Congratulations to children, staff and parents at Moscow Charter School!!
Our Winter Holiday Fundraising drive for Heifer International during the month of December raised $460.00!!
is a charitable organization whose mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth, using the simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief. They do this by giving gifts of livestock and training to help families improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. They refer to the animals they give as "living loans" because in exchange for their livestock and training, families agree to give one of its animal's offspring to another family in need. It's called “Passing on the Gift” – a cornerstone of their mission that creates an ever-expanding network of self-reliance, hope and peace for millions of families in 128 countries.
With the monies raised, the children selected and donated the following gifts:
6 Flocks of Chickens
2 Flocks of Ducks/Geese
3 Trios of Rabbits
2 Hives of Honeybees
3 Shares of a Goat
1 share of a llama
1 share of a pig
What a great way to start the New Year, and a big Thank You to all of the children who participated in the spirit of giving to those in need.
