Holidays are the time of year when we all want to feel warm and cozy. Heifer gifts for the holidays aren’t just a donation. Your gift of an animal is one critical brick in the foundation of a future free of poverty for a family in need.
Over the last 70 years, Heifer International has given more than 20.7 million families the gift of livestock and training to help them lift themselves out of poverty. Each family then passes on the offspring of the animal they received, setting off a chain of giving that can go on indefinitely as each recipient family passes on offspring, knowledge and training. It’s called Passing on the Gift®, and it’s the hallmark of our development model. In fact, the average gift is passed on 9 times.
