Heifer Update & artcile on me

 

Hello Friends, Family & Fans,
 
My volunteer efforts for Heifer expanded this year when I was chosen to sit on their Golden Talent Award Selection Committee.
 
The five member committee read about 30 entries from around the world, and then nominated those we felt deserved special recognition for having worked with Heifer to bring their family out of poverty & for their continued dedication to the Heifer mission in their community. 

A cash award of $1,000 is provided by Heifer International Foundation. $800 is for the winner's project group or community and $200 is designated as a cash gift or in-kind gift to the family or individual who earned the award.

I loved being a part of this Award and found the nominees stories one of inspiration and strength.

I also worked on a number of other Heifer efforts, including staffing information booths at various community fairs, chairing an auction component of their Los Angeles 70th anniversary party, working their annual Beyond Hunger Event and participating in their Los Angeles Volunteers Group.

This year I expanded my personal fundraising efforts from April, May & June to January through December.

My goal was to raise $25,000 for our Armenian Women's Project.  Today we are at $30,426! Thank you dear people!

I am currently being featured on the Heifer website. To read the story click the link below.

I am in the process of making a deeper commitment to the Heifer mission by joining the newly formed SoCal Heifer Core Group dedicated to establishing and funding a Heifer project for the next 5 years.

Our second meeting is in January where we will look at Heifer's work and needs in Vietnam having done the same study of Uruguay last month.

I will write you again in the New Year to tell you about my/our next phase of spreading the Heifer mission to end hunger and poverty while protection the earth.

My thanks and gratitude to each of you for your continued dedication and support of me and Heifer International. 

Happy Thanksgiving,

 
Marianne
