What do I mean by "Buy a Cat Toy, Save a Life"?

This is two true stories.

Once upon a time there was a family in Oregon who decided to buy a Playful Pancake cat toy instead of going out to dinner. And when they bought the cat toy, they got one goat for a kid in Sudan instead of eating at a restaurant and they made dinner for themselves and that bought one goat.

And another time there was a very sick kid in Darfur (which is in Sudan, in Africa) and her family's only way to save her life was to get her medicine. How in the world would they be able to get the medicine because they were so poor. A goat to the rescue! Luckily they had goats from Kids for Kids, which is the charity I give money to. They took the goat to the market and sold it and got money to buy the medicine. That saved her life.

Goats are so important to people in Sudan because they can save lives in many ways, like getting money for emergencies, and making milk for healthy kids.

And you can help by buying a goat by buying one of my cat toys. That's why I say "Buy a Cat Toy, Save a Life!"
