Brett Favre Jersey

Every year we run Worldbuilders, we seem to get one donation that’s really cool, but that comes out of left field.

Last year, it was the guitar signed by Creed. (Turns out Mark Tremonti and his brother are old-fashioned geeks.)

This year, we ended up with a Brett Favre Jersey signed by, well… Brett Favre.

This is a lovely donation from a reader whose brother plays for the Vikings. Even though it’s not the sort of thing we usually have up for auction, I was flattered when he offered to get hold of one for me. And I was sure it would bring in some extra money for the fundraiser.

So here it is:

  • Vikings Away Jersey. Signed by Brett Favre.

To see additional pictures and a more detailed description you can check out the auction over here.

Since this item is a little different than the things we normally auction off, I’d appreciate it if y’all could help me spread the word a bit.

And remember all money from these auctions supports Heifer International through Worldbuilders.

To see other auction items, or to learn more the combined power of ten thousand charitable geeks, you can check out the main Worldbuilders page here.

Stay tuned. More coolness on the way…

    Well, I tried to bid, but someone wants it much worse than I do.
    I tweeted the word on the jersey though.

    I bid a couple of times, but again, someone set their highest bid a bit higher than I have to spare at the moment. I’ll check back in a bit.

    Sorry guys. I’ve been a Favre fan for years and a Vikings fan for longer. Just don’t tell my wife how much I bid, okay?

    OK, I’m hoping not to have to bother Pat with an email, so if anyone can answer this for me I’d be SO grateful….

    I donated from the Worldbuilders page… but I didn’t get an email or anything confirming the donation, and the info I entered got messed up and didn’t “join” me to the “team.” The charge to my credit card just says “Heifer International,” so I’m at least happy with the fact that my money is going to to a fantastic cause, but I don’t know how to check that it’s being matched by Worldbuilders (or that I got entered into the lottery – which is less of a concern, considering the fact that the point is helping people get food, etc). Although, the prizes are effing badass, so I wouldn’t mind having my name in the drawing….

    I went back and “joined the team,” but had to enter $0 as my donation because I’m a poor student and can’t afford to donate twice (otherwise I SO would have just done that!).

    Any ideas on how I can confirm the fact that my donation is included in this awesome fundraiser??

      I did the same thing–made an independent donation instead of one to the team. I joined the team and donated again, and it added me to the list, but I had to double donate because of it. I’ve got to call them on Monday or Tuesday and get them to refund my first ‘independent’ donation.

      I’m glad I got to help out and donate some money to the team, but Heifer International sure don’t do a very good job of explaining which button does what. There’s three buttons on the WorldBuilder’s page at Heifer International, but only one of those buttons will let you donate to the actual team, and the other button makes an independent donation.

      Thankfully, I found out its possible for you to call “donation services” at Heifer International and have them transfer your donation to the team–I hope. They told me you’d have to wait until your donation is actually processed, and that will hopefully be by Tuesday.

      Hope that helps :).

    For those of us who are woefully ignorant of what sports are which, please could someone explain what the Vikings do ? I’m assuming it’s not a bunch of Larpers getting into a longboat and bashing seven kinds of snot out of some hapless Apaches or Sioux ( spelling here ? ) tribesmen ?

    So great to see sports connections to the world of Geek ! Being a rugby fan myself I am definitely in the minority when I try to ask my team mates what they are reading at the moment.

    Thanks Patrick for letting us all be involved in this amazing charity!

    I just shared the link on Facebook so all of my “friends” can see. If you get Pat’s feed on FB just share the link with your friends too.

    Love Favre, love the Vikings… love my wife – sadly I’m out of the running but I’ll spread the word!

    Now you guys have got me scared that my $10 donation didn’t actually enter me into the auction…

    I mean, I’m all for supporting Heifer, but I would like a chance all the stuff too. :)

    I’m not real good with computers (or the internet, honestly, it took me 20 minutes to get logged back in here, I’d forgotten my password and it took me *forever* to figure out how to get it back)–I thought that using the button on the Worldbuilders page (the one Pat linked in the original post) to donate would enter me in the auction too? Did I need to “join the team” first or something? I’m so confused now…

      When on the Worldbuilders page, you just need to click Donate to this team, you don’t have to join Pat’s team to be entered in the draw. There should be an email confirmation to whatever email you provide from Worldbuilders that you have donated.

        Okay it actually says “Give to this team” and it explains it on the top of the page, just make sure your on Worldbuilders 2010

      Yeah, as long as you get an email confirmation you should be fine! I just never got one and wasn’t sure how to confirm that mine went through. I got an error message, and then Heifer Int’l didn’t even recognize my email when I tried to log in. But then the charge still showed up on my credit card.

      Clearly I’m just technologically cursed.

    Technical question Pat,

    Is it ” zompocalypse ” or ” azombielypse ” ? I know if anyone can put this burning issue to rest it is the Bearded Master.
