For those of you that know me, you know that I am a humanitarian. I am passionate about people and social justice. So when my friend Hannah told me that she was putting on a event to benefit Heifer International I was more than excited to be a part. Heifer is an amazing organization helping in a way that empowers people to help themselves by giving livestock. When you give livestock you not only provide food but a way to generate income as well so they get a hand up in life and not just a hand out. Please take the time to check out their site and get involved. They also have great resources for teaching children about poverty and sustainable development.This post would not be complete without first telling you how awesome Hannah is. She is the creative genius behind this event and after living in Austin such a short time I have no clue how she has so many connections and knows crazy amounts of awesome people. If I were doing my wedding all over again I'd hire Hannah to design it. I also want to give a big internet hug and shout out to all of the volunteers, sponsors, and bands. Check them out on the Hoedown website.
