12+ ways to gift it forward
Offering a gift or a kind gesture “just because” is a simple way to lift someone else’s spirits, while lifting your own at the same time. To help you think about how you and your family might want to “gift it forward” this holiday season, we asked a dozen families to share activities they’ve tried and loved in real life.
Host a Give a Goat Party!
Goats make us smile but, more importantly, they can provide nutritious milk and a source of sustainable income to a family in a developing community. For $50, your family can donate a dairy goat to one of our WE Villages. Or join with others to multiply your gift! Then get together and celebrate your contribution, while bringing awareness to the issue of global poverty, by hosting a super-fun goat-themed party.
