I know its early, but before you blow all your Christmas shopping money this holiday season, take a moment and consider sending some of that moola to Heifer International. Heifer’s mission is to bring an end to world hunger by helping people obtain a sustainable source of food and income. The concept in a nutshell is that Heifer makes a gift of livestock to one individual in a community. They teach that individual sustainable agriculture (how to breed for quality, how to care for the livestock, etc). In return, that individual agrees to share the offspring of the gift animals along with their knowledge, resources and skills with others in need.
If there is one thing I could give to the struggling people of the world it would be self-reliance.
Everyone deserves the dignity of providing for themselves and their families. That’s why I support Heifer International.”
