Still looking for the right Father’s Day gift? You’re cutting it a bit close, but there’s still time to go on our website and pick the perfect alternative gift for your dad and get one of our free printable Father’s Day cards. With a gift from Heifer, you’ll be honoring your dad while giving another dad the chance to better provide for his family.
Watch our own Cindy Jones-Nyland on our local news station from earlier this morning.
Who’s your dad? Is he the landscaper type who is always outside? Maybe he’s the fisherman who spends Sunday afternoons with a fishing pole and some bait. There is always the do-it-yourselfer dad who can fix anything. Or does your dad enjoy golf on the weekends?
No matter what type of a guy your dad is, Heifer has the perfect gift this Father’s Day. A gift from Heifer.
If your dad is the landscaper type, give him a goat. These versatile creatures can survive in even the most extreme climates. They supply up to a ton of milk a year, leading the way for better nutrition in impoverished communities.
If you’re dad is the fisherman, consider honoring him with fish. Healthy, lean sources of protein, fish help families increase their daily nutrition.
The do-it-yourselfer dad would enjoy a gift of a water buffalo. This “living tractor of the East” are tough guys who empower families to lift themselves out of poverty and hunger. A farmer can plant four times more rice with the help of a water buffalo than he can by hand.
If your dad would rather be on the golf course, then a flock of chicks is the ideal gift for him. One chicken can lay an average of 257 eggs a year for a family. This provides a family enough eggs to eat, sell and share, ensuring health and well being for an entire community. That’s a “birdie” any golfer would love.
Got a dad who loves power tools? Honor him with the original – a water buffalo or goat. Or maybe fish or chicks from the Heifer International Gift Catalog – and address hunger and poverty head on. This Father’s Day, Gift Different. Give Heifer.
Looking for a unique Father’s Day gift for your Dad? Maybe the father of your children? Save yourself a trip to the department store, and definitely don’t bother getting him another box of golf balls (he collects them on the course for free!).
Father’s Day gift-giving ins’t easy for the dad who seems to have everything. (Does he really want another tie?) But shopping for Dad doesn’t need to be difficult, if you remember that what he really wants is a reminder of the skills and values he imparted to his children. That’s why the gift of self-reliance for a family in need is so special.

Our work often helps fathers stay with or return to their families. In countries like Brazil, Cambodia and Georgia, it is common for men to migrate to find work because they can no longer support their family with their meager resources. Heifer International projects require the entire family to work together to turn the livestock into a money-making venture.
Helping bring a family out of poverty and into self-sufficiency for good sure sounds like something that would make a Dad proud. This Father’s Day, give a simple but impactful gift that will delight your Dad with its far-reaching effects. With an attractive honor card from Heifer, you can let your father know how the gift in his name will create hope and opportunity for a family somewhere in the world.
