What happens when one mom challenges her kids to come up with a way to raise money for the less fortunate? Tye-dye socks of course! For $6, you can buy a pair of socks from Tye Dye Turbros, LLC, and help a family contribute to the Heifer cause.

Heifer International is we-care.com's cause of the month! We are happy to be among the other organizations they have supported in the past. Check out their site and see how they are working to support Heifer.

Feeling uninspired? That will surely change when you read this great story of a very inspirational 12-year-old student, our good friend Ryan Bell, who helped raise more than $50,000 for Heifer International. Ryan refuses to let difficulties in his own life keep him from making a positive impact on the lives of others.

Jerry Aaker and his wife, Judy, spent more than 40 years working for people living in poverty. In his latest book, Spirituality of Service: Reflections on a Life-Long Journey of Faith and Work Among the World’s Poor, Mr. Aaker recounts his experience working for multiple nonprofit organizations, including Heifer International. The Friends of the Sheridan Library will be hosting a reception for him on September 5 at the library in Montana.

HungerTV interviewed Daylon Suh, winner of The Hunger and Rankin photography competition which asked photographers to submit images conveying what the word ‘hunger’ meant to them. Suh's entry, taken while on assignment in Singapore, shows that, “Sometimes, because we live in relative comfort in our city, we tend to forget that there are still homeless and poor people who get left behind.”
