Thank you- A Donation to Heifer International

chicks-ecard212x212 On behalf of Dream English I have made a donation of a Hope Basket to Heifer International. If you don’t know about Heifer International, it is a really great organization that uses its donations to provide families with livestock, in order to empower them to make a difference in their lives. This is from their website:

Heifer International provides livestock and training so that families can improve nutrition and earn income for health care, shelter and education for children. Each gift multiplies because every family that receives a Heifer animal promises to “pass on the gift” by giving one or more of their animal’s offspring and knowledge to another family in need.

Thank you!

It is your support of Dream English this year  that helped make this donation, so thank you for your support! If you would like to make your own donation, or learn more about this great organization please check out the Heifer International website here.

  1. As a Midwest Heifer Volunteer Coordinator, just wanted to say Thank You to you and your supporters. You can’t imagine, until you meet the recipients, what a difference these gifts make in their lives, and how greatful they are. It’s a truly magnificent gift that keeps on giving because of the “Passing on of the Gift” concept used by Heifer. Each recipient gives the first born offspring of the animal they received to someone else, so it just keeps the gift going and going! Barb Oakes

  2. I really like this organization, thanks for your comment. I am glad to hear from someone who has seen first hand what great gifts these are. Thank you!
