Every year for Christmas I donate a sum of money in each of my family members names to various charities. I received a flyer in the mail for a charity which purchases livestock (like cows, goats, pigs, lambs, etc.) for people so they can get continued use from the charitable gift instead of just money to buy something. I think this is a great idea, but I’m always weary of organizations that I don’t know much about because there are so many scams out there or organizations that say they’re helping but really only a small percentage of the donations make it to the people in need. Does anyone know any reputable organizations that do this? The flyer that I received is from Heifer International. I’d like to hear if anyone has an experience with this or another charity that does something similar though before shelling out the dough! Thanks!
