SPOKANE, Wash. - Volunteer teams from the Wishing Star Foundation delivered a special surprise to KHQ's Stephanie Vigil. A one month old goat named "Thor."
It was part of the 7th annual "Send a Friend a Goat" event that has now been extended to include Monday, April 30th.
Spokane community members have the opportunity to play a great practical joke by having a real baby goat delivered to offices or meetings. A $50 donation to Wishing Star will send a goat to an unsuspecting friend or co-worker on the day of choice. The recipient will be asked to make a donation to Wishing Star to pay for the removal of the goat.
Last year Wishing Star was able to raise over $20,000 through 'goating,' with five to six goats traveling to offices throughout Spokane each day. Wishing Star granted 32 wishes to local children in 2011. The cost of an average wish is $5,000.
