Every week 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.

Putnam Indian Field School in Connecticut transformed into an art museum with works from students 2-5 years old. The students were excited to show their parents their artwork. At the same time, they were raising money from donations at the door for Heifer International. In all, they raised more than $2,800.

Director of Communication Ministries for the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of The United Methodist Church Paul Black's commentary on Heifer International, which we published on our blog earlier this week, has been featured on UMC.org, the website for the United Methodist Church, along with a video about the East Africa Dairy Project, of which Heifer is a part.

Each class at Visitation Catholic school will set a goal and raise funds for Heifer International for the school's service project from May 28 to June 7.

Students at North Middlesex, Massachussetts, are planting seeds, enriching lives, with a community garden that donates its produce to local food banks. The students work with a representative from Heifer International in the garden, who comes out every few weeks from Heifer Farm in Rutland.
