For Christmas this year, considering giving a goat. Or a flock of chickens. Or medical care for infants, or education for AIDS orphans, or a well to provide clean water for an entire village. Episcopal Life Weekly bulletin inserts for November 30 highlight the "Gifts for Life" program offered by Episcopal Relief and Development. Church members and others can provide a wide variety of animals, supplies and tools -- and the training needed to use them -- to people in areas plagued by drought, war, famine or poverty. Donors can also opt to donate money to train AIDS prevention workers, or for mosquito nets to prevent malaria, or one of many other gifts.
