Worldbuilders 2013 Fundraising Drive: Six Days to Donate

Thumbs Up

Author Patrick Rothfuss has been raising money for Heifer International through his charity fundraiser, Worldbuilders, since 2008. Patrick explains in this video how Heifer works:

The 2013 drive is nearly over, but there’s still six days to donate. And how could you not: Money is being raised for a good cause, and many passionate SF/F people have donated their time or goods to make the drive more interesting.

I’ve been following the stretch goals with interest since they’re such a hoot. My absolute favorites are Peter Orullian’s heavy metal version of “Ballad of Serenity” (by Joss Whedon) with lyrics retooled for Worldbuilders, and John Scalzi’s acoustic But Not Tonight (by Depeche Mode; a long-time favorite of mine, as it happens). Both are such great cover versions of great songs. (Insert a fan squee!)

So, if you have ever considered donating to Heifer, or want to have a chance at winning SF/F loot, or want to be a part of making the world a better place, now’s a good time.

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
