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 youre surfing the web or know of a fun or creative fundraising effort, please share it with us here in the comments.
This Sunday school class project a few years ago is making a difference around the world and teaching students how people around that world live at the same time. This year's effort went to Heifer's Seeds of Change project, which helps families in Appalachia and the the Arkansas Delta right here in the U.S.A.
Here's a special birthday shout out to Ilyanna Kreske, who wrote an awesome blog post about her birthday. There are all sorts of ways to give, and Ilyanna is using her birthday as a chance to contribute to our mission and ideals with her blog post and her gift registry on heifer.org. Thank you Ilyanna, and happy birthday!
This article said it so well, I just had to quote it. "Can't decide between a necktie, a sweater or another bottle of perfume?
