Make me a heifer. For charity! I mean… That actually makes more sense than it sounds at first blush.

You’ve heard me talk about Pat Rothfuss’s Worldbuilders charity before. The basic idea is that the money you donate goes to Heifer International which “helps people raise themselves up out of poverty and starvation. Heifer promotes education, sustainable agriculture, and local industry all over the world. ”

Worldbuilders-Logo_Web_Smaller1One of the ways they do this is by helping families become more self-sustaining through the gift of goats, sheep, and chickens to families. And heifers. They break things down on the site to make it easier to visual exactly what your money is doing.

Heifer $500+
Water Buffalo $250+
Sheep or Goat $120+
Trees $60+
Flock of Chicks $20+

Here’s where you come in. I donated a tuckerization to Worldbuilders, which means that I’ll use your name in a novel or short story. So not only do you turn up in one of my books, but you also get to help out families in need. It’s a chance to be a geek and to use your geeky power for good.

At the moment the auction is at $420. I want to be a heifer.

Make me a heifer.

Edited: AS OF 5:07 PM the auction is at $1025.00 so I am officially two heifers. I don’t know who you are, but you are beautiful.

    MOOOOOOOOOO!

    Why do heifers cost twice as much as water buffalo? And are you also happy to be four water buffalo and a flock of chickens? (which is either a math story problem or a decent dowry through much of history)

    I name-drop Heifer International in the sequel to Sacred Blood. Sacred Honor is still in editing, but Heifer is staying in. It’s one of my favorite charities because it’s about helping families become self-sustaining instead of creating dependency on programs. Heifer rocks.
