Have you ever received a gift that made you feel like a millionaire? Scovia, a young woman from Uganda, has when she received a cow from Heifer. This single mother from Uganda cares for her own children, as well as 12 nieces and nephews orphaned by AIDS. "How can a hopeless person like me become a millionaire within days?" she boasts about her prize possession, Mastiko "Hope." Scovia is not quite a millionaire, but it's the dramatic difference in her household income since Matsiko's arrival that inspires her enthusiasm.
In the middle of the holiday bustle, Heifer gifts make it easy to stop and give a gift of hope that can make people in need, like Scovia, feel like millionaires. And, in the process, make your friends and family feel like a million bucks, too, when you choose Heifer for the holidays.
It's easy to understand why we've been distributing heifers around the world for more than 65 years. Each day, a heifer can give a family as much as four gallons of milk. And for the families we serve – many of whom live on just dollars a day – that's the key to escaping hunger and lifting themselves out of poverty. Add this winner of a gift to your holiday shopping list and you'll surprise your loved one with an unexpected gift that will provide lasting hope to a family in need.
If you've given Heifer before, you know how fulfilling it is to see your loved one's face light up when they realize the gift you gave is so meaningful. Share your gift this year with four creative card choices. Choose between traditional Heifer cards or mail cards directly to your recipient. For those who prefer online options, send an e-card or print a card online. All options are complementary and a great way to explain Heifer's mission along with your gift.
Recently, several of Heifer’s Hollywood friends gathered to show their support of our work around the world –- and they re-affirmed that Heifer gifts are great, whether you’re giving them or receiving them. Watch our latest video to see which celebrities consider a Heifer gift life-changing for everyone involved.
