Ever since Kira was a little girl Heifer Project International was a big part of her life. It began by reading the Children's book that told the story of how Heifer International was started by Dan West. Over the years different family members gave Christmas gifts of different animals. Since Steven met Kira he has become a big supporter of this cause too. Both Kira and Steven care about giving back. Feel free to donate here to the cause or you can go to the Heifer International Website (https://www.heifer.org). Below is the Heifer project story from their website:
Seventy-five years ago, Dan West began outlining a simple but groundbreaking plan to help the hungry. West, a Midwestern farmer and Church of the Brethren member, had recently returned from volunteer service in the Spanish Civil War where his job was to provide weary refugees with a single cup of milk. He knew American farmers had resources many others did not: cows and the steady supply of nutrition from their milk. This “not a cup, but a cow” thought was the driving force behind West founding Heifer International. Now, 75 years later, the “teach a man to fish” philosophy still inspires our work to end world hunger and poverty once and for all and has transformed the lives of millions.
