Heifer Project

Have you ever thought about helping to feed the hungry?
Try this web link out. Heifer International doesn't just give people food---they give people the means to keep producing their own food.
"Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime"
Heifer not only helps people get livestock but they teach people to sustainably raise their livestock. They also "give" gifts of trees to help people replant erroded areas and re create sustainable agriculture that doesn't deplete and over use these areas.
Click on the words Heifer Project above and it will take you straight to their web site. Check it out for yourself, I don't think you will be disappointed :-)
