Roses are red,
Violets are blue,

With Valentine's Day just a week away, it's not too early to begin thinking of what you can get for your sweetie. But instead of spending hundreds of dollars on flowers that will wilt or chocolate that could melt, instead, do something for your Valentine that will be felt in the heart.
It may not be a candlelit dinner, but what better way to spend a little time with your honey than volunteering at a soup kitchen or taking time out to do something to pay the love forward.
Cook Together at Home
Continue to make sustainable food choices and buy foods that are seasonal. You and your Valentine can know that the meal you are sharing is a meal that is good for the Earth and for your budget.
Pick the Perfect Gift
Show your love this Valentine's by giving a gift that you know will make him or her jump over the moon with joy. A gift from Heifer. You can even print off a card to be able to share your gift with that special someone.
What will you be doing this Valentine's Day?
