Your birthday celebration will go on long after you've blown out the candles.

However you celebrate your birthday with Send a Cow, your gift will go on giving as families pass on what they learn to the rest of their community.

There are many ways you can fundraise for Send a Cow for your birthday; why not ask for gifts from our catalogue in lieu of presents this year, or if you're throwing a party why not ask guests to donate on your behalf, you can even set up a Birthday Fundraiser on Facebook.

Idea 1: Why not ask each loved one for a different animal or growing gift. You could have an entire farmyard of gifts for families in Africa.

Idea 2: Why not ask your loved ones to buy you a chicken each, creating your own flock. Each chicken can produce up to 200 eggs a year.

Idea 3: Ask everyone to chip in to buy a whole allotment - giving a community the chance to grow their own vegetables in a thriving garden.

Send a Cow | Josephine and John laughing

After 41 years of marriage and 6 children, Josephine and John from Uganda are able to eat regular, nutritious meals and feed their children and grandchildren thanks to Send a Cow. Learning how to keep a cow and grow vegetables from their land has been transformational for the whole family.

Today, Josephine and John plant and harvest a variety of nutritious crops. For Josephine, growing and eating these vegetables and drinking milk from their cow have been the most immediate benefits from the training and resources they’ve received from Send a Cow.

"The cow that was given to us, which has been generous with its manure, calved down recently and now we drink milk. We are growing younger each passing day. I sold surplus vegetables and was able to buy a phone. I also was encouraged to rear chicken where our grandchildren are able to get animal protein. We eat like kings. This is beyond our wildest dreams." -
