Celebrate Her by Empowering another Woman with a Gift She Will Use to Improve the Lives of Her Children
She brought you in to this world, so why not give her a gift that will make it a little better for everyone? This Mother’s Day, when you give a gift through Heifer International in her honor, it will have double the impact for families in need through our Mother’s Day matching gift challenge.
To take part in the Mother’s Day Match, simply purchase a goat or a share of a goat, which will provide a struggling mother and her family in southern Zimbabwe nutrition, income and inspiration. Thanks to some generous donors, each gift will be doubled up to $150,000.
The women who receive goats not only get milk, cheese and butter, they receive training and education in its care. And goat manure makes a great fertilizer for better crop yields, too.
When women receive opportunities like the kind Heifer provides, it is proven that they pass those benefits on to their children. One constant throughout Heifer International projects is a mother's wish to make a better life for the next generation by giving them education, better nutrition and a safe and comfortable home. And, the mothers in our projects work tirelessly to make these dreams come true. Just like your mom probably did for you.
The gift—and the work behind it—will warm her heart and let her know that you are thinking of her. She’ll receive an e-card that explains Heifer’s work you’ll know you’re empowering other women to lift themselves out of poverty.
