Helping Others to Help Themselves
There is a Chinese proverb that states, “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.” Heifer International is an organization dedicated to ‘teaching a man to fish’, by providing impoverished communities with livestock, so that they aren’t fed for a day, but a lifetime.
Here at BeautyKind we are pairing up with Heifer International to help end the cycle of poverty on a global scale. It only takes a $20 purchase at BeautyKind to provide one chicken to an entire family, and we believe that’s an egg-cellent gift! Our goal is to raise enough money to donate 250 chickens to families, so they can have a means of sustainability and consistent access to food. We know that cool chicks give chicks, and we want you to help us in this cause to end hunger and poverty!
Some Chick-y Facts
Chickens require very little space, allowing families with small plots of land to maximize what they plant. Chickens help farm production by eating insects, removing weeds and even fertilizing crops.
A single chicken lays an egg every 24-26 hours, providing over 200 eggs or chicks per year. In addition to providing food source for a single family, these eggs and poultry can also be taken to market and sold, raising funds for medicine, school, clothing and more.
While chickens are not capable of sustained flight, they can get off the ground when needed. The longest flight of a chicken on record is an incredible thirteen seconds!
