This year give them something that will really make a difference. Make a donation in their name to Heifer International Charitable Gifts.
· Promote Women’s Empowerment ($72 to $15,000): Women produce 80 percent of the developing world's food but own only two percent of the land. We aim to change that. These gifts will provide support for women's groups, training in gender equality and the means to send girls to school. Help empower women around the world to reach their full potential. This selection of gifts will Send a Girl to School ($275), Fund a Women’s Self Help Group ($72) or Launch a Small Business ($365).
· Support Sustainable Farming ($20 to $170): Heifer International believes that caring for the Earth is vital to ending hunger and poverty, whether it's through reforestation, organic gardening or adoption of fuels that reduce the ill effects to the environment. Help families care for their environment with these sustainable gifts, including: Family Farm Care Package ($72), Gift of Trees ($10 – $60) or Gardener’s Gift Basket ($20 – $170).
· Provide Basic Needs ($36 to $1,000): In some of the world's most impoverished countries, obtaining basic necessities like clean water and shelter is a daily struggle. Help families improve their lives with gifts that improve sanitation, health and access to clean water. Give Clean Water ($399), a Boost of Nutrition ($36) or Bioga Stoves ($50 – $1,000).
