Advice of the Day for December 4rh, 2009!

Good advice from Jenn yesterday. Holidays can be tough moneywise, but they can be even tougher for charities. So give a little this holiday season.

If you're looking for something to give to, Heifer International is a great group. And author Patrick Rothfuss is matching 50% of all donations made through the following webpage (last year he donated $58k). There are some other matching and topping up stuff going on there.

He's also got a bunch of fantastic prizes if you're an sf fan. And even if you're not, Heifer really is a great charity, and this is a way to make your money go far. (And if you win something, hey, there's a Christmas present for a nerdy friend).

Sorry for the long url, but it's worth it.

Here's some more info:
