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.

Malcolm in The Middle fans will enjoy this blog, a look back at the series and a look forward with pictures of the stars now, including Jane Kaczmarek (Lois), a Heifer International supporter and Erik Per Sullivan (Dewey), who wrote the afterward to a children's book with Jane called Together,  which shows the importance of livestock in the world, and was inspired by Heifer International's mission.

Congratulations and a big thanks to the kids in the Reading Program at Watertown Free Public Library. Not only did they reach their goal of reading 2,000 hours, they reached 2,900 hours. They will be donating the funds raised to Heifer International for ducklings, geese, rabbits and a pig to help families around the world.

Architecture buffs and the environmentally conscious will want to check out this article on Eco-Structure's website about the LEED Platinum-rated Heifer International headquarters here in Little Rock, Arkansas.
