CORNERSTONE: SHARING AND CARING
HOW IT WORKS:
Cooperation and friendship are key components of all Heifer projects. Recipients of animals and trainings are expected to share what they learn with their neighbors. It's not uncommon for Heifer project recipients to share their animals' bounty, too. Families who receive draft animals often help till neighbors' fields, and people with chickens often share eggs.
Most of us have lots to share. Making a donation is an easy thing to do. Volunteering your time to help a nonprofit organization is great, too. But there are smaller ways to share and care that are also meaningful. Taking a meal to an elderly neighbor, offering an afternoon of babysitting to a tired parent or even just picking up litter so the park is nicer for everyone else are excellent ways to show you care.
