1. People donate $$.
2. Heifer purchases animals or seeds in a country.
3. A family in that country is then gifted with that animal or seeds & taught how
to use the gift to provide food and income for themselves.
4. The family then gifts the first baby to another family in an amazing
"Passing on the Gift" ceremony...and the cycle begins again.
Heifer is not a 'hand-out'...it's a 'hand-up'. I have spent time in this organization and I believe whole-heartily in their mission. If you're looking for a Christmas gift for the person who has everything, please consider a gift to HPI!
