5th Annual Heifer International Fundraiser!


It's that time of year! Yes, time for the annual Heifer International blog fundraising event where we raise money for a worthy cause and multiply the giving. And you can help too.

It's really simple. All you have to do is:

1) Leave a comment on this post AND/OR
2) Tweet a link to this post and include the hashtag #NBHeifer. Here's a tweet button for ya:



3) Click over to other participating blogs at the bottom of this post and leave comments there too
4) Make your own per-comment or tweet pledge and I'll link to you/tweet you!

To that end, if you want in on the fun and make a per-comment or tweet pledge on your own 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. (I recommend Rowfeeder for 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):

  1. For every comment someone makes in this post between now and 6PM Pacific time on December 24, I will donate $2.00. 
  2. For every tweet that includes a) the hashtag #NBHeifer and b) a link back to this post (http://bit.ly/1hahQbb) I will donate another $2.00. (up to $2,000 between the two) 

We can encourage everyone to stop by so we can multiply the giving! Over the past years we have raised over $7,000 together.

Thanks, everyone!

I am a long-time Heifer supporter, too. I hope your readers know that you can give gift cards and make donations in honor of people as holiday gifts. Give the gift of shared good feeds, as Nathan is doing!
