LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 5, 2012) – Father’s Day gift-giving isn’t easy for the dad who seems to have everything. (Does he really want another tie?) But shopping for Dad doesn’t need to be difficult, if you remember that what he really wants is a reminder of the skills and values he imparted to his children. That’s why the gift of self-reliance for a family in need, through Heifer International, is so special.
Heifer International animal gifts are unique, because they help to bring a family out of poverty and into self-sufficiency – for good. That sounds like something that would make Dad proud! Heifer International gives both livestock and training to families in hunger, and helps them start small businesses to sell the extra milk, eggs and other goods their animals produce.
Fathers take care of their kids, and Father’s Day is the time to let him know how much his attention meant to you. With an attractive honor card, you can let your father know how the gift in his name will create hope and opportunity for a family somewhere in the world.
Shoppers spent $1.3 billion on electronics for dads. But how many of those gifts really touched the hearts of the recipients? When searching for an eloquent Father’s Day gift, it’s time to consider giving not just another thing, but a meaningful contribution.
Heifer International gifts can even help fathers stay with their families. In countries like China, Armenia and Honduras, rural men must often migrate to find work because they can no longer support their family with their meager resources. Heifer International animal projects require the entire family to work together to turn the animals into a money-making venture.
This Father’s Day, give a simple but impactful gift that will delight your dad with its far-reaching effects. Visit www.heifer.org/father to see how to give.
