Heifer Project
Rabbit Total
We have raised $ 431.43 to send to Heifer International this year.   This will buy about two-dozen rabbits for families in need.  According to Heifer International, rabbits multiply rapidly making them a low cost high yield way to help impoverished families increase their income.  Also, rabbits are easy to care for, require only simple food and produce manure that can be applied to gardens without composting, immediately boosting crop productivity.  What a great gift from our families to families around the world struggling to survive.  Thanks to all for your support.
