Watch Neil Gaiman Recite Jabberwocky in the Woods
Neil Gaiman is a longtime supporter of Worldbuilders, a charity that in turn supports Heifer International. (Basically, fans of various authors pledge to Worldbuilders, money goes to Heifer, and fans get cool stuff from authors.)
In February, Gaiman set out a $500,000 funding goal and ended up reading Green Eggs and Ham shortly after it was met. So the goal was bumped to $600,000. You can guess what happened next.
Worldbuilders let people who donated money to them vote on what I would read if they hit $600,000. They did reach that goal, and they voted. It was between Goodnight Moon, Fox in Socks, Where the Wild Things Are and Jabberwocky. Jabberwocky won. So I got up this morning and headed, sleep-bleary, out into the woods to record myself reciting it... You can donate to Worldbuilders at worldbuilders.org. And you should.
Also notable, Hank Green covers "Shake It Off" in an angry/angsty manner for the $575,000 goal.
