STORIES TAGGED: CHICKENS
See where Heifer is working around the world to end hunger.
Hello! My name is Anna Finkenauer and I am a teacher in Denver, CO. My second grade class has been studying what it means to be a good citizen so we decided to do a service project together. We looked at many different charity organizations and decided on Heifer International because of your mission to empower people in need. We loved to idea of raising money to buy an animal, the students had a blast looking at all the different animals and learning about them. We decided to host a hot chocolate stand after school to raise money. The class came together to create a plan, gather supplies and advertise for it. It was an awesome way for our class to bond and we ended up raising $700! Seeing our whole school come to support our stand was amazing, and many students have found a new passion for community service after this experience. We voted on what animals to buy and decided on a Heifer, a flock of chicks, a goat and two honeybee hives. Thank you for everything your amazing organization does, we are so excited to continue to raise money for Heifer International throughout the year!

I had read the article written by Chelsea Clinton, titled 'Why Some Countries Are Poorer Than Others' in the summer edition of your Worldark magazine. I was especially touched by Chelsea’s mention of her grandmother’s gift of animals through Heifer International in her grandchildren’s name and of the story of Beatrice’s Goat. I obtained a copy of Beatrice’s Goat and fell in love with the story and wanted to promote its cause during our upcoming Vacation Bible School... Please click the title to read the rest of the story!
