Alright with Moo, you're alright with us. Heifer has been astounded by the outpouring of support Kris Allen fans have shown us in their effort to honor Kris Allen's 25th birthday and follow his example of giving back. At first the goal was a to buy Kris a cow that would go to help a hungry family lift themselves out of poverty. In just a few days the team had raised over $25,000, enough to buy 50 cows. Kris Allen was evidently impressed by the support his fans showed through Heifer.

At a birthday concert he even mentioned Alright with Moo and Heifer (3:20 into the video):

MTV wrote about the event, and Bill Gates put it on his daily Twitter blog. It's been a whirlwind and we just have to say thank you to everyone involved. Our team is at work creating a special birthday card to send Kris with the names of those who contributed in his honor. We'll present it in a few days, so you still have until Wednesday to honor Kris and help families in need.
