Last year, the average discount given by retailers was 30 percent while the amount an average shopper spent $423. That means the average amount saved by shoppers was more than $125. This year, why not take that savings and help us build a better world? Your savings could get you any number of Heifer gifts. You could buy one goat, providing a malnourished family with four quarts of milk a day. Or you could fund a women’s group, plus buy a biogas stove for a family, feeding about 75 children. You could purchase six flocks of chicks that produce 1,284 eggs per month, which is a high source of protein.

Nearly 80 percent of Americans say they would rather have a charitable gift given in their name than something they don’t need. Heifer International gifts bring real, sustainable change. Our animals provide life-sustaining, nutrient-rich products. They empower women to be equal players in their communities, increase family incomes and enable education.
