Return to World Ark Blog Landing

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.

Bread for the World Institute has a resource series called Development Works that will include eight short pieces that make the case for effective development assistance and clarify common misperceptions. We were honored that a Heifer project participant in Ghana was used in their blog as an example of what development assistance means.

Watch this inspiring program aired on AETN about a Quizbowl tournament hosted by Parkview High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, to raise money for Heifer International.

Sandy Stonesifer, a columnist for Slate, gives a thoughtful answer to a question that has been asked many times by charitable people, "Where can I have the most impact?"

Thanks to Juliet for mentioning Heifer among suggested charities on Ask Granny's recent blog post, "You Can Make a Difference: Choose to Give."
