November 24, 2017, Mississauga, Ont. – World Vision Canada and Burnbrae Farms are once again giving Canadians the opportunity to provide families with hens, roosters and eggs this holiday season.

For the sixth year, Burnbrae will match every Hens and Roosters gift purchased from World Vision’s Gift Catalogue (up to $10,000).

According to the company, the average hen provides up to 300 eggs per year, meaning the partnership has provided families around the world with approximately one million nourishing eggs to date.


What’s more, it has the potential of putting another 240,000 eggs in the hands of children and families in developing countries this coming year.

As with other development programs that World Vision leads around the world, families that receive livestock gifts from the Gift Catalogue receive training on how to care for the animals, keep them healthy, and create a sustainable income as part of the gift.

“We are thrilled to be continuing this amazing partnership with World Vision,” Margaret Hudson, president, Burnbrae Farms, said in a press release.

“Making a difference is a top priority of Burnbrae Farms and knowing that we’ve played a role in a million eggs reaching children and their families in developing countries is incredible,” Margaret Hudson, president, Burnbrae Farms, said in a press release.
