Change a life with your spare change

The last few days have been all about shopping and saving. And today—Cyber Monday—is no different. The average American shopper was expected to spend $423 just last Friday alone, racking up steals and deals at an average savings of 30% during this year's holiday shopping blitz. 

What if we all reinvested that savings into a life-changing Heifer gift? Your savings could mean another family lifted out of poverty? A goat, sheep or water buffalo can be the hope a family is looking for and the chance to become self-reliant. And since 79 percent of Americans say they'd rather have a charitable gift than more "stuff" this year, you're sure to please everyone on your shopping list when you choose Heifer gifts.

Take a look at our info graphic to see just what you could get with your $$$ Savings $$$, then head on over to our catalog and make your selection.

Your friends and family will love knowing the gift you gave them offers families a path out of poverty. It's a priceless gift of hope for this holiday. And through our Cornerstone of Passing on the Gift, your gifts will continue to change communities for years to come as they're passed on up to nine times.

And after you give, make sure to send an e-card or create a personalized card that can be delivered directly to your gift recipient. With four convenient options, sharing your Heifer holiday gift is fun and easy!
