Elizabeth Starts a Fundraiser at Her School

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.

Donor's Enthusiasm Infects Family and Friends

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.
