#GivingTuesday: 500 Animal Challenge! Will You Give One?

“We have named our chickens ‘dream launchers.’ They have helped us launch our dream of educating our children. We never lack seeds for our garden and we are able to…boost nutrition in our home.”
–Shafiq, chicken recipient

Animals have the potential to crush poverty and change lives in an incredible way…
Giving a rural, impoverished family animals is giving them an ongoing source of income and nutrition.

It enables them to better educate their children and better provide for their needs.

This #GivingTuesday we’re trying to raise funds to give 500 animals to families in our partner communities around the world.

Will you give one? 

When you give a family chickens, a goat, or pigs, you are LITERALLY giving them a gift that keeps on giving. When the animals reproduce the offspring can be sold for much-needed income, or raised to increase their herd or flock, or used to provide food and improved nutrition.

*ALSO, there’s another hugely important aspect of this awesome poverty-crushing strategy. When a family receives an animal from us, they give some of the offspring to another family. Now that family is given a helping hand out of poverty. And then they’ll give some of their first offspring to another family, and on and on the cycle continues.

So, you may give one animal, but the ripple effect of your gift—and the number of people you’re impacting—will be exponential!

(If you couldn’t tell, this is one of my favorite projects that we do.)

So, please give an animal today. Help us reach our goal of giving 500 animals by the end of the day Tuesday.

Can you give a goat for $80? Awesome. Give here.


Can you give a pig for $125? You rock. Give here. 

Maybe you’re legit tight on cash this year. I understand. There’s no pressure, but here’s a thought: can you give up one trip to Starbucks and instead use that money to give a $6 chicken? If yes, you can do that here.

An animal is definitely a gift worth giving… one that won’t be returned and definitely won’t be forgotten.

“Our chickens are of more value than we imagined…our children are healthy because they eat an egg every week.”
