Worldbuilders 2011 – the Amazing Patrick Rothfuss Fundraiser for Heifer International

In short, head on over to Pat’s page and have a read. Not only is he a great writer of two rather epic fantasy books (The Name of the Wind being the  first) and a funny guy, he’s got a heart of gold.

For several years he’s been running this fundraiser, offering fabulous prizes for donations – including some wonderful ones and also some wonderfully geeky ones too. Many are books, first or rare editions donated by Pat and a host of other authors – things like signed Neil Gaiman books and heaps, heaps more stuff.

On top of this, he also matches 50% of the donations raised. So far, they’re up to $234,000 which is impressive indeed.
