It is such a special occasion and so important to the village community who will receive the cow. They will be able to use the milk produced to not only feed their family, but to sell the milk to make an income. This also benefits the whole village community. A very special ceremony takes place to bless the cow and all those who have contributed to giving it.
She is a very beautiful cow, with a gorgeous little calf.
The ceremony was amazing... I had the honor to wash the cows tail, paint her sides, head and spine with turmeric and kumkum, put flowers on her back, and feed her bananas. It was very special for me to do this on behalf of Help-A-School Foundation. I was so very proud that students had raised the money to offer this cow and calf to a family in India.
To everyone who contributed... You should all be very very proud of yourselves for caring so much about others in need across the world.

With much gratitude and joy
