John Custer's sixth grade social studies class at the Tisbury School (pictured here) raised $672.76 for the Heifer International project. Mr. Custer said, "During our study of world geography this year, we used many resources from Heifer International and learned about this organization's meaningful work. The students' efforts will go far in improving the lives of many people around the world."

According to their web site, Heifer International's mission is to end hunger and care for the earth. The organization gives families a source of food rather than short-term relief. Heifer International is in 128 countries around the world.
