All I want for Christmas is…

In case you’re wondering, this is what I want. A good alternative to rampant consumerism. Anyone know of other orgs that do this kind of thing?

    my fave is heifer international. a few years ago i “gave” my nephews the honor of giving a hive of honeybees via heifer. yeah, apparently my nephews would rather play with legos than the certificate i gave them stating hat they had generously donated a honeybee hive to a needy family. i tried again a couple of years later with a few shares of a llama for them to donate — figuring that llamas are cool and all. yeah, that didn’t really do it for them either. maybe it’s a better gift idea for adults. but i’m with you all the way on the anti-consumerism idea, m.

    Seriously, kids, how selfish are they? heh. kidding (but not really; adults are the same they just hide it better…) Dude, I’d take a llama anytime!! Woohoo! Honeybees are a pretty cool idea, too…
