Every Sunday we will highlight some of the people who are funding our work creatively or helping us spread the word of our mission online. If you spot Heifer International while you’re surfing the web or know of a fun or creative fundraising effort, please share it with us here in the comments.

If you're in Somerville, MA, on Saturday, June 9, you might want to check out Goatstock, a concert with three bands -- Astro Al, TimWorld, and Mission Creep -- all to benefit Heifer International through the donations of goats to communities in need. Official Goatstock CDs will also be for sale, with proceeds going to Heifer.

Thanks to Andrew Mersmann of the Change by Doing blog. Andrew is a long-time Heifer fan, and features our newest project starting in the United States, Seeds of Change, in a recent blog post.

Check out the blog "Down the Rabbit Hole We Go..." and the post about community gardening and urban gardening, with a nice mention of Heifer as charity to help provide the most basic of human needs.

Thanks to babypips.com's Espipionage blog for making Heifer International the featured charity of the month for June, and for donating proceeds this month to help eliminate poverty and hunger around the world.

You don't have to say this five times fast, but we are grateful to the blog "she shoots sheep shots" put in a good word for this very cool fundraiser selling bags of yarn made from donated fibers spun into yarn by volunteers, with all the proceeds going to Heifer.
