The Organic Growers Club is presenting this challenge to their loyal customers and the clubs within the College of Agricultural Sciences in hope that they will be able to give the gift of livestock to those who need it most. Heifer International is a well-respected charity that was started in 1940′s. Their mission is to give the gift of livestock to those in need around the world. With this gift comes the education to care for the animals giving the people a source of food and income. The animal’s offspring are then given to another family, thus spreading the gift and lifting entire communities out of poverty.
The Organic Growers plan on giving a base donation of $140 to Heifer International, which is a goat and flock of chickens! They are requesting that the CAS Clubs join with them to reach a common goal. The Organic Growers Club will match every dollar that their customers donate, doubling their gift!
A donation of any size would be greatly appreciated. The gifts can be as small as $20 for a flock of chickens or $5000 for ‘the ark’, which includes two of everything in the catalog!
