Khuki with her goat
#GivingTuesday, November 29

Shoreline's World Concern is doubling all gifts given through the Global Gift Guide on Tuesday. 

That means when you give a goat to someone living in extreme poverty, two goats will be given!

You’ll double your impact and help twice as many people in need, thanks to special matching grants.

Can the gift of a goat really change someone’s life?

Khuki, a young mother of three living in Bangladesh, is living proof that it can.

Like many women in Bangladesh, Khuki was married at just 15. Her husband abused her and left her for another woman when she was pregnant with her third child. She was desperate enough to go door to door begging for help.

That’s when Khuki was introduced to World Concern, and received a goat that changed her life. She began selling the milk, and earned enough to buy several more goats. She now has a steady income to feed her children and even send them to school.

“The support has opened new doors for me and my family,” said Khuki, who was recently able to build a small house for herself and her children—something she never thought possible.

And to think it all started with a goat!

Now through midnight Tuesday, November 29, your gift will multiply when you give a goat to someone like Khuki — changing not one life but two this #GivingTuesday!
