6th Annual Heifer International Fundraiser


It's that time of year!

This is the sixth year in a row for this Heifer fundraiser, and while I haven't been the best about posting lately we can still join together to raise money for a great cause, amrite?

Here's how this works. 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 your pleasure:



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!

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).

Heifer International is an organization that fights hunger by giving families around the world 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/1wB6KpE) 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 $9,000 together.

Thanks, everyone!

Love your big heart, Nathan Bransford (and this organization.)! I've been a fan of Heifer for years. It's so funny, every time I donate I always feel like I'm "adopting" whichever animal I'm donating. In my head, it's a total Animal Farm situation and the whole world's okay with that. Happy Holidays! :)

Whenever I have a cheeseburger, I think about how amazing the cow is, that it provides its own topping!

commenting, commenting. you need more comments! and goats are awesome. and ducks have claws on their feet. and rabbits can really hurt when they bite. and my favorite girl scout cookie is the peanut butter patty (also called a tagalong). and I'm feeling too lazy to capitalize. and i miss nathan blogging more often but i understand that life gets busy and blogs aren't as big. and sometimes i am legitimately sad that the members of arcade fire on not my best friends. merry christmas and happy new year and all the other pagan inspired holidays!

I think my family's donated to them in the past.

Just realized I left my earlier comment on last year's post, so here's one for this year.
I'll be donating to Heifer also.

I LOVE Heifer International! When my son was 10, he gave me the gift of a chicken for Christmas. Best. Present. Ever. Since then, it's become my go-to place for last minute gifts. Cheers and happy holidays.

I love Heifer. This is wonderful. We buy these every year as gifts, but this year we bought them for (almost) everyone on our holiday list. Thank you for hosting this. Have a beautiful holiday.
