A bunch of cows are heard;

A bunch of geese are a gaggle; and

A bunch of pigs are a drift and/or drove.

Do you see where I’m going with this?  Or, do you get my drift?

Recently, due to swine flu we lost all 100 pigs on the grounds of the Mbiriizi Advanced Primary School where Sylvia’s Children go to learn and (some) live.

As a result, we are hosting a DONATE A PIG campaign to help repopulate the school’s resources.  For only $50 you can purchase a pig and name it.  The school will be the recipient of your charitable gift and will raise the pig and then sell it to a local farmer who can start his own pig business.  This will allow the school to teach self-reliance to the students as well as an income.

Two pigs have already been donated and they have been named Stillwater and Charlotte…we are in need of approximately 85 more.

Might you be interested in donating a pig to the schoolchildren?  And, coming up with a wonderful name?  Also, if interested, we can send you a certificate of your new pig ownership with your chosen name on it.  Need an extra gift this holiday season?  Would gifting a pig be an idea you are interested?

If you wish to donate a pig, click this LINK  to click on the orange DONATE SAFELY WITH PAYPAL button and PayPal will automatically link you to Sylvia’s Children’s account.  After you make your monetary donation, you can ADD A NOTE with the number of pigs you wish to donate and the name of your pig(s).  Also, please add an email address if you would like to receive a certificate for display or gift-giving purposes.  It’s that simple.

Webale Krismasi!

…which means Merry Christmas in Lugandan.
