A Special Gift this Mother’s Day


I don’t often ask my readers to consider making a donation but today I received an appeal from Heifer International in honour of Mother’s Day. If you’re looking for a special gift for your mother, please consider making it one of these baskets: Mother’s Dream Basket, Mother’s Love Basket or the Mother Earth Basket.

From the Heifer International website:
Raising children is a big job, and it’s even harder for mothers who struggle for dependable sources of food and income. Honor or remember your own mother by helping another with a Mother’s Day basket from Heifer International. The animals and training your gift makes possible will help a woman in Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, or even right here at home care for her family the way your mother cared for you.

For more than 60 years, Heifer International has provided livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of mothers all around the world who struggle daily for dependable sources of food and income. Recipients of these animals “Pass on the Gift” by giving the offspring of their livestock to others – creating an ever widening circle of hope that has benefited 38 million people since 1944. Give today to help us continue this work
