My Birthday Wish

Have your read the book, Eat, Pray, Love? In this Elizabeth Gilbert sends out a birthday request to family and friends to raise money to build a home for a friend in need. This year, as we are starting to recover from the economic crisis I would like to put out a request for my birthday gift. Despite all, we have so much to give thanks for, while others are starving, dying and suffering we have shelter, food and our health. So instead of sending me gifts or sending me a Happy Birthday message through email, texts or Facebook, I ask you to reach deep into your pockets for just $10 and donate it to Heifer International. This money will be used to give families in need animals for food, products to sell and babies to share with their village. For instance, a cow can produce 4 gallons of milk a day, thats plenty for the family to drink and to sell. Each cow can produce a calf yearly and those calves can be sold. This gives the family milk, meat and money to become healthy and self dependent. When the family can, they will pass on these gifts to other families in their village and so on and so forth. Soon the whole village with be healthy due to your contribution on just $10.

I joined Team Heifer to help raise donations for Heifer's programs to end hunger and poverty around the world. Check out their website to learn more at

Please go to or the Heifer International link to donate in my name.

Thank you all for your love and support, Kate Kaplan
