I hope you've enjoyed our Holiday Giving 2011 series, where we've taken a look at many of the livestock and other agricultural inputs Heifer uses as part of our projects worldwide. I thought it might be nice to do a bit of a re-cap, in case you missed one or are just discovering the series.

A heifer provides all 7 Ms: Milk, Manure, Muscle, Meat, Materials, Money and Motivation.
Chickens, geese and ducks provide hundreds of eggs a year.
Rabbits are the gifts that truly multiply.

All of these options, and more, are available in our online Gift Catalog. It's always the right time to give the gift of a better life to families and communities in need. But the holidays really do give us a good excuse, don't they?
