Hold the holiday ham & go for the whole pig

COCONUT CREEK, FL - (December 16, 2008) - A Florida-based charity has some unique last-minute gift ideas including pigs, goats, donkeys and baby chicks.

Food For The Poor, the nation’s largest international aid agency is out with its annual online gift catalog featuring special gifts that do double duty - letting the recipient know you didn’t forget them while helping a truly needy family in the Caribbean or Latin America.

Some of the items - including the three little pigs - help destitute families gain self-sustenance through farming and animal husbandry. Other items include a whole years’ worth of school supplies for a child, nutrition-giving fruit trees, water pumps, 100 pounds of rice, complete homes for a family, and more.

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

Food For The Poor is the 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 17 countries in the Caribbean and Latin America.
