Worldbuilders will host a two-week fundraising event for Heifer International from December 3 to December 17, 2019 to support its humanitarian efforts worldwide.
Stevens Point, WI (Merxwire) – Worldbuilders is a non-profit organization founded by New York Times best-selling fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss. He recently announced the 11th annual charity fundraising event.
The fundraising event will be held from December 3 to December 17, 2019. During the two-week fundraising event, all the funds will be provided to Heifer International to support its humanitarian work worldwide. Hope this world is better.
Founded eleven years ago by the Kingkiller Chronicles creator Patrick Rothfuss, Worldbuilders has raised more than $9.6 million for Heifer International. Last year, Worldbuilders gave away games, books, and other fabulous prizes.
Worldbuilders began simply, one day in the living room of Patrick Rothfuss. As his first novel, The Name of the Wind began to gather a fan base; he saw an opportunity to engage them to help others. He asked people to donate to Heifer International because he liked their philosophy of “teaching someone to fish.” To sweeten the pot, he offered signed books (first editions and out of print versions) and posters from his own world. It wasn’t long before other authors were donating books and other geeky prizes. It was incredibly successful.
According to Rothfuss, Worldbuilders does one thing: raise money for charities they respect that might otherwise get overlooked by the geek community. The Worldbuilders team is full of geeks, gamers, and book nerds, and people who tend to respect intelligent solutions–whether it’s a rock-solid magic system in a favorite fantasy series or an airtight game mechanic that’s easy to learn and offers amazing variety.
Donors will receive a chance to win awesome books, games, and other prizes. There will be auctions for prizes that role-playing gamers can use in their own games, rare collectibles, and plenty of stories to share.
Worldbuilders believe that people will always help others when given the chance. It’s their aim to give everyone that chance.
