Teach a man to fish… will you join me?

This is the $5 on 5 post for February.  If you don’t already know what this is about, please check this post for a full description of what I’m doing here and why.

Pass on the Gift - Heifer International This month, I’m inviting you to join me in giving $1 or $5, or whatever you can afford, to Heifer International.  Our donations may be small, but enough little bits can add up to a great thing.

"Heifer recipients receive months of training in how to care for their animal; sell the milk, eggs or other products at market; and restore the environment. Passing on this knowledge as well as the offspring of the gift animal is at the heart of Heifer’s model which has been ending hunger and poverty for over 60 years."

You can donate online here using Paypal, Google Checkout, Amazon, or creditcard.  If you work for a large company be sure to check, they may offer matching funds to stretch what you can afford to donate even further.

I don’t get anything out of this, and I won’t get a notification of your donation, but I’d love to hear from you if you were able to help out.  Just drop me a note here, or at our Facebook group, and let us know that you’ve joined in.  I’ll be back with a different charity next month. If you have any suggestions please feel free to leave a note about that as well.

    What a cute story! You hooked me so I’d read through. What made you think of this? You say it’s just creative writing….not something that actually happened? We have a large glass window in our living room and a couple birds have smacked into them and not gotten up again, so I was glad to see this silly little bird went on his way and kept coming back. But gee, Tam, can’t you at least let him find a real bird in the end? (Sigh.) Why do I want fiction to end happily?
