Only ONE DAY remains to help Kurt Braunohler raise enough money to provide 500 goats and 1,000 chickens to African families in need. Four days to raise just less than $18,000. One day to have him send you a personalized tweet. One day to possibly get a 30-minute Google Hangout with him dressed in a chicken suit. But only if you donate!

The comedian, who was a regular on Chelsea Lately and can be seen or heard on Bob’s Burgers, @midnight, Delocated and Comedy Central Presents, launched a fundraiser for Heifer International back in May. You may remember it: he jet-skied from Chicago to New Orleans. He called it the dumbest way to make the world a better place.  

You've missed the chance to have him marry you and your significant other, and to name his jet-ski, but there's plenty of time to ensure families in Africa are provided with the gift of an animal that could change their lives.

Go visit his Indiegogo page and give what you can. The best news is that you'll still be helping even if he surpasses his goal. All money in excess of $50,000 will go to a TBD charity to help clean up the Mississippi River, and all money above $100,000 will be split between Heifer and the Mississippi River charity. 

Stay tuned to the web series that documented his journey down the mighty Mississip, Roustabout
What are you waiting for? You've only got ONE DAY to have your name whispered into the ear of a goat before it's sent to its new home in Africa!
