16 Gifts that will make the world a better place

As some of you know, my daughter has been involved in Plan Canada’s “Because I am a Girl” program, so when I was poking around the Net looking for gift ideas, these offerings from Plan Canada immediately caught my eye. 

I’ve given a baby goat before – they are just too cute. This year, I was thinking maybe I’d spring for a clutch of baby chicks. 

Though what I’m seriously thinking about is a baby water buffalo for a family in Punjab. Costs $250 (which is a lot for me) but gets matched with an additional $1,000 from government or institutional donors – so a great deal. ~Brian
