In honor of Professor Tolkien, why not send some Trees?
> can tell you how to
send a gift of trees or seedlings to needy places overseas, and get a gift
card for the person you are honoring.
From everything I know this seems a worthy organization. I am pleased to see
them adding items like Trees and Bees, with which you can honor your
vegetarian friends. Though of course a lot of the heifers and goats and
water buffaloes they send are used for milk and other purposes, not meat.
$25 gets you one-tenth of a water buffalo! :)
