Christmas spirit, Irish style

Over at blogh an seanchai, our Irish friend has a very good idea for what to get the person in your family that doesn't need any more crap for Christmas:
So why not tell your friends that you want the gift of a pig, or a hen, or a cow. You buy a voucher for the livestock unit, you give it to the object of your affections. The charity sends the livestock unit to a family in Africa so that they can become self-sustaining. That family gives the first off-spring from their livestock unit to the family next door. You don' t have to rent extra storage for the bluetooth-enabled juicer that is exactly like the last juicer you wish you could throw out.
I like a juicer, but a cow is better. Read the whole thing.
