It’s kinda like Farmville only better, because the animal you take a share in can help nourish a family for a long time. It was hard to decide between the trio of rabbits or a sheep, but a decision had to be made. Thanks to Sarah B. for turning me on to Heifer International. I am putting my donation towards a share of a sheep.
Heifer International’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth. By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, we empower them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope.
With gifts of livestock and training, they help families improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. They refer to the animals as “living loans” because in exchange for their livestock and training, families agree to give one of its animal’s offspring to another family in need. It’s called Passing on the Gift – a cornerstone of their mission that creates an ever-expanding network of hope and peace.

Amount Donated: $10 (for the share of a sheep)
