If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for someone on your Christmas list, you may want to consider giving something that changes lives.

World Vision has a long list of those types of gifts available on its website including goats.

Once a third world family is given a goat, not only do they have a source of milk and meat, they'll also learn animal husbandry and business skills which could become a future source of income.

“This allows you to think globally,” says Darryl Konynenbelt, a representative of World Vision.  “You're a humanitarian, and all it takes is to go online make a purchase.  It's really simple, it just takes a few minutes and you are changing a generation with this gift."

World Vision has more information about the types of gifts that are available for this Christmas and throughout the year.
