Goats Are Great for Families
The gift of a dairy goat represents a lasting, meaningful way for you to help a little boy or girl on the other side of the world.
Goats can thrive in extreme climates and on poor, dry land by eating grass and leaves. The gift of a dairy goat can supply a family with up to several quarts of nutritious milk a day - a ton of milk a year. Extra milk can be sold or used to make cheese, butter or yogurt. Families learn to use goat manure to fertilize gardens.
Goats often have two or three kids a year making it easy for Heifer recipients to pass on the gift of a goat to another family in need. This great investment allows our partners to lift themselves out of poverty by starting small dairies that earn money for food, health care and education.

New York – eBay today opened its first pop-up store, a 5,500-square-foot shop in midtown Manhattan dubbed “eBay @ 57th St.” Located at 57th Street and 5th Avenue, the store offers samples of 400 products, which shoppers then purchase online from eBay sellers using touch-screen kiosks or eBay’s iPhone app. eBay’s trend experts will be in-store to offer advice, and eBay will have personal shoppers on hand as well.
The store also will feature on display one-of-a-kind items including from designers and celebrities that will be sold to benefit charity. In addition, all online purchases made at the pop-up shop will be matched dollar-for-dollar by eBay, up to $200,000.
The store will operate through Nov. 29, although it will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. Hours 10 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Sundays.
On Black Friday, Nov. 27, doors will open at 7 a.m.
