Give the Most Powerful Gift This Holiday Season

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Nov. 7, 2012) – The holiday season is the perfect time to show our loved ones that we care - about them, and about the world we share. Holiday gift-givers can make a different and generous choice for exchanging gifts with this year’s selection of life-changing gifts from Heifer International.

This week holiday shoppers will get a look at 2012’s unique and touching animal gifts offered by Heifer International, as the global hunger and poverty nonprofit distributes its “Most Important Gift Catalog in the World.”

The animals bought through Heifer International go to families in hunger and poverty around the world, and the milk, eggs, meat, and transportation they provide can lift families from poverty to self-sufficiency – a gift anyone would be honored to make.

Whether looking for the perfect present for a mother or father, a teacher or grandchild, shoppers can check everyone off their list with ease by shopping the catalog’s offerings of goats, ducks, water buffalo and, of course, heifers.

The gifts purchased from the Heifer International gift catalog make a greater difference than most people can imagine, providing the tools for a family to achieve the self-reliance they desire. Heifer International’s projects offer training and collaboration, to ensure that every gift will create long-term change.

Heifer International provides a beautiful honor card for gift recipients, telling them about the impact of the gift made in their name. Shoppers will see the “Most Important Gift Catalog in the World” in their mailboxes soon. They can also call (800) 422-0473 to ask for one, or shop the online catalog at
