LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sep. 20, 2012) – Parents and grandparents who love to give Heifer International animal gifts can share the full wonder of that gift with children through a new animated character. Sarah the Goat will show children how a goat, chicken, cow or other animal can bring a family from poverty to self-reliance.
Sarah the Goat provides a fun and interactive gift-giving experience for kids ages 5-10. Youngsters will learn about animals like bees or llamas, and the benefits these animals would provide to a needy farm family somewhere in the world.
Hunger is a problem that children can easily grasp, and every day Heifer International sees how passionately many kids want to be a part of the solution. Sarah the Goat is an accessible, enjoyable forum for children to learn and engage with the help of their parent, grandparent, or another generous adult.
With Sarah the Goat as a guide, the choice of which animal to give rests in the child’s hands. Kids can select, once they understand the potential of these dynamic animals, which kind of animal they’d like to donate, based on their gift-giving budget.
Meet Sarah the Goat is fun for both kids and those young at heart, and lets you see how one little goat can change an entire community.
