Global Village, Bible School, Fun Fest and $5,000 Goals

Every week we highlight some of the people who are funding our work creatively or helping us spread the word of our mission online. If you spot Heifer International while you’re surfing the web or know of a fun or creative fundraising effort, please share it with us here in the comments. Photo credit: Harrison Daily.

Sixth and seventh grade students from Green Forest were immersed in lifestyles from around the world at Heifer Ranch's Global Village. While learning about our mission to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth, students participated in problem-solving skills through experiential education.

Check out these adorable photos from the Family Farm Fest held at Church of the Holy Nativity in Clarendon Hills, Illinois, on August 3. Attendees made butter out of goat milk, visited with pigs and did some needle felting, all while raising a very impressive $20,000 for Heifer International.

Saint John's Presbyterian Church in Houston hopes to raise $5,000 by November 24, as part of their Fill the Ark special project. Pastor Daryl Allen and his church, Druid Hills United Methodist, are teaming up with Belleview United Methodist with the goal of raising $5,000 to buy a Gift Ark by Christmas Eve through Heifer International. Thanks to all for your generosity!

Two well-known Michelin-starred chefs with restaurants in China are battling the bulge in a contest that will benefit two chosen charities: Eduardo Vargas chose Pink Alliance, and Harlan Goldstein chose Heifer International. The contest, which began in May, ends this month.

Children at vacation Bible school in Orland Park were taught the importance of being kind to their neighbors, even those thousands of miles away. The 40 children who attended Faith United Methodist Church's Bible school raised $500 for Heifer International.
