Oxfam Gets Your Goat, Now Return The Favor

Oxfam works to end poverty by providing in-need families with animals, plants and skill sets necessary to empower them through sustainable jobs.
This holiday season the organization wants to remind supporters just how chic buying goats, chickens and other livestock really is:

It’s a tongue-in-cheek pitch, but it’s no joke. When you visit Oxfam America Unwrapped, for instance, you can purchase real goat for a real family in need.

One of this season’s “it” gifts! Hot off the runway: a gift that’s both sporty and serious.

This holiday season, don’t kid around: Discover the beauty of giving with The Oxfam Collection, 2010!
