Donors Share How They Give

United States of America

We love giving to Heifer International. We have a quarter tube display in our home. We encourage friends that visit to donate. We recently raised $60.00 to buy a Flock of Hope at Easter. We love to visit the Perryville, AR center, so we took the quarters there for a special time of giving. We even got to love on some baby goats.

Ranch Volunteer Shares What Heifer Means to Her

Senegal

I remember the first time I heard of Heifer International. I was sitting in a Peace Corps van, driving through the streets of Thies, the second largest city in Senegal. Two of my fellow volunteers started excitedly chattering as we passed a sign. They slapped on the window and shrieked at each other. I didn’t really understand the excitement, but I noted the sign, a cow jumping over the word “Heifer”. At the moment, it didn’t mean much to me, but looking back on that moment, it was the start to something amazing.

Ranch Volunteer Recounts Experience

United States of America

As a sophomore in college, I was looking for something to do between school years, when I remembered that Heifer Ranch offered volunteering opportunities. I had been a participant at the Ranch on four different occasions, and I decided that it would be great to see the other side of things here. Little did I know, my decision to be a Heifer Ranch volunteer would shape the rest of my life.

An Enthusiastic Supporter Visits Heifer Ranch

In May, through the annual Worldbuilders fundraising auction, I was given the incredible opportunity to visit Heifer International and the Heifer Ranch in Arkansas. I met volunteers and staff and saw firsthand how Heifer operates and the kind of people with whom it works. I got to milk a goat and feed pigs and see what the lives of Heifer's clients are like. Heifer International is an amazing organization, and I'm proud to support it. I'm proud to Pass On the Gift.
