A Wish and a Request for the Season

I wasn’t planning on doing too much blogging between now and 12/31, but author and former agent Nathan Bransford’s “annual blog fundraising goodness” for one of my favorite charities, Heifer International (you’ll see I wrote about it on my business blog last month), was just too hard to pass up.

Heifer works at ending world hunger by giving struggling communities the means to sustain themselves. Think a mess of chickens to lay eggs. Goats and cows for milk and meat. Bees for honey. You get the idea.

So, here’s what you do. Tell me your favorite holiday movie or tune in the comments below. For every legit comment I get (spammers selling credit cards, Viagra, Rolexes, etc need not apply), I’ll donate $1 to Heifer International. Like T.H. Mafi (seriously, read her blog), I’m not going to worry about limits until I get to the point where I won’t be able to afford the rent and feed the cat. So have at it.

You have until 9 a.m. on Thursday.

Thanks, and may you all have a magical holiday and a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2011. 🙂
