Honorary Silly Chick - Peggy Reiff Miller

Hurray for our new Honorary Silly Chick, Peggy Reiff Miller. Peggy has an especially interesting connection to Heifer International. She has researched the start of the Heifer Project, written a book and produced a DVD about the Seagoing Cowboys who were the men who helped deliver animals to Europe after World War II, including some chicks!(Part of the profits from the DVD go to Heifer International!)

Peggy likes Skippyjon Jones by Judy Schachner and is bringing some home-dried fruit (as sweet as candy) to share in the coop!

As for mad skills? Peggy has mad researching/documenting skills when it comes to the Seagoing Cowboys!

We want to thank Peggy for also bringing two new children's books to our attention. Both are about Heifer International and how this great organization can make a difference! Thanks Peggy for becoming an Honorary Silly Chick and bringing these great stories to our attention!

Beatrice's Goat by Page McBrier about a girl in Africa who receives a goat from Heifer and how it changes her world.

Give a Goat by Heifer founder Dan West's daughter Jan West Schrock about a fifth grade class that raises money for a goat and makes a difference.
