All I want for Christmas is… a pair of goats?

This Christmas season, our youth group is going to be doing something a little bit different… we’re raising money to buy some goats!

We are partnering with an amazing organization called Heifer International.  They get money from donors, and use it to buy different animals for families in third world countries.  This is even better than standard monetary donations, because families can use these animals as a source of income to better their lives!

Our goal is to raise enough money to buy a pair of dairy goats for a family.  These goats will produce several gallons of milk a day for a family.  What the family doesn’t consume, they can sell at market.  A pair of goats usually has 2-3 kids at a time, so they will also be able to increase production or sell the offspring.

We can give one goat to a family for $120, and Wes and Candice will match what the teens bring in so that we can buy a pair of goats as a youth group if you guys can raise that $120.

We will take money for this all the way up until our Christmas party, so start bringing in an offering so we can bless a family with a way to lift themselves out of poverty!
