Gifts for the Philanthropist
NPR membership prices vary depending on your local station (a WHYY membership is just $5/month), and members get access to special panels and events. Plus, you might even shorten the current member drive in your city.
FARMS FOR FAMILIES:
Heifer International works with people in extreme poverty across the globe by donating animals (a heifer, for example, gives the family a constant supply of milk and the opportunity to pass on calves to another family in need). They also have smaller donations that make great stocking stuffers: Ducks, chicken, geese, and honeybees all come in under $50, and you’ll get bonus points for including an on-theme gift (like a honey jar) with the accompanying certificate in a loved one’s stocking.
