What’s In My Inbox | Heifer harnesses cuteness in the name of gifting hope

December 5, 2017

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

People aren’t exactly sure about the original source of this quote. Scholars have debated its origins for decades, if not centuries. Nevertheless, its truth and impact has endured throughout time. And it’s a philosophy that Heifer lives out through their mission every day. With a sharp focus on sustainable solutions, Heifer’s emphasis is on long-term. How will people eat today, and how will they eat next week? How will they learn how to find their own food to feed themselves? To this end, Heifer provides communities with resources, including livestock, training, and tools that encourage self-reliance, economic security, and the development of sustainable food sources.

In their email communications, Heifer often goes the cute route, but always with purpose, and always remaining true who they are and what they do. Naturally, they had me at “Pamela, we can’t get enough of you,” but it goes far beyond that. Their holiday gift catalog inspires hope from the start, offering an array of Heifer’s sustainable solutions in gift form. Donors can peruse the options and click on each one to learn more, and gift cards are also available. It’s a gift card unlike any other, really: you’re giving someone the gift of making a community-changing difference.

Though the catalog is the main focus, the donate button can be found below. Heifer has offered a world of possibilities (and options) for their supporters. Check it out.
