Kids can make a difference as they participate in your library's reading program!
With your help, children across the United States will have the opportunity to take a journey around the world as they read stories from various countries and cultures. As they read, they will be helping children and families around the globe lift themselves out from the grip of hunger and poverty.

Since 1944, Heifer has provided food and income-producing animals and training in their care to 12.5 million resource poor families in more than 125 countries. Animal products like milk, eggs and meat improve nutrition while other products like wool, draft power and manure for fertilizer help families earn money for education, clothing, health care, better housing or to start small businesses.
At the heart of Heifer's philosophy is the Cornerstone of Passing on the Gift® whereby families share one or more of their animal's offspring with other families in need. This unique development idea multiplies the benefit of the original gift and allows project partners to become donors. Kids who enroll in your summer reading program can now be part of Heifer's gift-giving chain as they Read to Feed™
