When the word global and hunger join together the mere idea seems overwhelming.Â How canÂ we truly make a difference?Â Like any complex or dynamic challenge, the solution lies in baby steps; one step at a time.
How many gifts do you purchase for friends, family or celebrations every year?Â Imagine if for every one of those occasions you gave aÂ gift that not onlyÂ helps a struggling family but multiplies!
Through Heifer International, you can buy a cow,Â lamb, Llama, water buffalo, goat, pig, honey bees, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits,Â and most importantly, HOPE for families around the world.Â Â Their online gift catalogue has numerous options to fit every budget but the impact on the recipients will be priceless.
“A good dairy cow can produce four gallons of milk a day – enough for a family to drink and share with neighbors…Better still, every gift multiplies, as the animal’s first offspring is passed on to another family.”
Next to cows, sheep are one of the most important animals a family can own as they provide wool and meat.Â Struggling families can use the wool for clothing or sell it for extra income.Â ForÂ $120 you can give an entire sheep but if that isn’t possible for only $10 you can give a share of sheep.
Â Besides their gift catalogue, there are other waysÂ youÂ can get involved in Heifer InternationalÂ
Or, how about helping to “pass it on”?
