BENEFITING: Heifer International
Hi everyone since ending my internship I’ve been unemployed (to finish out my last semester) and that makes it difficult to make an annual charitable gift. So this year I’m trying to raise the money for my annual gift through “crowd funding”. My charity of choice is Heifer International, it’s not the most well-known charity but I think it does the best work. Heifer international wants to end world hunger and poverty, not by giving money and food, but by providing training and a source of income for families of improvised areas. By giving remote areas livestock and training they are helping families provide for themselves and build their communities. And here’s the kicker. Each recipient, in order to participate, must agree to gift away one or more of the offspring of whatever animal they were given. This truly is a gift that keeps on giving. They’ve taken the old saying; “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, but teach a man to fish and he eats for a life time” and they have run with it! So please help me help Heifer International improve the lives of families all over the world. Make a donation here. I hope to raise enough money to give a few honey bees, and maybe a flock of chicks and some fruit trees. So please make a donation today.
