Heifer for the Holidays

Remember our library-lovin' blog challenge? (I included the link just in case you don't!) My agent, Nathan Bransford, is currently running a similar challenge to benefit Heifer International.

The challenge is today-only, and this is impromptu, but I'm joining in. I'll also donate $1 per comment on my blog for the first 50 unique commenters (no 50 comments from the same person!).
EDITED TO ADD: Since I exceeded my goal in the allotted time, I decided to give $1 per comment for ALL the comments, and then round up. So you inspired me to donate $60 total! Which I did through Patrick Rothfuss's Team Heifer page, where there was a matching donation.

My challenge is now closed, but several people are still raising money, so you can still help!
This costs you nothing. If the spirit moves you, please do any or all of the following:

Go to Nathan's blog (I provided the link above); his own comment challenge is closed, but he has the list of all the other participating blogs, many of whom will have their challenges open for days to come.
Visit those other blogs listed at his post and leave comments there. Make them donate too! You have the power! ;-D
If you're still inspired to do more, spread the word about this via Twitter, Facebook, and whatever magical elves you may know who spread information.

This also won't be the last challenge you see from me: I'm planning to do a mini-library-challenge during my launch week in January, and then we'll reprise the big library-lovin' blog challenge later in the spring.

Well played!

Ah, bravo for following along. A lovely idea, this, and so much more inspiring than stampeding around the outlet mall.

Jen - thanks for doing this. I love Heiffer International's work and am looking forward to reading your book!
"Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; you have fed him for a lifetime."

We are lucky enough to live near to a Heifer farm (Rutland, MA) and have supported the farm and its parent organization for years. We bought meat raised at the farm for the first time this year, including our Christmas lamb.

Thank you for all you do to spread good in the world, Jenn!
Go you! How nice of you to help others. :)
If I can help just by leaving a comment, whyever not?
This is a great idea!

P.S. I love HI so much I even wrote them into Whisper. :-)
Fabulous idea. I hope you get your 50 comments.
Happy Holidays!
You guys are fabulous for doing this :D
This is one the most amazing ideas for a charity so hopefully this comment dollar will contribute to a flock of chicken for a village, or a cow, or a goat or...many other wonderful ways Heifer International is fighting poverty.

BTW you are awesome, go Jenn...it's your birthday...we're gonna party like it's your birthday...

Glad to see you doing this, Jenn! I hope you have very happy holidays! I think I'll follow your lead with this--we have given to Heifer in the past but fallen away from it unfortunately. This serves as a great reminder!
