STORIES TAGGED: GOAT
See where Heifer is working around the world to end hunger.
Abbey's Animals is the name of our Heifer International Mission Project at Grace United Methodist Church of Fort Worth. Named after one of our youngest members, Abbey goes around with the feed bucket and collects spare change every week. At the end of the year, we let her choose from a list how to spend our money. At the end of 2014 we raised $425, which Abbey chose to purchase one goat, a share of sheep, a flock of chicks and to send a girl to school. We can't wait to see what our small but mighty church will do this year! - Sandy Lundberg
Raising money for Heifer International always seems to take on a life of its own. Monetary goals are set, people offer their assistance and the appropriate research is conducted about Heifer’s history, mission and current donation options. Once the fundraiser is underway, however, donors’ expectations are quickly blown away, which is exactly what happened when 4th grade student, Riya, set out to support Heifer’s mission.

Our Christian Education students of Saint Ann's Episcopal Church of Sayville, NY hosted our first Outreach Mission Project. After several weeks of discussing Heifer International in Sunday school, the younger students chose its animal of choice, a llama, as its goal purchase.
