Last-minute gifts with Heifer

Last-minute gifts don’t have to be hasty and impersonal if you choose to give a goat, a llama, or perhaps some chickens. These animals will to help boost a hungry family’s nutrition, and products like milk, eggs and wool can be sold for income that will pay for school and health care.

Your gift recipient gets a beautiful honor card describing the benefits of the donation made in their name, and you get the satisfaction of having given something far more meaningful than a gift card.

What to give? This!

Ganga Khanal in Nepal experienced the power of a Heifer International gift. She had been rejected by her husband after she failed to produce a son. Despite his opposition, she joined a Heifer International women’s self-help group and received goats and training. Today she helps lead a women’s cooperative and run the co-op store. Her son now says, “The future looks bright for us because of our mothers.” A gift of $72 to Heifer International can help start another women’s self-help group.
