If you're celebrating Christmas, I wish you a happy one. I don't want to take too much time away from your family celebrations, so I'll just share this short video with you one more time. I think Pierre Ferrari puts it well: "The holidays are a special time; but for the honest, hard-working people we help around the world, every day is a struggle for survival."

If you've given to Heifer or toward another important cause this holiday season, Thank You. But remember, the poor and hungry need a hand up out of poverty every day of the year.
