Today is the birthday of the most wonderful cowherd boy, Krishna. He is glorified and worshipped by devotees worldwide as the merciful God who spent his childhood herding, protecting, and loving cows. Charitable acts on this day, especially to cows, bestows significant spiritual benefits upon the giver. ISCOWP’s Feed the Cows campaign is launched today In honor of Lord Krishna’s Birthday. ISCOWPs Matching Gift Challenge was launched August 1. Any donor who gives today for the cows will not only have his gift matched dollar for dollar but can also feed the cows and receive the benefits of giving in charity to the cows on this most special day.
Matching Gift Challenge
The Matching Gift Challenge started on August 1, given by an anonymous ISCOWP member, will match every donor’s gift up to a total of $25,000. So when $25,000 is given to ISCOWP the challenge is over. We are now just at the beginning of the challenge and will be announcing the milestones of the challenge on our Donations page and e-newsletters.
Feed the Cows
We start the Feed the Cows Campaign around this time every year because this is the time of year we purchase hay to feed the cows during the colder months. Due to climate change, we will be purchasing more hay, 250 large bales. The last two Springs have been drier longer than usual. The weather use to always be dry here in the Spring but it did not last as long. Both Springs we had to feed out more hay than usual and consequently we had to buy it from other suppliers who charged more for less quality. So now we feel the best thing to do is purchase more hay from our usual supplier, our neighbors, Misty Morning Hounds. In the long run, we are utilizing your donations more efficiently.
