the life of a child?

The World Vision Gift Catalog has more than 100 poverty-fighting gifts that range in price from $16 to $39,000. For example:

If he loves sports, why not buy 4 soccer balls for a school for $32?

For only $17, your plant-loving guy could donate hybrid or drought-resistant seeds to a farmer.

Your music lover might love to provide art and music instruction for a child (just $40).

Got a first-time daddy? Why not give supplies to a new mother for her baby ($77)?

If these ideas don’t sound quite right for your guy, go to www.worldvisiongifts.org to find something that suits his personality and interests. And, yes, you could even give a goat! More than 50,000 goats were given to families in need last year.

When you purchase a gift in your loved one’s name from World Vision, they’ll send a special card to him describing the gift and the wonderful impact it will have on the life of another. Now that’s a gift he’ll never forget!
