The major portion of our charitable contributions go to Heifer International.
This is a unique charity which has been around for more than 60 years which deals in livestock, and works in the poorest part of the world. Families who have nothing, are given livestock: a goat, or a water buffalo, a cow, a flock of birds, or many other gifts of a livelihood. And Heiffer provides training and communitiy development support.
The animals provide food to eat, as well as products and offspring to sell or share with others in the community.
I read one article where a man in Asia said, “If I die, my family will miss me. If my water buffalo dies, they will die.”
So far, thanks to clients, over the past 10 years, Azzarello Group has donated more than $100,000 to provide livestock and training to communities and families in need around the world.
It doesn’t seem like we do much to solve world hunger in our day to day work, but Heifer provides a chance to make a huge impact for one family at a time.
