For over 25 years the children at Celebration of Life have contributed to Heifer International (formerly known as Heifer Project).  Each Sunday during the children’s time the children place their offerings in Mister Pig.  On Memorial Day weekend the offering is counted and the children select the animal or gifts they would like to purchase for the Heifer International.
Heifer International’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth.  It all started with a cow.  Dan West was volunteering during the Spanish Civil War when he realized that if people had a cow to produce milk they would not need to depend on temporary aid.  By giving families a hand up, not just a hand out, we empower them to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity.
