“What a blessing! Thank you for reaching out to Arkansas, to help so many families hit by disasters this year. With your help we have distributed over 114,000 pounds of food and supplies to disaster victims.” – Arkansas Rice Depot, Little Rock, AR

“I know that our families and staff have already been reaping the benefits of the garden – I was able to take home some yummy spinach a couple weeks ago…Thanks for that!!” -- The Bethesda Team, Bethesda school and orphanage, South Africa

“ I would like to thank you for the $1,000 scholarship I received. I am the fifth generation to work on our family farm…I am proud to carry on the legacy of college graduates with an agriculture degree. My ultimate career plan is to work alongside my father and brother on the family farm.” -- Reese Morris, 2012 FamilyFarms Charities scholarship recipient

“Tim and I are humbled by the very generous donation to Life’s Heart. More important is the many Kenyan families who will be blessed with clean water and food/crop production!
