We came, we saw, we sold!

Heifer International began in the 1940’s, with one man’s vision as he helped feed children during the Spanish Civil War.

From here it has grown into an international effort to feed, educate and fulfill the lives of people around the world.

It’s a cool thing! Heifer.org

The girls learned the seven, “Ms” which Heifer strives to provide through their animals. They are acting them out in this picture. From left to right they are:
Motivation, Manure, Muscle, Materials, Meat, Money and Milk.

Then we split into groups and all toured the village and the office building which is certified LEED. Amazing place.

Now it’s time for serious business, what to ‘buy’ for our GS donation. Much deliberation!
