A Goat Gathering

When is a holiday party not like a holiday party? When the hostess asks her guests to forgo bringing the usual bottle of wine a and to support the purchase of a  goat for The Heifer Project instead. Hostess Louise Griffin of Raleigh, NC kicked off the first “5 Bucks is Change” event with her usual New Year’s party… but with a twist – come and support the purchase of a Goat!  The guests were so enthusiastic about the idea that instead of just one goat, Louise raised enough money to buy two goats and a hive of bees!  Thanks, Louise for starting the ball rolling and getting folks excited about the idea of combining social events and charitable giving!
