Welcome to the WendyKnits Heifer International 2006 Holiday Season Drive! Please consider giving one of the gifts featured in my registry this holiday season. Not only are you helping others around the world, you will be entered in drawings for fabulous prizes!
What is Heifer International? In their own words:
Heifer works to end hunger and poverty, and care for the earth by providing appropriate livestock, training and related services to small-scale farmers and communities worldwide. We care for the earth’s natural resources through training in livestock management, pasture improvement, soil conservation, forestation and recast. Our cornerstone of “passing on the gift,” assures that each participant in the program becomes a donor and gives the animal’s offspring to another family in need. This concepts helps build community and enhances dignity and participation in each project. The families continually give to others ensuring self-sufficiency, one family at a time. We have field offices in major program areas around the world. We work at the grassroots level, sometimes with large networks of local nongovernmental and grassroots organizations. Our field staff is equipped with a variety of skills that help project participants prepare for the challenges and problems they encounter by providing training prior to receiving any animal gift.
