Give a cow for Christmas

I’m a little late on my annual intention to spread the word about Heifer International . . . but here it is, nonetheless. Heifer International seeks to overcome hunger and poverty by working with communities to establish strong, local, agriculture-based economies. How can you help? By donating the funds to provide a family with a heifer (hence the name), goat, bees, ducks, even a water buffalo! You can give the gift on the part of a friend or family member, or simply for your own sake – and by doing so, you equip the recipient of your gift to pass on a gift to someone else. Passing on the gift is central to Heifer International’s mission; as one person or family gets on their feet, they can then offer a hand to someone else.
What kind of giving, this Christmas season, could be better? I encourage you to look at Heifer International’s website, and consider giving the gift that keeps on giving.
Here’s a link to the site: Heifer International
Have you ever given or received a Heifer International gift? I’d love to hear about it!
