Willie the Pig

30 Paintings in 30 Days: September, 2014—Day 13

Meet Willie the pig. He is a resident at the Heifer Ranch in Arkansas. He loves eating and laying around in the barn. This angle was particularly difficult to paint, but getting his expression was worth the effort.

Pig gift donations are an excellent fit for some of the poorest families Heifer serves. Your donation not only supplies a pig for a family, it will also educate them in its care and feeding. Each donation of a pig:
• Produces as many as 16 piglets that can be sold for income 
• Creates a steady supply of organic fertilizer, increasing crop yields
By providing much needed protein and nourishment, a pig donation can help pull a family from under the crushing burden of hunger. And thanks to the income earned from selling the offspring, your gift of a pig has the power to uplift entire communities.

I hope you take a moment to visit the Heifer Internaitonal website and learn more about ending world hunger "The Heifer Way."
