LITTLE ROCK, AR -- (Marketwired) -- Nearly 805 million people around the world don't have enough food to eat. As we prepare for the upcoming holiday season, Heifer International encourages shoppers to go beyond practical sharing and caring for the holidays by looking into an alternative giving option that can truly make a difference for a family in need. Since 1944, Heifer International has provided livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of those who struggle daily for reliable sources of food and income.

Heifer International is proud to share its Heifer for the Holidays 2014 public service announcement which puts a unique spin on the traditional holiday gift giving season. Together, Heifer's network of donors, partners and supporters, make change happen. One gift of livestock and training can help move a family beyond hunger and prove their power over poverty. Gifts to Heifer International go to families around the world living with hunger and poverty so that small-scale farming families can feed themselves and their communities, women who never had a voice will find one and become leaders in their communities and children can go to school and realize their dreams.

When you give a gift from Heifer International you're giving something big. Gifts like this create a lasting change in someone's life. It becomes more than a present; it's a gift for a better tomorrow. This holiday we encourage people to make their donations using "The Most Important Gift Catalog in the World."
