Here's how it works:
Participants have the opportunity to give a heifer, llama, pig, goat, sheep, rabbit, honeybees, chickens etc. Of course, these gifts are at different price points, so the choice is yours as to how much you would like to donate. More than likely, the gift of a heifer catches your eye. The gift of a heifer is $500 or a share of a heifer is $50. As the program describes, a cow will provide milk to the family in need, as well as their neighbors, and they will have excess to sell, as well. The sale of the surplus milk earns money for school fees, medicine, clothing and home improvements. The protein in milk can transform sick, malnourished children into strong kids. Finally, because a healthy cow can produce a cow each year, the gift will be passed on to help an entire community.
While celebrities continue to show their support of HSUS and PETA, I'm going to give to an organization that truly counts. Heifer International celebrates the gift of livestock and supports humanity through its charitable work. Now that's a gift worth giving! What do you think about this program. You can learn more about it by checking out their website.
