Shownotes

with guest Michael Prins of Food for the Hungry Canada.

It’s the time of year where charity Christmas gift catalogues find their way to your mailboxes and inboxes—but how do these practical, and hopefully meaningful, shopping options actually work? When you buy a pig for your mom, will a piglet wearing a red bow arrive on her doorstep Christmas morning? What happens to a community in Burundi if somebody suddenly donates 5,000 goats?

In this episode of the Ending Poverty Together Podcast, Mike Prins, Marketing and Communications Manager at Food for the Hungry Canada, has all these answers and more for you! Listen to discover how a gift of a cow or a rabbit hops from the pages of the Gifts for Change Gift Guide right to the homes of families in need. Mike shares personal stories of impact sparked by real Canadians through the Gift Guide, and yes! He’ll even answer your question about the 5,000 goats.
