THE STORY:

Earlier this month I launched my first crowdrise charity campaign to purchase a llama for families in need through heifer.org. I'm happy to announce that we met the fundraising goal early and our first llama is on it's way!  NOW, instead of birthday presents for my upcoming party, I am asking for you to please make a donation here. I'm trying to raise a total of $150 to purchase ANOTHER llama.  Thanks in advance for your help. Here's more from heifer.org:

"At home in rough, mountainous areas of Latin America, llamas are a blessing to families with limited pasture land because they can eat the scrub vegetation that other domesticated animals won't eat. Llama droppings help fertilize topsoil — improving crops and reducing erosion.

Women weave their llamas' fleece into warm clothing to wear or sell. They load them up with goods for market and trek with them across rugged slopes at high altitudes. As they travel, llamas' padded feet don't damage the fragile terrain and their selective browsing doesn't destroy sparse vegetation.

Llamas and their kin, the alpaca, provide Heifer families with invaluable sources of transportation, income and wool, which is prized for making blankets, ponchos, carpet and rope."
