We've had a good year, so we donated some of the money we made to Heifer International.
This year, we bought a honey bee hive for a family of farmers.
Heifer International does great work:
The core of our model is Passing on the Gift. This means families share the training they receive, and pass on the first female offspring of their livestock to another family. This extends the impact of the original gift, allowing a once impoverished family to become donors and full participants in improving their communities.
The goal of every Heifer project is to help families achieve self-reliance. We do this by providing them the tools they need to sustain themselves, and it's thanks to the generosity of donors like you.
Running 216 has been a lot of fun, and with any luck at all, next year, somebody is getting a camel. Or at least something in the vertebrate phylum.
