Sustainable charity on Oprah
In case you're looking for a good sustainble charity to support, or if you're planning ahead for Christmas gifts, or both - look no further!
Heifer International is a lovely charity that I've been supporting for years. Their projects help end hunger and save the Earth by teaching and empowering people around the world with initiatives in sustainable farming, animal management techniques, gender equality, HIV/AIDS, microenterprise, and urban agriculture.
As for the Christmas angle, you can choose items from their online gift catalog to send in honor of those hard-to-buy-for loved ones.
And right now there's a "double your gift" project for farmers in Honduras.
Charity Navigator gives Heifer International 3 of 4 stars.
Want more? Watch the Oprah Winrey show on Thursday October 1st, which was inspired by The New York Times best-selling book _Half the Sky_ by Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas Kristof and his wife, Sheryl WuDunn.
