Heifer International Fundraiser!

This is the second time I've participated in Nathan Bransford's Annual Heifer International Fundraiser.  Yay! 

Heifer International is a terrific organization that I wholeheartedly support!


 

Heifer International helps people by giving them animals, such as sheep, cows, pigs, bees, etc., so they will have an independent livelihood. Rather than helping folks with a one-time gift, Heifer International gives them a sustainable means to change their lives.  If you would like to find out more about this great organization, please go here:

Nathan's blog is here.  If you would like to join the fundraiser, you can sign up there!  Also, have a look around, it's a wonderful blog. 

The other very cool blogs that are participating are:


Please visit them, say hello, and increase the donations!

The way this works is simple.  For any comments on this thread, I'll donate two dollars to Heifer.  This post will be up until Christmas eve. 

Thank you so much for your support of this wonderful organization, and the good work they do around the world!

  4. I hope this comment is worth, like, three chicks. Or maybe a couple goat horns. A cow hoof, at the least.

  12. Hi Mira - I love your site and your quote about acts of kindness. Go Heifer... On a funny note, I honestly, accidentally just typed Go Hefner. Very very different.
