Teachers are the best. Kathleen Yanez, a teacher at Jack Jackter Intermediate School wrote a song and recorded her 5th grade class singing as part of their school's Read to Feed initiative. What a great example of using your talents to raise awareness for a cause. She gave us permission to put her song to best use, and we've created a short slideshow of photographs of Heifer project participants' children in Honduras.

In Honduras, where three out of four people in rural areas live below the poverty line, we have a unique opportunity to bring about lasting change. A generous donor will match your contributions up to $1.5 million, for a total of $3 million to help struggling communities in Honduras. We're close to reaching our goal, but we still need your help.
