Gift Differently This Year

Do you have one of those people on your shopping list that has absolutely everything?  You are at a loss at what to get them?  You want something meaningful and unique, something they will appreciate, but you just can’t find the perfect gift… well, stop shopping and gift differently this year with an [alt] gift.

Heifer® International is helping you with your shopping list this year, and at the same time working to end hunger and poverty.  There is a wide array of gifts to choose from – animals, basic necessities, and other gifts.   Gifts start at $10 and with each gift you donate, you can print a free honor card to present to your loved one.

  • Nearly 870 million people around the world don’t have enough food to eat.

  • Heifer International has helped lift 20.7 million families out of hunger and poverty.


Check out the gift catalog for a listing of the most important gifts in the world.

You can give:

Animals: provide a  family food and a small business that provides wool, milk, eggs, and more.

Empower Women:  provide support for women’s groups, training, and send girls to school.

Basic Needs: provide clean water, sanitation, shelter and health care.

Sustainable Farming: provide access to reforestation, organic gardening, farming, and alternative fuels to assist families and care for their Earth.

We believe we can end hunger.

Together, we can change the world.


Oh, and if you have Bill Gates on your Christmas List, he asked for a flock of chicks.  (And, no… I don’t make this stuff up!)



I encourage you to gift differently this year.  For as little as $10, you can provide a life-changing gift to a family in need.  Plus, you could finish up your holiday shopping and help a family and community in need.

And, if you don’t know what to buy your favorite mommy blogger (me!), I’d love some honeybees.
