Honor Dad with gift to Heifer

Honor Dad with gift to Heifer

Father’s Day is a day that we honor fathers for the important role they play in shaping their children’s lives and our society. Around the world, fathers have different lifestyles, parenting methods and challenges but they all want to provide happy and secure lives for their children. Heifer International, a charitable organization that works to end hunger and poverty, meets remarkable fathers everyday overcoming tremendous odds to provide the basic necessities to their children.

Sebastian Alvarado-Brizuela of Isletas, a father of four in Southern Honduras, suddenly became a struggling single parent after his wife abandoned their children while he was away working in another country. Their local economy did not provide sufficient job opportunities and he lacked the funds to improve his small farm to provide enough food and income for his family.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Consider this: Where would you turn for advice on assisting a loved one affected by Alzheimer's? How will your basic needs be met should your child become ill with cancer? What kinds of chemicals and additives are in your food -- and how is it affecting your health?

Do you know where to go to even get these answers?

Earlier this spring I was able to attend an event at War Memorial Stadium called "Little Rock Serves," which is sponsored by Create Little Rock, an arm of the Little Rock Chamber.
