Good News Re: #Hoot2Give

Hey there, folks -- here's the deal: I teamed up with the good folks at National Wildlife Federation to raise money for the furry little critters. Last month, I asked folks on social media to #Hoot2Give. Each time someone used the hashtag on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest, I gave $1 to NWF (up to $5k).

In just a few days we had over 5,000 mentions -- and lots of bird photos, which my team and I really enjoyed. Here are a few of the bird photos that people sent in to #Hoot2Give:

Folks, thanks so much for being a part of #Hoot2Give and sharing all of your great photos, videos, bird facts and comments. #Hoot2Give wouldn't have been such a success without your good work.

NWF really has their boots on the ground and are doing real important stuff for wildlife, so I'm glad that we could help them out. It's just that a nerd's gotta do what a nerd's gotta do.
