Chickens provide nutritious meals through eggs and meat, and they also provide a way to make money. But what you’re about to see are no ordinary chickens – these are Twitter chickens, made possible by the first 2,200 ChildFund followers on Twitter back in July.
As part of the Twitter campaign, we promised to send items from our Gifts of Love and Hope catalog to areas that needed them the most – for every 200 followers to sign up during the campaign, a gift would be given from an anonymous donor, who was willing to contribute above the usual donation. One of those gifts was a set of chickens for a community in The Gambia.
