Forget the Flowers, Say It with Goats

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (May 5, 2008) – Mom deserves a new kid for Mother’s Day.  And while he may not look like anyone else in the family, and he might drool a bit, he certainly won’t spend all day in front of the TV and he’ll always be on time for dinner. 

Food For The Poor, a Florida-based nonprofit is offering special gifts for that special mom – including goats galore (kids), bundles of baby chicks, plenty of pigs, marching bands, fruit trees, rice and beans, and a whole lot more. 

The Food For The Poor gift catalog is filled with page after page of heartfelt gift ideas that will let mom know that she raised you right –that she raised you to care about others – while still remembering her on Mother’s Day.

Every item in the catalog will benefit poor children and their families in the Caribbean or Latin America.  A single goat can provide enough milk and cheese to help feed a hungry family for a lifetime.  Baby chicks allow a destitute family to have an easy source of protein from the eggs and an extra source of income from selling extra eggs.  For just $12.00, you can buy enough food to feed an entire family for a month, or you can spend a little more and feed a child for a whole year.  And, if you’re feeling particularly generous, you can get the woman who told you to always clean your plate an entire tractor-trailer full of food – enough to feed thousands of starving people like those currently suffering in Haiti.

Every item in the Food For The Poor gift catalog is available on line at  It’s a secure site and every item purchased comes with a gift certificate that you can give to mom to let her know how much you care –about her and about others.

Food For The Poor is the second largest international relief and development organization in the nation.  With more than 96% of all donations going directly to programs that help those in need, Food For The Poor provides nourishing food, safe shelter, necessary medical care, educational materials, support for orphans and the aged, and much more to the poorest of the poor in 16 countries in the Caribbean and Latin America.
