Help raise funds for Heifer International
WHAT KIDS CAN DO - acts of kindness, acts toward making things right for people and the earth. During Lent, we would like to make a special effort to help all God's people and God's earth and invite others to help also.
Through Heifer International, we want to provide a family with bees, a box and hive, plus training in bee keeping. This will help families earn income for necessities including medicine through the sale of honey and beeswax. When placed strategically, beehives can as much as double some fruit and vegetables yields through natural pollination. In this way, a beehive can be a boost to a whole village. Cost $30.

Trees enrich the soil and clean the air we breathe. Through training, families learn how to keep their small plots of land healthy and renew the soil for future generations by planting trees, using natural fertilizer and limiting grazing. Cost $60.

In the next week, look for an information booth in the church’s gathering area and a chance to learn more about this venture. If you would like to add to our effort, you may contribute. Make checks payable to Bainbridge Community UCC with notation for Heifer International Bees and Trees.
