This is a Worldbuilders Blog.
Okay. We’re back from the holidays, feeling refreshed, and ready to charge blindly back into the fray.
Well…. maybe not blindly. Boldly. Or bravely. That’s what we’re doing. We’re charging *bravely* back into the fundraiser.
Let’s start over.
This year, when we announced that Worldbuilders was accepting donations, we got an interesting offer from a resort out in California. They offered to donate stays at their posh hotel so we could auction them off and raise some money for Heifer International.
This is a bit of an experiment for us. And to be completely honest, I have no idea how well it’s going to work. It’s vastly different than the bookish things we usually put up for auction.
But the truth is, Rancho Las Palmas seems like a pretty great place to take a vacation, if you’re into sun, beaches, and that sort of thing.
So we’re giving it a try. I’d be obliged to y’all if you’d spread the word to anyone you think might be interested.
- Auctions: Six (6!) 2-night packages at Rancho Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage, California!
This package offers accommodations for two nights including daily breakfast for two at the bluEmber restaurant.
They’ve got a 29 hole golf course there, which seems like a lot to me, not that I know anything about golf. Not to mention tennis courts and… well, I’m sure if you’re curious, you’re fully capable of clicking a link to see for yourself what the place is like.
Keep in mind that this auction does not include any airfare or other transportation.
We have SIX packages up for auction, so you have lots of opportunity to win. Also, we’ve verified with the folks at Rancho Las Palmas, if you win more than one of the auctions, you can combine them into a longer stay. Or you could go with friends. Or you could use one room for sleeping in and the other for… y’know…. doing it.
These auctions will be ending in 10 minute intervals on Saturday, January 12th, so if you lose one… well, you can just outbid the other guy on the next one. Or the next one. Or the next one.
So enjoy that.
- Auction: 2-night *Suite* package at Rancho Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage, California!
This package offers suite accommodations for two nights including daily breakfast for two at the bluEmber restaurant, two (2) 50-minute spa treatments, and unlimited golf & tennis.
Take someone you love. Hell, take someone you hate, maybe you’ll love each other by the end of it.
Again, travel isn’t included in this. Just to be clear.
To bid on this swank vacation, head over here.

Stay tuned for more. Now that the holidays are over, we’ve got a lot to post before the end of the fundraiser on January 21st.
It’s worth remembering that for every $10 you pitch in on the Worldbuilders Team Page, you get another chance to win something cool.
