Best Gift of All...

Our good friend Alan has blessed us with the best gift of all, the gift of giving. Thanks to Al, we have done a small part to help End Hunger and Care for the Earth.

The Heifer Foundation holds many opportunities for people like you and me to give to someone/village that is less fortunate. Alan gave "us" the gift of geese. Since some geese can lay up to 75 eggs a year even "six geese a-laying" can add up quickly for families in desperate need of protein and a means of income. Geese are easy to care for because they don't require much shelter and can adapt to hot, wet or cold weather. Geese can also find a good portion of their food by themselves, and they efficiently dispose of weed seeds and gobble up insects, slugs and snails.

Thank you Alan.

Love it. I'm giving 50 cents to every Heifer for every Christmas card I sent out. It's an amazing foundation. Shannon
