June’s Featured Charity: Heifer International

Imagine delivering unto an impoverished village a cow that can provide milk daily, plow in the field, give birth to another cow that in turn will provide milk and continue to pay it forward.  It’s a lot like the “Teach a man to fish” philosophy.  Imagine a chicken, capable of laying 200 eggs a year, feeding a family.  That is what Heifer International is all about.

Heifer International empowers families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity.  “Our animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at markets.” When many families gain this new sustainable income, it brings new opportunities for building schools, creating agricultural cooperatives, forming community savings and funding small businesses.

Serving Up Comedy supports this charity and asks that you consider making a contribution while enjoying our weekly shows at The Warehouse on Thursdays at 7pm.  To learn more about this charity, go to www.heifer.org.
