Carroll High School is continuing its holiday tradition of raising money for Heifer International. Last year, Heifer’s unique community development model assisted more than 191,000 families with gifts of animals, training, and Passing on the Gift. In addition, members of 238,000 more families received special training that included sustainable farming techniques. And another 539,000 families received significant benefits directly.
Heifer International is an organization that provides livestock to families in the poorest of nations (Tanzania, Zambia, Kenya, and others). Each gift becomes a continuing investment – there are heifers that give milk… chickens that produce eggs …. sheep that provide wool… and the list continues. A heifer can be milked to provide badly needed food as well as a means of income for a single family or an entire village. When the heifer produces a calf, the gift is ‘passed on’ – to another family within the village – continuing the cycle of a self-sustaining investment.
Last year Carroll High School raised more than $2,300 for Heifer International. The campus goal this year is to DOUBLE last year’s contribution by raising $5,000 for needy families in famine-stricken areas of the world!
If you or your organization would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to this worthy cause, please send your check made out to Heifer International in care of Kathy Prado at Carroll High School. You can also contact Kathy via email at Kathryn.Prado@southlakecarroll.edu.
Celebrate the holiday season by giving gifts that help those in need.
