The Gift of Vision Simplify: Usability
Dec 20

It’s that time of year again, to give the gift of goat. The gift of what? Yes, the gift of goat.

Greenville’s Charles and Gillaine Warne have a mission, as part of a joint effort of Christ Church Episcopal and the Greenville Rotary Club, to raise the awareness of the plight of the Haitian people-one of the poorest people in the world.

[Quick Side Note: Charles was kidnapped on one of his trips to Haiti in November of 2006. He was released the day after.]

Haitians suffer from a 2/3 unemployment rate and are sustained on less than $1 per day. To put it in perspective for Americans, the Warnes draw our attention to this fact:

-If a Haitian family has a goat-yes, a goat-they are RICH.

A goat costs $150, and through the efforts of the Warnes and the organizations involved with the mission, you can give the gift of a goat-or the gift of tremendous prosperity-for less than, dare I say, the cost of your Starbucks Latte per day?

Get into the Christmas spirit and make a Haitian family’s year. Feel good about gifting them a goat this year.
