  • Farmer Fund-amentals. Agricultural practices evolved over thousands of years, so new farmers have some catching up to do. Forget about teaching a person to fish—teach people to farm, and you'll equip them with valuable skills, as well as giving us a more expansive metaphor for sustainable success we can use in our future marketing materials!
  • Goats and ducks living together? Sounds like a recipe for quite a party. They spend their days producing wholesome, dairy-based gifts and nutrient-rich fertilizer for their owners, but their nights are full of gossip and makeovers.
  • Duck, Duck, Choose. In an uncertain world, you can count on ducks. They're here to help! As self-starters, they give eggs regularly and without complaint, and their fastidious nature minimizes upkeep costs. They hold up their end of the arrangement. Any incidental costs? Just put it on their bill.
  • Why did the chicken cross the road? If it's a chicken in one of our partner communities, it was probably in mid-celebratory strut, proud of its role as a delicious, egg-producing, income-generating asset to its owners. Outreach chickens always have great self-esteem, and they always look both ways for safety— no joke.
  • Endless Breakfast. With this gift, you'll sustainably end hunger for a family in need. Chickens provide the renewable resource of protein-rich eggs to help families grow strong and healthy.

  • Pretty In Pink! Three gifts in one! From their curly tails to their twitchy noses, pigs are uniquely suited to providing barnyard benefit. They represent a cost-neutral source of fertilizer, as well as an ever-fattening value at market. They're so ingenious, they even found a use for all that mud that would otherwise go to waste.
  • 4 Chickens + Champ the Chicken 4 Chickens + Champ the Chicken
    Hunting and pecking for just the right stuffed-animal pal? Open wide for Champ the Chicken! He's a fuzzy reminder of the good you represent, as well as your free gift when you buy four chickens from our catalog. This purchase includes a plush toy chicken named Champ, who measures 4" long from feet to beak.
  • No, not a "care package" for animals, mailing a batch of cookies to beasts of burden from back home—an "animal care" package, for people! This year, provide a suite of vaccines, wellness clinics and thorough instruction for new animal owners to help them best care for their animals. If the animals are well-behaved, they might get some cookies, but we're not promising anything.
  • Keep animals cozy, dry, and safe, so their owners can keep them happy, healthy, and profitable. It's not just an animal house, it's an animal home.
  • Have a Rice Day. A bag of rice can be the only thing that separates a family from an empty pantry during seasonal stretches between harvests. Help minimize the worry, stress, and negative health effects of chronic hunger, keep our partners healthy, and allow for the simple pleasure of families gathering to share a meal each day.
  • Sure, you can save some money building a house out of sticks or straw. But for real, lasting shelter, you're gonna want to invest in something more resistant to heat, cold, rain, and the huffs and puffs of pushy wolves. Just like all of Outreach's work, the right materials, expertly applied, last a lifetime.
  • Saved by the Bell. Take any kid, suit 'em up in a school uniform, toss in a backpack full of books, notebooks, pencils, and other supplies, and presto, they're all set for a fruitful day at school, whether they like it or not.
  • Dish It Out. Bring families together and help them fill their tummies with nutritious, home-cooked meals, while they fill their hearts with memories of the time they spend together.
  • Plates and forks and stoves, oh my! Parents prepare hot meals on smokeless stoves, kids avoid the respiratory and vision issues associated with exposure to smoke, and everyone gets a place at the table to enjoy one another's company. Dig in!
  • Tool Time! Help a family literally put a roof over their heads, build stronger foundations, and see things in a new light with the addition of a short-term home-improvement loan to empower residents—repairs and the addition of modern amenities such as electricity or plumbing. With enough care, every house feels like home.
  • Trees are models of generosity in the natural world. Here, have some shade. How about some wood you can sell at market or use for heating and cooking? Plenty you can do with these leaves! Might as well make this air cleaner and sweeter, too. Trees show all the other plants what it's like to be better than bush league.
  • They Can Dig It. If you're a farmer, you're going to need some tools if you plan on growing more than weeds and ferns. Outfit a farmer with shovels, rakes, pitchforks, hoes, and a litany of other instruments to make the soil sing.

  • The Gifts that Keep on Goating!'Everyone loves goats for their gentle, curious nature and sweet widdle faces.

  • Let's Plants. Gardening might seem like a solitary affair, but it's really a partnership between a person and a plant. Some vegetables and herbs need a little extra attention when it comes to maintaining their climate. A greenhouse helps coax them from seed to bloom to a healthy new component of every meal.
  • Espress Your Support. HopeBlend's crisp citrus flavor is complemented by delicate, full floral notes, finished with a light, sweet, caramel-apple body, made from beans sourced in Asia, Africa, and Central America, all blended by The Roasterie, a Kansas City-based company. It's 10 ounces of whole-bean, Fair Trade Certified inspiration, and part of the proceeds goes directly to Outreach. Take a mighty, empathetic swig of it from your mug every morning, and feel the jolt of all the good for which you're responsible. Powerful stuff.
