Heifer International featured as Premier Charity on MyJobChart.com

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 2, 2012) – Heifer International participant families know a lot about chores as they must care for their livestock and crops. Now, thanks to MyJobChart.com, U.S.-based kids can have their chores benefit Heifer International families as well. 

MyJobChart.com is an online platform with almost 140,000 users that allows children and parents to track their tasks then gives them the opportunity to “save”, “spend”, or “share” their points earned. My Job Chart announced this week that Heifer International has been added as one of its premier charities. 

 “As users of My Job Chart decide to ‘share’ and designate the points they earn to go to Heifer International or another charity, these young people begin to feel that their work truly does matter.  More than just pleasing their parents, they learn they have abilities and opportunities that can make a difference on a much grander scale,” says Gregg Murset, founder of My Job Chart.com. 

Heifer International welcomes the participation of youngsters in its mission of ending hunger and poverty. As children work toward their own household goal, they will be helping other households move from poverty into self-reliance with gifts of animals and training. And that puts “doing your chores” into a whole new light.
