The Gift of Self Reliance - 2014 Heifer Donation

Posted by

I have been crocheting this year for the first time in years, so when I saw this knitters' basket, I knew it was the right thing.  Especially when I saw that it included four beautiful animals to provide the fabric for not only making clothing and blankets but also to provide milk.  So this year I decided to donate to the following Heifer programs:

1.  A KNITTERS' BASKET TO KEEP FAMILIES WARM

Heifer International's Knitter's Gift Basket includes a llama, an alpaca, a sheep and an Angora rabbit. This gift for knitters also ensures families are instructed on how to properly feed and care for the animals.  

Each Knitter's Gift Basket:

  • Nourishes families with milk from the llama and sheep
  • Keeps families warm with wool that can be made into sweaters and scarves
  • Provides a source of income from the sale of clothing and blankets made from the wool

These four animals included in the knitting basket provide families with ample wool for warmth, as well as a source of income. The donation of a Knitter's Gift Basket represents an opportunity for a better life.

2.  HONEYBEES

A gift of Honeybees includes bees, hives and training for nutrition and income to help lift a family out of hunger and poverty and to help honeybees flourish worldwide.

Thank you!

Join me again next year to support this wonderful program!

To each person who helped with this donation by purchasing something on this site during the month of December 2014, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You are deeply loved and appreciated for *all* that you do.
