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.

The Chaffee County Times has an interesting read about one of Heifer's "seagoing cowboys" in 1945-46, Les Messamer. He traveled to Shanghi and New Zealand on behalf of Heifer delivering milk cows to orphanages and other organizations.

Faith United Church in International Falls, Minnesota, is having The Souper Bowl of Caring today, with a free will offering going to Heifer International and cans of soup donated to Falls Hunger Coalition Food Shelf. We think that's a "souper" idea!

Tim Deatrick got a new llama for his birthday, which he named George and will be going to help a Heifer International participant family in a poverty stricken village, and he talked about it on social media and in his blog.
