By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, they empower them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope. With gifts of livestock and training, Heifer projects help families improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways.

One of Melissa's friends recently passed away from this horrible disease. We will continue to donate until a cure is found. Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. Right now there is no cure, but the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is determined to change that.
