The Goat Brand, a custom clothing line in Cleveland Ohio specializing in hats and t-shirts, is pleased to announce a partnership with Heifer International to provide goats to families in need in some of the world's poorest areas.
The Goat Brand donates part of each sale to Heifer to fund the gift of goats to families throughout the world, from Arkansas to Zimbabwe. Consumers purchasing Goat Brand hats, t-shirts, or custom apparel products can also make a donation directly to Heifer during the checkout process.
A family that receives a goat gets comprehensive training from Heifer to prepare them in every way to take adequate care of and integrate this goat into their lives. As an economic asset, goats provide families with food and nutrition, as well as a sense of stability.
To maximize the gift, the family receiving the goat must pass on the first-born female offspring to another needy family in the community. They likewise pass on the education and training they received from Heifer to the new family. The initial family turns into a donor, creating a sense of accomplishment, dignity, and teamwork.
The Goat Brand believes that the economic effect of giving a goat to a family far outweighs the cost of the goat. Heifer International has estimated that the gift of a goat transforms “a once impoverished family into full participants who improve and strengthen the bonds within their communities.”
Throughout 2017, the Goat Brand will engage in contests and events designed to raise additional funds with the objective of giving away more goats and supporting more families throughout the world.
