Pleasant Valley Students 'Pay it Forward'

"Why Heifer? I'm a farmer's daughter and I know that Heifer's mission to provide communities around the world with gifts of livestock, etc. and passing on the gift to another family in need, is working." Educator and Heifer Community Volunteer, Deb Hay, shares with us her passion for supporting Heifer's Mission. Please click the title of this story to read more!


Loyal Donor Inspires Others to Save the World

Enclosed please find a contribution to Heifer. This is in honor of my wife Linda L. Harlan. In about 2011, our church sent several members, including Linda and myself, to Arkansas to the Ranch. Olivia Heisner, who grew up in our church (Trinity Presbyterian Church, Columbia, MO) was at Heifer for a year before starting college. She was a wonderful singer and was a theater major. But did she really want to try to go to Broadway? The theory was that she would take a year away from theater and then she would know if that was her calling.

Hoof It for Heifer

United States of America

In 2012 we began a 20k trail run. Hoof It for Heifer is held on the Boy Scouts of America hiking trail in Petit Jean State Park atop Petit Jean Mountain near Morrilton, AR. The popularity of the run among trail runners has increased each year and with that we have been able to increase the amount we give to Heifer. We held our fourth run in April 2015 with 126 runners registered. Click the title of the story to read more...
