Let Heifer International Help Fulfill Your Christmas Giving

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Dec. 6, 2012)—Christmas presents on your mind? Heifer International is offering a new online experience, called “Heifer International’s Christmas Wish List,” that allows gift-givers to explore the fun and the meaning behind the charity’s unique Christmas presents – gifts of animals and other resources to families in need.

With videos, photos from the field, fun facts and an interactive storybook for families, Heifer International’s Christmas gift page allows both new and longtime supporters to encounter Heifer’s work in an entertaining and engaging way.

Each year, thousands of people choose to give Heifer International animals as a Christmas gift. The spirit of the season – a spirit of brotherhood, joy and generosity – is exemplified by Heifer International with its holiday catalog, The Most Important Gift Catalog in the World.

Giving a Heifer International animal as a Christmas present is a truly meaningful way to honor your loved ones. Each gift provides hope to families in poverty and hunger by providing nutrition and income-generating products.

Heifer’s Christmas Wish List inspires holiday joy with gift ideas that have transformative benefits for the families who receive them. Visitors can watch a delightful “sheep's-eye-view” video to learn about the benefits of donating a sheep, or find a special Christmas recipe from the Philippines that reinforces the importance of nutrition. They can also see the impact of Heifer International’s work with women in India, where wives are getting help with housework from their husbands for the first time.
