Father's Day gift-giving ins't easy for the dad who seems to have everything. (Does he really want another tie?) But shopping for Dad doesn't need to be difficult, if you remember that what he really wants is a reminder of the skills and values he imparted to his children. That's why the gift of self-reliance for a family in need is so special.

Our work often helps fathers stay with or return to their families. In countries like BrazilCambodia and Georgia,  it is common for men to migrate to find work because they can no longer support their family with their meager resources. Heifer International projects require the entire family to work together to turn the livestock into a money-making venture.

Helping bring a family out of poverty and into self-sufficiency for good sure sounds like something that would make a Dad proud. This Father's Day, give a simple but impactful gift that will delight your Dad with its far-reaching effects. With an attractive honor card from Heifer, you can let your father know how the gift in his name will create hope and opportunity for a family somewhere in the world.
