In the upcoming Spring issue of World Ark, you'll meet dairy farmers in Romania who find joy in giving back. In spite of their own challenges to improve their families' shelter and nutrition, they donate a portion of their milk and dairy products to orphans, hospitalized youth and vulnerable Roma communities so all can share in the rich protein meals they now enjoy regularly.

You'll also read about Claire Stine, Heifer International's original cowboy who raised the first heifers Faith, Hope and Charity. His contributions spanned decades and an ocean to help others.

Jennifer Wheary's article "Dare to Share" will give you a fresh way to look at sharing and explain the global economic trend that has people sharing offices, bicycles and language skills around the world.
