Terrific Humanitarian Opportunity for Fiber Enthusiasts

As the holiday season nears, we want to share some information with you about a project that we feel is very important and worthy of our notice ~ Heifer International. The Heifer Project supplies people and communities with the tools and livestock to help them emerge from poverty and become self-reliant. Families learn to grow food and raise animals for food, income, and for making textiles. Then, the families pass this gift on to others by giving one offspring from each animal to another family in need. We share this with you because you may want to help by purchasing animals or shares of animals to be given to a family ~ check out the holiday gift ideas. The Knitter's Basket includes one llama, one alpaca, one sheep, and one angora bunny to keep a family fiber rich! Click on the links in this paragraph to learn even more about this terrific organization.
