Doing Well by Doing Good

Heiffer One of my favorite charities is Heifer International, which buys farm animals for third-worlders to improve their lives through self-sufficiency. The organization has recently added an educational extension that is a one-stop clearinghouse for information on poverty and how to stop it. On top of lesson plans and online resources, the Heiffer site has printable classroom activities. It’s free but you’ll need to register and your class just might want to do a fund raising project to buy a village in Honduras a lamb.
