Here's a recent message from Eliza Pennick: I want to alert you of the appearance of Nicholas Kristof (author of Half the Sky) on Oprah Winfrey’s show on October 1. Heifer will be mentioned, possibly even have a segment featuring Tererai Trent on the show. They will point to five or six charities and we will be featured.
Last time Heifer was mentioned on Heifer we were bombarded with calls & inquiries!

Back story to Kristof's appearance on Oprah: Here is a full article about women & development as covered in "Half the Sky":
