Be an Honorary Chick and Help the World!

Chicks Around the World!

Are you a silly chick at heart? Is your inner chicken yearning to let loose and join the coop? Well, here's your chance!

Starting now and continuing through Christmas, we are offering the title of Honorary Silly Chick to anyone who joins us on our quest. (And yes, we mean ladies AND gentlemen!)

But what, you ask, is our quest? To use chicken power to make the world a better place!

For only $20, the charity Heifer International will give a family somewhere on this globe a flock of chicks. Each starter flock has from 10 to 50 chicks. One flock gives a family in a developing country a much needed source of food and income.

Did you know that chickens:

  • lay up to 200 eggs in a year.

  • require little space.

  • thrive on readily available food scraps.

  • control insects & fertilize gardens.
  • Can make an enormous difference in a family's life?

And you thought chicks were just cute and silly!

Please join us in helping families from Cameroon to the Caribbean. Donate now and send a notification card to Or send us a copy of your receipt to as proof and we will name you an Honorary Silly Chick and give you a post on our website! (Note: The receipt does not contain any financial information!)

And if you're extra brave, send us a picture of yourself and we'll transform you into one very silly chick indeed! Also, tell us a little bit about yourself including these important items:
  • Your favorite Kids' book
  • A mad skill you possess
  • What snacks you'd like to bring to the coop! (Recipes welcome!)
Thank you for helping us spread Chicks Around the World!

I've been giving chicks and ducks (bees in the case of my vegetarian son) to loved ones for years. Heifer Project and Oxfam America ( are my two favorite charities. For people who don't like the idea of animal gifts I "get" tools or water purifiers from Oxfam. A bit of explanation: I "gave" my father a pig designated for Poland (he has relatives in Poland). He told me the people there didn't even have enough to eat and that having to feed the pig would be a burden--I guess he never bothered to read the accompanying information. I haven't sent him an animal since! :-( Thanks for letting more people know about Heifer Project. You chicks aren't so silly after all. --Diane

Three Silly Chicks,

Thank you for reminding me about this fantastic charity. In response to your post I decided to raise money for Heifer International at Thanksgiving dinner. My family donated $80.18 to the cause. Enough to buy 4 flocks of chicks!
