World Vision Canada has a gift catalogue that allows you to purchase farm animals for families in underdeveloped countries. We found their catalogue to be a great way to raise money for this worthy cause. Students don’t want to just give cash, they want to know what their money is doing. We decided to purchase a dairy cow, because we are a rural school in cow country. The cows cost $600 each and our goal was to purchase one cow. We raised enough money to purchase two cows! It helped that one of our council members had access to a life-sized cow from her dad’s work. We placed it in the principal’s office along with lots of hay.
