Can Worldbuilders Reach a Quarter Million?

By  |  4 Comments

I blogged a bit ago about the auctions I was a part of, but the Worldbuilders drive is still going. It’s coming to a close, however. Everyone who’s donated has pushed the total to an amazing $220,000 this year. Pat’s hoping to reach $250,000. A quarter million dollars. That’s just mind boggling to me. I’m very proud of everyone there, not only Pat, but Kat, Valerie, Taniya, and everyone working behind the scenes.

Take a look at the Worldbuilders page before it closes down this year and see if it’s something you’d like to donate to. It’s not only going to a cool charity, there are a ton (over 1,500) books being given away, plus other cool stuff.

Oh, and by the way, there are still a bunch of really cool auctions running, including auctions to be in a game run by Pat Rothfuss himself at StellarCon. Go check them out. There might be something you’d like!

    As I write this, the worldbuilders’ total was $253,197!

    They did it!

    Pretty damn cool.

    Did you read about Pat’s “Golden ticket?” One in the lottery and one for auction (currently at $4,400.15).

    Winner gets to ask Pat one “favour” …

    I wonder how high it will go before closing?

    Some very nice swag in the lottery too. Did you see that ARC of “Stardust?”

    Well, being a part of worldbuilders is definitely something to be proud of I think.

      Wow. That’s incredible. And still two and a half days to go. Yes, we should all be proud.

      I did see the golden ticket. He’s had that for a few years, and I always thought that was a really neat thing to offer up. This has all grown so quickly. I’m really proud of Pat and the crew for pulling this together. It’s something readers and writers and publishers are all starting to look forward to every year.
