I participated in a bazaar put on by the Puna Network, an organization of the people of Puna and Quebrada in the province of Jujuy in northern Argentina.

I was able to support, participate in and serve in an advisory capacity for this event with more than 500 people from families and communities in this area, sharing education and experience, combined bartering or trading seeds, food and other genetic materials that families need. It was very interesting, intense and educational for me.

My Grandma introduced me to Heifer International when I was 5 or 6 years old. It was near Christmas and she got a magazine, thought it was junk mail and was looking through it. She started reading about Heifer. Then I came over and she asked me, "Do you want to give a trio of rabbits to a family somewhere in the world?" I said, "Sure" and she told me all about Heifer. Now I am 10 years old and I have been giving to Heifer for a long time. I just love Heifer and it is an organization that helps poor people. I wanted my 4th grade class to know about Heifer and how they can help families. I talked with a teacher at my school and asked for help. We worked on a presentation to share with the 4th graders teaching them about Heifer. Then I made a flyer to go home with all the 4th graders. Then they had 2 weeks to donate money to Heifer. After the 2 weeks I counted all the money and we came out with $150.13. I want to buy an irrigation pump because I know water is very important. You can make food with it and you can drink it. I hope my donation impacts the world! Submitted by Elizabeth S.
Dear Heifer International, This entire idea started about two months ago when I saw the catalog lying on our center island. I paged through it and saw all of these people that needed food and income. Then it hit me, it would be a great idea to try to get my family to support me in this project. When the first email came I went crazy. My grandma had just given $50! Then the emails were coming in like crazy. I was getting donations almost once a minute. So then a month later we decided to get a Hope Basket, Clean Water for One Village, and a flock of chickens. Enclosed is $225. Keep the extra $5. Thanks, Nico S.
Hi! My name is Hannah and I am 8-years old. I raised money by making bracelets and instead of Christmas presents, I asked for money. So please buy a goat and (a flock of) chicken(s) with the money I raised! Happy Valentine's Day! Hannah PS: I hope I make a family happy.
