I wanted to buy a heifer or a pig, but my accountant advised against it. Maybe next year. What am I talking about? A great site set up to allow you to purchase livestock and other goods that help families around the world to subsist and survive: Heifer.org Buy a pig for $150 or whole arc full of animals for just $5000, plus, it’s all tax deductible (since it *is* about that time). I plan on doing this every year. All contributions go directly to the families in need, as all administrative costs are covered using alternate methods of funding.
