All I want for Christmas...is a Goat!

Lately I've been asked a time or two, "What do you want for Christmas?" My standard answer, "Nothing." I have more than I need. I am very thankful, truly, completely. I have much to be thankful for. Today, I know what I want and for any interested, here's my Christmas list. (Click the links...)
  1. A goat
  2. Clean water
  3. A hospital
  4. A new bike
  5. A soccer ball
  6. Milk
  7. A doctor
  8. To learn to read and write
  9. Medicine
  10. Surgery
If you clicked a link or two you already know, but my list of wishes are not for me. Give a gift to people around the world through Samaritan's Purse. The mission of Samaritan's Purse...

Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan's Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God's love through His Son, Jesus Christ. The organization serves the Church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I have a great desire to impact the world beyond my immediate reach and this is way that we can all be involved. If you're getting a gift for someone who has everything, consider helping one who really needs it in their name. Let them know you purchased them a goat for a good cause!

Make it a truly merry Christmas for someone who can never pay you back!


  1. We do Samaritan's Purse each year, giving blankets and food and such through donation under our family member's names. It's a great idea, especially in these times when Christmas has shifted into "I want more stuff" mode.

  2. great idea Mike thanks for gathering the information.


Thanks so much!
