Let's Buy a Cow!

This year my co-workers and I decided to donate to Heifer International instead of buying each other gifts. We each put in $25.00. One of our flooring vendors heard what we were doing and told us he would match anything up to $1000.00. Wow! I got to works and copied a cute photo (with the goat) and made up a flyer and slapped it up on the refrigerator in the employee break room. We raised $370.00! Without even really trying!! When our vendor came in, he wrote a check for $630, bring us to $1000!! We were overwhelmed! It was so exciting! We bought 7 goats, 2 sets of rabbits and 2 sets of ducks. All of us feel really good knowing that these animals will make a difference in the lives of the families who receive them. Thank you for your good work and for making it so easy to help.

How to Buy a Cow (and Give it Away)

Picture seven tall kitchen waste baskets full of used, empty bottles and cans. It looks like a pile of junk! That is, unless your name is Shea Berry. With many of the bottles and cans carrying coding for refundable recycling, Shea recognized their true value.
