Sorta last minute Holiday gift
« on: 22 Dec 2010, 00:31 »

So, I left my uncle's Christmas present to the almost last minute. He's a hard-line, smug atheist type who prefers his $30 dollar Kris Kringle gift go to charity. Any ideas where I could buy a chook for an impoverished 3rd world community or something.

They normally have people trying to push those kind of donations at the big shopping centres. Maybe try braving one of those places?


I am having trouble buying presents for a certain person and am running out of time, so we are going to go shopping together after christmas to try and find something. A good present might just be me not complaining about how hard he is to shop for for a while.

dude buy him a goat through oxfam, the money doesn't represent the price of a goat or like the cost of oxfam doing business as embodied by a goat, it straight up buys a literal goat, some dude even made a documentary where he went and found his goat

Heifer (sp? like a cow) International does this too - you can choose your farm animal. My mom's family got together and sent an ox to Thailand this year.

My uncle went through some charity a few years ago and donated a wheelchair to a kid in a 3rd world country.

I wish I could remember what it was called.

Wait so you're letting something that happened 10 years ago ruin your quality of life? What are you, America? :psyduck:
