Heifer International’s goal is to end hunger and poverty through helping people throughout the world become self-sufficient. Your donation buys an animal, and the gift keeps producing for a community.
You can specify how you want your donation spent. For example, you can buy a flock of geese.
In some parts of the world, geese eggs are more than simply being part of diets. A family can raise the geese and use the sales from the eggs to buy food, clothes, medicine and school supplies. The gift just keeps producing, making the recipients self-sustaining. There are a variety of animals to choose from ranging from $20 on up.
Many countries are serviced by Heifer International. In the U.S., the nonprofit serves people in the Appalachians.
