Patrick Rothfuss (author of the amazing fantasy novel, The Name of the Wind), is hosting a fundraiser for his favorite charity, Heifer International.
In Patrick's words, Heifer "helps people raise themselves up out of poverty and starvation. All over the world Heifer promotes education, sustainable agriculture, and local industry.
They don't just keep kids from starving, they make it so families can take care of themselves. They give goats, sheep, and chickens to families so their children have milk to drink, warm clothes to wear, and eggs to eat."
Now through January 15, for every $10 you donate to Heifer through Patrick's page, you are entered into a drawing to win some awesome prizes. Subterranean Press has donated over 300 fantasy and science fiction books (some signed), and Patrick has donated signed copies of his own book, plus a couple of signed first editions and a galley. More prizes are being added daily as word about this spreads.
So hop on over to Patrick's announcement page and see if this is something you'd be interested in participating in. But with a chance to win some unbelievably awesome prizes while helping make the world a better place, why wouldn't you want to pitch in?
