The kids at First Presbyterian Yellow Springs are inviting you to a Pancake Supper fundraiser on February 12, with donations going to Heifer International. If you like wheat, gluten-free or blueberry pancakes and boiled Yellow Spring eggs you won't want to miss out!

During Lent, members at St. Andrews United Methodist Church in Mottville, NY, will save coins to donate to Heifer International. "We're going to have 40 days to give up to give back," Rev. Val White said. "At every meal, you put a coin in the bank. If it's pennies, that's fine. If every family member puts in a penny, that's going to be a good amount after 40 days to give."

The diversity club at Eagle Heights Elementary School is tackling everything from bullying to poverty and hunger. They started the year out with a bake sale, inspired to help Heifer International after reading the book Beatrice's Goat. The students made all the goodies to sell at school and raised enough to buy two goats and a beehive.

The students at Dogwood Elementary are collecting pledges, reading books and buying animals as part of Heifer International's Read to Feed Program. In fact, they raised enough to buy three-plus Arks full of animals. Watch the video of the news report on
