Heifer International thanks donors for their contributions LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Dec. 30, 2011) – Nearly two million people across the globe will be given the hope of a better life and the dignity of self-reliance thanks to the generous donations to Heifer International this past holiday season. We at Heifer are grateful for those donations and for the opportunity to spread our work into new villages, towns and cities to help even more.
This New Year, resolve to give a family hope with a Heifer International animal LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Dec. 29, 2011) – A New Year’s resolution can provide the motivation to start anew, with a fresh outlook and goals. This year, harness that hope and impart it to someone who really needs it, with a gift of a chicken, llama, or a cow.
Heifer International kicks off new initiative in Appalachia and Arkansas LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Dec. 19, 2011) – When Americans think of hunger, they often think of swollen bellies and jutting ribs in countries far away. But Heifer International knows that malnutrition is often right next door. That's why Heifer, the global nonprofit known for gifts of livestock and training, is starting a bold new initiative right here in the United States.
Investing in a family’s future provides help for the family, tax savings for you LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 14, 2011) — Tax season is still several months away, but now is the time to think about making a charitable donation to claim a deduction on your taxes for 2011.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – This year, don't just give the gift of a cow, goat, pig, camel or other animal from Heifer International's colorful catalog, ask for a similar gift yourself. There's joy in giving, but there's joy in receiving, too, especially considering the difference the gift you give or receive will make in a family's life.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Some may see the value of an alternative gift as mostly symbolic, but for the families that partner with Heifer International, the value is real and tangible, from the steady supply of milk from their cow or goat to the fruits and vegetables on their tables to the higher income they earn by selling their excess crops and goods.
Heifer International alternative gifts provide hope, opportunity for a lifetime LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—This season there is an alternative to gifts that are meaningless and quickly forgotten: a goat, a cow or a flock of geese. These alternative choices from Heifer International add a new dimension to giving, especially when the recipient promises to pass on their animal's first female offspring to a neighbor in need, multiplying the impact and the benefit.
Heifer International, families we help, depend on youth’s ingenious generosity LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Dec. 01, 2011) – When it comes to children’s ingenuity to raise money for a cared-about cause, nothing is off limits. At Heifer International, children are among our most generous givers. A scan of news stories proves that—a kiss for a cow, lemonade for a llama, car washes for water buffalo, read-a-thons for rabbits.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Nov. 29, 2011) - There’s a reason that animal gifts are popular right now. The idea is fun; the animal is cute, easy to give as an alternative gift and is readily available from several organizations that all tout it as a means to help impoverished communities become self-sustaining. But it takes more than an animal, and only one organization works to that end—Heifer International.
'Most Important Gift Catalog in the World' offers meaningful gift-giving options LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Nov. 28, 2011) – With Christmas fast approaching, keep your eyes on your mailbox for some gifts that may appear to be last minute, but most certainly are life changing. Heifer International's 2011 "Most Important Gift Catalog in the World" can give holiday cheer to a loved one at the same time it gives hope for a better life to someone half a world away.
