Giddy-up, Jingle Horse!

November 30, 2021 - December 15, 2021

Pick up your feet!  It's the last day to jingle on over to Pat Rothfuss' end of year Worldbuilders fundraising event, and donate for the opportunity to change a person's life forever, and for your chance to win lovely lottery prizes.  If you've been a reader around here for a little while, you already know every year around this time I hype Pat's charitable efforts (in fact, I can't believe this is the eighth year I've been a part of this, read more here) on behalf of Heifer International because I've come to respect, and admire the organization in ways that completely eclipse my involvement with any other outfit.  Simply put, I believe in their work.  Pat REALLY believes in it, I mean just ask him, he will go off for hours detailing the minutiae of why Heifer's involvement with some of the poorest regions of our world is so awesome, and worth getting excited about, and super worth lending a hand to.  

Pat's passion is what truly sells this thing each year, the rest of us are just the messengers.  Because of the lack of major media attention on the merry-making mayhem, we've been left to our own devices, which means Worldbuilders has had to rely on word-of-mouth in the geek community, and still in just a two-week span, most years have seen totals of over a million dollars that go straight into Heifer International's purse to be put to immediate use helping people around the world who are living in peril.  For everything that Pat puts his hand to, I believe this is the man's true calling, and thanks to him, for a brief few weeks at the end of the year we get to be part of something special.

If you'd like to join in the festivities today, check out Pat's Twitch streaming schedule below, and come say hello!
