2013 California State Employee Charitable Campaign Kicks Off

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Saturday, August 31, 2013 0 comments
Heifer Sacramento volunteers were out in force at the 2013 California State Employee Charitable Campaign kicked off at the state capital on August 21. It was a beautiful sunny day for getting to know all the charitable organizations that California state employees can support with monthly deductions from their pay checks. It doesn't get easier to make a difference. No stamps. No reminder mail. Set it and forget it!

Know that your pre-tax donation will help lift families out of poverty and into lives of self-reliance.
How much does it take to help? Five dollars a month for 12-months is enough to donate a flock of chickens/geese/ducks, a trio of rabbits, trees, or 2 hives of honeybees. Ten dollars a month for 12-months makes it possible to donate a goat, pig, or sheep. Your donation is also magnified through Heifer's Passing on the Gift, where Heifer's participant commit to pass on the gift of an animal off-spring and training to another family in need. This is a self-sustaining gift.

Heifer Sacramento have enthusiastic volunteers eager to staff booths or provide speakers for CSECC events. Contact us! Can't make a CSECC event and want to learn more of Heifer? Visit Heifer International's website for a wealth of information and a video library on Heifer's nearly 60 years work toward eliminating poverty and hunger.

Donate now! Here's the CSECC donation formHeifer International's CSECC code is 315.

Read about how one state employee learned about how Heifer Int'l offers a hand up instead of a hand out and became an ardent supporter.

Simplify Through Generosity

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Sunday, August 04, 2013 0 comments
I just learned that the first week of August is National Simplify Your Life Week. I always wonder who decides these things, but I can't disagree with the idea of simplifying life. Focusing on the important is one way to reduce the clutter of the everyday and that goes for helping others.

The Heifer International website has a link to some tips to make life a little simpler and help others by sharing resources.

What do you do to make life simpler?
