I'm a big proponent of thinking outside the box when it comes to gift giving for Christmas! About 10 years ago I began giving Heifer International presents to my siblings and parents. Then my Grandmother took over the annual tradition- and each year it was a fun surprise to see what livestock we "got". MINT- a very cool design blog I follow, posted a fantastic gift guide this week with different ways we can help others. Ranging from $12 art supplies to training a midwife for $150! Check it out HERE.
