Holiday Giving

Today I sent $250 to Heifer International. My sister and I pooled our money to buy a water buffalo. Now some family in SE Asia will soon have an animal that will provide milk, work, fertilizer and more water buffaloes if it is a cow. This will mean a whole new world to this family as their job of subsistence farming will suddenly get a lot easier.

This is a Christmas tradition I have with my sister that I hope we continue for a long time.

Heifer International is one of the coolest ways to give.

How wonderful, I didn't even know about Heifer. I too am about to give. I think all over on the Market Farm Forum should know about Heifer. And any other place the word can be spread. They have a great site. Thanks for posting. CF
