Every Sunday we will 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 youre surfing the web or know of a fun or creative fundraising effort, please share it with us here in the comments.
Congratulations to Beatrice Garrard, one of Edmonds-area high school June Students of Month. She took part in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) pledge-per-page,"write-a-thon" fundraiser, which raised more than $1,000 for Heifer International and relief for Japanese earthquake refugees.
Students at St. Marys Catholic Middle School raised $660 by donating leftover change and contributing $1 to participate in dress-down day. Students have chosen to purchase a heifer, a goat and two flocks of chicks.
