I have no specific advice to add. I just want to say, hats off to you, man.

Your money would be put to better use at Feed the Children. 91.5% of FTC funds go toward program costs as compared to only 71.7% with Heifer. Then again, it would be fun to purchase a water buffalo for someone.

cubs-

Where are you getting that stat? I'm always curious about what percentage a donation actually reaches the target.

For instance, I love the idea of "Adopt-a-Minefield" to help with mine removal, but as a UN organization, I wonder about the possible bloat.

A couple of us pooled our money together last year and donated 1 goat and 2 chickens. Not sure why we picked those but we had our reasons at the time. Seems like a fine organization and it gives me a warm fuzzy to think I just fed a family for a lifetime.

I've given chickens to an orphanage before, so I vote chickens.

This can feed a family for a month.
