Caring Causes: Heifer International When Cows Fly

Heifer International, the global hunger and poverty nonprofit, invites supporters of its work to join in When Cows Fly, a new online portal that allows participants, donors and others to share their stories of engagement. 
The new online experience allows everyone who believes in Heifer International’s goal of ending hunger and empowering families to become part of the online community that “gives wing” to more cows, more goats and chickens and pigs. When Cows Fly provides first-person storytelling opportunities—a chance to express what it means to give or to receive. Each story can be amplified further through users’ social networks.

Heifer International works with communities around the world, including the U.S., to move families out of poverty. It provides livestock and other agricultural resources, as well as technical and non-technical training that help participants become self-sufficient. Since 1944, the organization has benefitted more than 94 million people.

When Cows Fly allows users to contribute their own stories or photos and explore the work of Heifer International around the globe. The platform creates a culture committed to creating greater opportunities for the struggling families who need Heifer International’s help. It’s a place where all people can connect, join in and share their thoughts about and reasons for supporting founder Dan West’s outlandish dream—a dream that will end poverty and hunger forever through shared passion and commitment.

Every voice is important–from donors, volunteers, congregations and schools to project participants and partners. Each story connects one more person to the solution to the scourges of hunger, poverty and environmental degradation. Each story reminds us that we can make a difference.
