All I want for Christmas is my….Waterbuffalo.

I recently had the opportunity to flip through a wish book of a different color.  It was “the most important gift hp_logo_tagcatalog in the world,” Heifer International‘s glorious books of gift options–the opportunity for those more financially secure to share with others throughout the globe with the gift of livestock or other resources.

Heifer’s approach is to help people obtain a sustainable source of food and income. Recipients agree to share the offspring of gift animals with others in need, and are taught about sustainable agricultural production. Such “agroecology” is especially important in areas where land is overused or exploited for immediate gain at the cost of future usability.
