Christmas jumpers have become so popular in recent Years over the festive period, but this Christmas even the cows have joined the fashion herd thanks to UK charity Send a Cow. The charity's ambassador Gloria the cow; a purebred Jersey from Devon, models an 'amoosing' Christmas jumper to help raise awareness of Send a Cow's aim of selling 20,000 festive gifts that will make a difference to poverty-stricken African families.
Gloria's Christmas jumper has been created to showcase the charity's latest altruistic Christmas gifts catalogue. Send a Cow's Christmas catalogue contains gifts that make a difference to poverty-stricken families in seven African countries. Gifts range from Local Cow (£205), which provides a farming family with milk and manure; Little Donkey (£9) which helps families take good care of their four-legged friends who transport farm produce to market; and Tip Tap (£10), a bestseller which improves hygiene levels in areas where soap and water are luxuries. Send A Cow have a huge range of charity gifts from £5 on-wards - a little really does go a long way in this Charity and will really improve the lives of those suffering in poverty in Africa.
Send a Cow was started by West Country farmers 25 years ago and has transformed the lives of over one million people. Send a Cow works with families in Africa, teaching them the skills they need to build lives free from poverty and hunger. By providing training, livestock, seeds and support, the charity helps create stronger communities for the future.
Simon Barnes, CEO of Send a Cow states; "this year we've taken the idea of the quirky Christmas jumper one step further, to encourage people to think differently about the gifts they buy this Christmas. Instead of buying chocolate for a friend, why not buy something unusual - for as little as £5 you will greatly improve the lives of poverty-stricken families in Africa. This is our 13th year of the Christmas catalogue and over the years we've raised over eight million pounds to help poor families. We really hope that you will support us this year by buying a gift, to help us change even more lives this Christmas and beyond".
Send a Cow's Christmas catalogue is available in print and online. You can find out more information on the cause by visiting their website www.sendacowgifts.org.uk or call 01225 874222.
