Happy Holidays from the YouCaring team!
We're partnering with MAP International to bring health and hope to families in need in more than 100 different countries this holiday season. We're a small team of approximately 20 employees based in San Fransisco, Calif., but also scattered across the U.S. In addition to our donations, we're hoping you'll join us in this mission.
In the spirit of compassion, below are some of the gifts that will make a profound difference in the lives of children and families around the world by providing medicines, preventing disease and promoting health.

Our fundraiser will end on January 1, 2016, and all donations will be sent to MAP International to bring a bright start to the New Year for families all over the world.Clean Water $65.00

Bahhhh Humbug, Goats $75.00
Your gift will provide one goat to a family in need. A healthy goat produces more than 10 times its body weight in milk each year. That's almost 1 ton of milk annually! Your generous gift of a goat for a family in need assures their children will receive important protein that will help them grow up healthier. In addition to producing milk for a family, goats provide a household with income. Families can use goat offspring, extra dairy products and manure for sale or barter.
Your gift will provide two chickens to a family in need. Chickens play a vital role in alleviating hunger, improving health and empowering families in the developing world. One chicken can produce as many as 200 eggs a year; a great source of nutrition and extra income for a family. Honeybees $25.00
Your gift will provide one hive for a family in need. The gift of honeybees can be a tremendous blessing to families in the developing world. Honeybees provide household income through the sales of honey, wax and pollen. Farmers are able to harvest honey during their non-growing season, supplementing their income. Bees can also stimulate the growth of a family's crops through pollination.
Rabbits Breed Hope $20.00 Stock a Mobile Clinic $1,250.00
Your gift of two rabbits can help feed and sustain a family. Rabbits are a valuable source of protein and sustainable income for families. Since rabbits can have as many as six litters a year, they are easily bred and sold. They also boost crop production, providing fertilizer for farmers.
Your gift will stock half of one mobile clinic. Mobile clinics bring health and hope to people in need who live in remote villages and locations lacking services and infrastructure across South America, Asia and Africa. A Christmas gift to help stock mobile clinics will bring essential medicines, supplies, care and education to children and families in underserved communities.MAP International
