Help End World Hunger

November 30, 2006

If you would like to help end world hunger and support a great organization this Christmas, please go to my PAGE at Heifer.

There are many things you can do and it is a wonderful way to engage children in the world issue of hunger and poverty. You can buy a flock of chickens for a family, a goat, a cow or build an Ark if you are so inclined. You would be amazed how little money it takes to make a huge difference in the lives of others all around the world.

I recommend some great books that highlight Heifers efforts:

  • Beatrice’s Goat, by Page McBrier; illustrated by Lori Lohstoeter – The New York Times bestselling children’s book.
  • Faith the Cow, by Susan Bame Hover – Beautifully illustrated book tells children about Heifer’s first cow.
  • “The Promise” – Meet Parmatma from India and Beatrice from Uganda in this video and see how they live.

My Aunt Mary gave Beatrice’s Goat to us when my daughter was born and donated a flock of chickens in our name to celebrate her arrival. I can not read this book without crying but donating some money is a better way to help the problem of hunger and poverty around the world.

Choose to make a difference in a families life as you celebrate all the wonderful things you are thankful for this year.
