PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The holiday season is coming up fast and Heifer International's 2012 "Most Important Gift Catalog in the World," arriving in homes soon, will make your holiday gift purchases even more special by helping others in need.
At Heifer International, we are committed to long-term solutions for families in our projects and you can read some of their stories in the catalog. People like Nancy Isingoma, who received a dairy cow that provides four gallons of milk daily, some of which the family drinks and the rest is sold at market. Over time, with her increased income, she was able to make improvements to their home, including a sheet metal roof and cement for mortar. Change takes time, but for the Insingoma family, patience and perseverance – and help from Heifer International – enabled them to realize their full potential.
With gifts of livestock and training, family's lives are transformed, moving them from poverty to prosperity. With "Heifers for the Holidays," "Gifts of Goats," or "Pigs as Presents" there are many ways to help provide underserved and hungry families the means to feed and clothe their families.
These are gifts that people don't just want. They are gifts they need. What better way to honor someone you love than to give a gift of transformation in his or her name? Or to include a Heifer gift in your own wish list? Tell your friends and family you have enough, that this year you want to be part of making the world better for others.
Be on the lookout for the catalog, and if you don't receive one, call us at 800-422-0473 and ask for one. Or shop the online catalog at www.heifer.org/catalog.
This year make a difference in our small world—give or ask for a gift that will change a family's life for the better, forever. Now that's a true gift!
