They provide cows, sheep, goats, llamas, chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits…the animals are given to poor families worldwide who can then use the livestock for food and income. Additionally, each family is expected to pass on some of the offspring to other needy families.
I think it’s really cool that you can buy (donate, I suppose) a flock of chicks for $20. If you’re having trouble thinking of what to get me for Christmas, might I suggest that you put $5 toward my upcoming purchase from Heifer International? It seems like such a worthwhile effort, and honestly, I don’t need a lot of things this year (the Bwun, however, is another story!).
Think about it!
