BENEFITING: Heifer International

EVENT DATE: Dec 02, 2010

THE STORY:

In honor of Vanita Morant's retirement from Pittsburgh Public Schools, and in recognition of her caring and kind ways, please contribute to our efforts to sponsor a Heifer International Knitter’s Basket (see http://www.heifer.org/site/c.edJRKQNiFiG/b.6329407/?msource=QTAK1020024 ) in Vanita's name, which would basically provide a llama, an alpaca, a sheep, and an angora rabbit to a struggling family to ensure they are able to sustain themselves and their community. If everyone chipped in $10 or so, we could make a gift in Vanita’s honor for either a whole Knitter’s Gift Basket ($480) or several shares ($48 per share) toward a Knitter’s Gift Basket, depending on how much is raised. Heck, we might even give TWO Knitter's Gift Baskets, 'cause that's just how much we love Vanita. Vanita is a fabulous knitter, not just a fabulous person, and a long-time caring donor to those in need. Help us honor the marvelous Vanita and wish her well in her new life!

For those of you who are not familiar with Heifer International, I’ve included some information below. This is one of the most highly regarded and effective nonprofits in the world, and it has won several major awards over the years. Heifer seeks to end world hunger by empowering families and communities with real tools to sustain themselves and their neighbors. It is a truly wonderful thing, and assists approximately 287,000 families directly each year worldwide through their community development model with gifts of animals. Another 423,000 more families receive special training that includes sustainable faring techniques. These then wave out to community members—about another 812,000—who benefit from their neighbors resources and knowledge. This is one reason why the Heifer model is so very powerful.

Ms. Vanita - You were the first person I met in this building and your warmth made me want to come work here-and your good word in to the Superintendent probably got me the job :). On good days I could count on you to smile when I visited, and on rough days, I could count on you to make me smile. Thank you for everything! 6 years ago
