Hope for New Beginnings, Prosperity in the New Year


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Dec. 30, 2012) — Many mark the beginning of a new year by making resolutions, setting goals and starting with a fresh outlook for the 12 months ahead, and at Heifer International we are doing the same. We want to end hunger and poverty by helping more families move from poverty to prosperity, and we invite you to join us in this pursuit by considering joining our Friends of Heifer program. 

The Friends of Heifer program allows donors to contribute monthly with an automatic withdrawal from a checking account or credit card.  Monthly donors help Heifer International have predictable and consistent resources needed to plan and implement Heifer’s transformative model, assisting more families to improve their lives. 

A gift of $10 per month would equal a goat by year’s end, or $50 would equal five pigs, and each are part of Passing on the Gift® where families donate an offspring of the animal to another community member.  Heifer’s gift of animals and training provide valuable skills and income for families to better take care of their homes, children and future. 

Begin your new year with a commitment to make the world a better and more prosperous place for another in need.  To learn more visit www.heifer.org/give/monthly-giving.
