Things you can adopt

The season of giving 

It's that time of year when we are reminded to give, to reflect back on how fortunate we are and to say thanks.

Each year I make sure I take an extra grocery bag for food to the food bank, buy mittens for our warmth tree at church and usually take part in our adopt-a-family giving a work. They are small things, but I know they are making a difference to someone.

This year if you are looking for a twist on giving why not adopt-a-teacher? The Animal Agriculture Alliance has created the adopt-a-teacher program to help educate teachers and students about animal agriculture and issues like animal rights vs. animal welfare. Two subjects that greatly need to be discussed considering many teachers didn't grow up in agriculture setting and may not have all the answers their students are looking for.

For $35 the Alliance will send the teacher or school of your choice a Resource Kit. The kit includes "Myths and Facts of Animal Agriculture,a "Farm Facts Highlights" poster and "Farm Facts Highlights" booklet, along with carious other educational materials about animal agriculture. You can access more information on how you can adopt-a-teacher and share agriculture's story here
