Woo hoo! Time for our annual Heifer International blog fundraising goodness where we spread the cheer for an incredibly worthy cause and try to multiple the giving.
All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment on this post OR tweet a link to this post (http://bit.ly/V78KCz) and include the hashtag #NBHeifer to help raise money for a great cause. Then click over to the other participating blogs at the bottom of this post and do the same thing.
And, better yet, to multiply the giving, if you want in on the fun you can do a per-comment pledge on your own blog! It can be any amount, from ten cents to a million dollars. Totally up to you. Just leave a comment with a link to your blog post or tweet announcing your pledge or e-mail it to me and I'll feature it in this post. (Let me know if you need help tracking your hashtag).
You may have already heard of Heifer International, an organization that works to fight hunger by giving needy families around the world and in the United States livestock, training, or other assistance that helps improve their livelihood. Heifer has been recognized for its work in Fast Company and Forbes, among other places.
If you have anything to spare this holiday season I hope you'll consider making a donation. And in order to encourage people to spread the word about this worthy cause, there are two ways to help increase the giving love (and feel free to do both):
- For every comment someone makes in this post between now and 6PM Pacific time on December 24, I will donate $2.00.
- For every tweet that includes a) the hashtag #NBHeifer and b) a link back to this post (http://bit.ly/V78KCz) I will donate another $2.00. (up to $2,000 between the two)
