Heifer International is my favorite charity. It helps people raise themselves up out of poverty and starvation. Heifer promotes education, sustainable agriculture, and local industry all over the world.
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.
In order to celebrate reaching a $500,000 stretch goal recently, Neil Gaiman agreed to read Green Eggs And Ham. Yes. That Green Eggs And Ham, the Dr. Seuss one.
Mr Gaiman reads a mean kids’ book. Damn.
