Patrick Rothfuss' Heifer International Fundraiser

This from Rothfuss' blog:

What's that you say? You'd like to make the world a better place while simultaneously winning fabulous prizes?

Well today is your lucky day.

Heifer International is my favorite charity. It helps people raise themselves up out of poverty and starvation. All over the world Heifer promotes education, sustainable agriculture, local industry, and clean water.

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.

Please check out Pat's post for all the details. What it comes down to is that the author will match the amount donated by fans who wish to support this cause. His objective is to raise 30,000$, and they already have over 21,000$ in the bank.

And for every 10$ you donate, you get a chance to win one of the many cool prizes donated by both Patrick Rothfuss and countless SFF authors.

The fundraiser ends on December 11th, so check it out now!

I trust him when he said he's done the research, but I've previously heard this sort of charity remains controversial. There's some uncertainty about whether giving families animals is really the best way to help them; in some instances it's just not practical.
