Goldfish Press has created a fundraising project on behalf of Heifer International and we're excited that the proceeds of it's very first publication;
The World According to Goldfish
a Poetry Anthology is going to buy some cows!
What would be the better gift for someone? Another present that gathers dust on a shelf? Or a donation that represents a heifer and training in its care, that brings health and hope to struggling families around the world?
The concept is simple, every gift given multiplies, as the animal's first offspring is passed on to another family-then they also agree to pass on an animal, and so on.
A good dairy cow can produce four gallons of milk a day - enough for a family to drink and share with neighbors. Milk protein transforms sick, malnourished children into healthy boys and girls. The sale of surplus milk earns money for school fees, medicine, clothing and home improvements.
And because a healthy cow can produce a calf every year, every gift will be passed on and eventually help an entire community move from poverty to self reliance. Now that's a goal and a gift worth giving!
