Winn Creek RV Park Pledges Christmas Donation to Heifer International
Winn Creek RV Park will donate 10% of all RV and tent camping fees between Oct. 2, 2008 and Jan. 1, 2009 to Heifer International. The organization sends bees, chicken, goats or large livestock to the impoverished worldwide. Owning something to reproduce and sell makes the difference between life and starvation for many and replaces despair with dignity. It is a "hand up" at Christmas to help others feel the worth of providing for their families.
Given a pair of goats, geese, or a flock of chickens, or livestock, the offspring provide for needy families and leave some to sell. A requirement is that a portion of the offspring goes to help another poor family get a start.
A single woman, alone or with children, in many third world countries leads a life of misery. Having access to something to sell does not just change her quality of life but may make the difference between life and death for the woman or her children.
We are a small business but we can help in this small way. Campers everywhere are familiar with the expression, "If you give a man a fish he eats for a day. If you teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime."
Update: We had our best winter season ever!! Thanks to your response we were able to buy and send a whole list of things including poultry, ducks, rabbits, even a goat! Thank you for your participation. Joy and Richard Heath
