Which is why I have become such a huge fan of Heifer International. See the so aptly titled, Heifer International post from my first fundraising effort here at From a Desperate Housewife for more info.
Or, you can even check out Heifer International on The Colbert Report. You might find Colbert more enlightening than the drivel I come up with here at From a Desperate Housewife. (Is that even how you spell drivel?) Anyway, I think it's a toss up on who will rot your brain more, Colbert or your friendly neighborhood Desperate Housewife.

I know that it is so wrong, but I love Colbert. I just cannot not love him, if that makes sense.
But with the fact that I sometimes have to dig through Kaydn Rye's piggy bank to scrounge up enough quarters for his gum and fruit snacks addiction, I'm not exactly looking to fund an entire third world country's hunger effort, but we all have something we can give. Like, you can give $20 towards a flock of chicks for a needy family, or $10 towards a pig, which will sustain and feed a family for generations.
Think about even making a donation in honor of your grandmother, mother, sister or friend for mothers day.
For everyone who makes a donation and lets me know in the comments at the bottom of this post, I'll enter your name in a drawing for my last C28.com gift certificate. C28.com has some really great stuff, go check it out.
And I guess we'll have the give away up through, oh let's say, the 3rd of May at midnight. I'll even enter you into the giveaway if you can post a comment at the bottom of this post about another way you know of that is combating hunger in the world right now. So, you have two ways to get yourself entered - donate or educate.
Oh, and you can check out Heifer's online catalog of all things farm animals at Meaningful gifts and make a donation.
