Mayor's Youth Council Member Raises Money for Heifer

My name is Kaitlyn Akel, and I am a senior at North Little Rock High School and a member of the NLRMYC. I'm 17-years old. Recently, I held a massive community-wide bake sale with the help of the director of the North Little Rock Mayor's Youth Council, Jan Scholl, and several of the Council's kids in order to raise money to buy an animal or two to send overseas to a family in need.

A Quick Letter from Hatfield Elementary School Student Maisy

Dear Heifer International, I hope that the 4th grade's purchase of a water buffalo, an irrigation pump, sending a girl to school, a goat, a flock of chickens, ducks and geese really help a family. What I really like is that the gift of the animals purchased aren't just going to be used for one family, but it's a gift that keeps on giving. I look forward to knowing that a family has been changed! I really hope this will make a difference in a family! Sincerely, Maisy

Read a Book and Raise Some Money

Twenty-seven students at St. John Catholic School in Kansas City participated in Heifer International's Read to Feed program.

The students generously decided to donate one heifer, three schools of fish, one water buffalo, two llamas, two sheep, one goat, tree seedlings, three rabbits, two beehives, two flocks of chicks, one flock of ducks and one flock of geese!

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.
