BENEFITING: Heifer International
EVENT DATE: Jan 03, 2015
Curtis has requested a pig for his birthday. But since we don't live on a farm, we thought it would be better to get a pig for someone who actually needs it. Heifer International works to end hunger and poverty by providing livestock and training that small-scale farmers need to become self-reliant. One pig costs $120 and can produce up to 16 piglets a year, which can be sold to pay for food, health care and education. But most importantly, this pig and the training provided by Heifer International can be like a "living savings account" for an impoverished family by providing a steady income. Our goal is for enough donations to gift 2 pigs ($240), which would make Curtis squeal with delight!
***Since we have such an amazing response and have met our initial goal, let's see if we can raise $480 to donate 4 pigs!***
