Learn more about Heifer

I just got the following e-mail:

"Dear Karama,

Heifer has learned that the CBS news show "60 Minutes," airing this Wednesday, Jan. 12, at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. CT), will feature the inspiring story of Heifer recipient Beatrice Biira.

In the segment, CBS Correspondent Bob Simon accompanies Beatrice back to her home in Uganda to learn how an animal gift from Heifer helped transform her family's life.

Please help us spread the word by forwarding this email to all your friends!"

As regular readers know, Heifer is one of my favorite organizations for sustainable development. I hope you'll watch and enjoy this segment tomorrow night.

I won't actually be able to watch this because I have a dance class at the same time, so I'd love to hear from someone who is able to watch it.

Our family donated part of our Christmas budget to Heifer International just before Christmas. I wrote about it in my blog.

What an excellent idea, Dr. Forbush! And I like the way you wrote about it in your blog. Thanks for sharing, and please come again and spread the word.
