Anyone sitting there scratching your head about those last few “hard to shop for” relatives and friends? Yeah, me neither.
Well, hypothetically, if I were sitting here doing last minute shopping, I’d seriously think about supporting Oxfam, an international relief and development organization that creates lasting solutions to poverty; hunger; and injustice, if for no other reason than I can gift this:
“No need to feel like a stinker when you give manure to a loved one…” These marketing geniuses have one upped Santa Claus’ coal in the stocking by giving shoppers the opportunity to purchase a donation of manure, which Oxfam gets to impoverished farmers who need it most. (Organic manure increases crop yields and is cheaper, greener, and safer than chemical fertilizers.) This is a fun, and reasonably priced gift to pass along to your uncle, boss or employees (it’s better than a year’s subscription to “jelly of the month” club!), or at those annoying, yet endearing, white elephant gift exchange parties.
