Benefiting Heifer’s
General Animal Fund

Animals are fundamentally important to practically every Heifer International project around the world. Animal products like milk, eggs, and meat improve nutrition, while other products like wool, draft power and manure for fertilizer help resource poor families earn money for education, clothes, health care, better housing and the startup of small businesses. The cornerstone of Heifer’s mission is that recipients agree to Pass on the Gift, sharing their training and their gift animals' offspring with others in need. It is sustainable development at its best!
Help Heifer International fulfill its mission to stomp out poverty around the globe by purchasing your ticket to our Pass on the Gift charity event. Hosted by Dr. Jeffery Gardere, the festivities will take place at Brooklyn’s very own ReBar, where we’ll mix and mingle while enjoying:
