Caring Causes: Heifer International

The holiday season is quickly approaching and we all know how hard it can be to find that perfect gift. This year, you can go beyond typical sharing and caring for the holidays by looking into an alternative giving option. 
Heifer International is a nonprofit community development organization dedicated to helping end hunger and poverty while working to protect the environment and care for the Earth. Heifer provides living gifts of area-appropriate livestock and training in environmentally sound agricultural practices so that families in need can lift themselves out of poverty and become self-reliant.  Every family that receives an animal gift agrees to pass on the first female offspring of that animal and training in its care to another family in need, creating an ever-widening web of hope and change.
When you give a gift from Heifer International’s Most Important Gift Catalog in the World, you’re giving something big― the tools for a family to lift themselves out of hunger and poverty and into self-reliance.

Gifts like this create a lasting change in someone’s life. It becomes more than a present; it’s a gift for a better tomorrow.
