#248: Heifer, anyone?

For today’s awesomeness, I joined literary-stuff blogger  http://blog.nathanbransford.com/ who is pledging $1 for every comment on his blog, giving it to the charity http://www.heifer.org/. Any charity that gives people a goat* is one I like.

I’ll be giving $1 for every blog comment from this instant until Christmas Eve (up to $500, to be paid in January, when CJ and I are back to buying groceries and such again).

And I haven’t forgotten I promised to review Scott Westerfeld’s “Leviathan” and “Behemoth” YA steampunk books, either.

On Christmas Eve, I’ll be posting my sarcastic Christmas letter – with pictures this time.

And I fully intend to climb a tree this week, for “Secret Squirrel”. Wish me luck. . .

  1. Charity gifting is a wonderful thing. I saw an excellent post on another blog last week that suggested that for those people you buy gifts for that turn up their noses (be it too cheap, not what they wanted etc) – next year buy them a chicken from Oxfam. The gift that makes you feel great and yet gives them nothing at all 😀

  2. Who doesn’t like goats? I’d love to have one in the back yard. Maybe he’d keep my dog out of trouble. Good on you for the charitable giving. We’ll see how it goes, eh? (I’m another fellow playing along on Nathan’s blog).

    1. Nick: No, but that was a really cool article! There’s been a major flood (natural disaster zone, but no-one hurt) in Canberra’s satelite city this month, so I’ll be avoiding storm drains.

  3. Thanks for doing this – and Yay Heifer!

    Cool blog. 🙂 Happy Holidays to you and your family. Stay warm! 🙂

    1. Thanks Mira! It should be easy staying warm over here in the Southern Hemisphere, so consider it done.

    I choose to only comment a little – I don’t want to break your bank too much. 😛

    (Yes, I considered a commentblanket).

    1. Don’t worry about the comments W – CJ and I had already decided to give away a certain amount. Heifer just happened to happen at the right time.

    1. Hi erica and christy – since there’s two of you, I’ll just have to count you twice.

    1. Andi: You’re not too late. Actually I’ll be extending the Heifer-ness until the new year.
