Who is Freida, you ask? Freida is a goat that I (mostly) bought through Heifer International, and she's going to change the lives of her recipients, along with her partner in crime for a child here in the States, Paul-The-Night-Night-Package. Rather than blow that money on things I think I need, I decided to use it on something I know people less fortunate need.
In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, I thought a lot about what I could do. Unlike a national disaster, there are very few concrete things to do to help in this type of situation.
Thanks to the magic of social media, though, I came across this article, and got inspired.
Here's what we can do. We can put a little more love out there in the world, in memory of those lost, one small act at a time. It's what I would want for my child, because acts of kindness last so much longer than just writing a check.
