Beatrice's Goat - Lenten Coin Drive

Just a reminder that we are participating in a Lenten Coin Drive in an effort to buy a couple of goats to be donated to families in need in Africa. So far we have collected over $70, the cost of one goat is $50. We are off to a terrific start!

To learn a little bit more about how a goat can help a family living in poverty, we read the story Beatrice's Goat. Please discuss this story with your child and let them teach you how receiving a goat changed Beatrice's life.

As a follow up activity, we watched this 60 Minutes interview with Beatrice Biira, the real life main character from Beatrice's Goat. Please take a few moments to watch and reflect on how your donation can make a tremendous difference for a family in need.
