Buy a Book
Give a Cow!
“The Buy - A – Book · Give - A - Cow! Project is a huge part of The Cows Go Moo Moovement. When you bought this book, you joined many other readers and listeners in helping to provide actual real cows for some of the hungriest children and families in villages around the world through Heifer International. One cow on average gives 200,000 glasses of milk during its milk production years. Each recipient of a cow receives training on how to provide long-term care for the cow. The selling of milk enables families to provide schooling, clothes, steady income and hope to children and communities. That’s a powerful way to change lives! We enthusiastically donate ten percent of our profits, towards providing these life-saving cows, from every book or every piece of Moo Merch purchased. To provide a cow for a family we need to raise $500 per cow, so we will keep putting aside ten percent of the profits till we have enough to buy the first cow and then do it again and again and again… Moochas gracias for helping us with this important project!”

Heifer International's Mission
The Mission of Heifer International is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth. The founder said, “What if they had not a cup, but a cow?” Heifer empowers families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – their approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Our animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market. Gifts of livestock through Heifer provides opportunities to empower people to change the world. Women are supplied tools needed to set themselves on a path to prosperity, helps them find their voice and gives them equality and dignity. When many families gain this new sustainable income, it brings new opportunities for building schools, creating agricultural cooperatives, forming community savings and funding small businesses. Thank you for helping to make a difference!
