Every Sunday we 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.

Tim Schenck wrote a great blog post about the children at his church participating in "Animal Crackers," a program sponsored by Heifer International to teach kids how animals can help eradicate global hunger. The children raised enough money to purchase a cow, goat and pig to help families in need. Learn more about Animal Crackers.

This blogger just exercised his way to buying a goat for a poor farmer in Africa using EarndIt. Not only did he earn points toward a goat, he has seen improvements in his own exercise tracking. A win-win for everyone.

Andy and Kim Holloway are participating in the Nation's Triathlon today in Washington, D.C., hoping to raise money and awareness for Heifer International. We're rooting for you guys.
