Virtual Christmas with the Kids

I caught back up with all of the episodes of Geek I had been so behind. One fun thing that Cali Lewis has done is created a site called iYule where you can buy and download a beautiful crackling fireplace.

There are quite a few versions of the iYule Log.

iYule Log for standard players

iYule Log for widescreen players

iYule Log music-free edition

iYule Log for TV & computers

iYule Log, The Complete Album

Now you might be asking yourself, why sell a 30 minute podcast of a crackling fireplace and beautiful music? Well for one thing there are plenty of DVD’s and VHS tapes out there that you can use to watch a fireplace on your TV. So now with people having many different portable media players why not have a fireplace for those as well. A crackling fireplace invokes a feeling of home so why not have that feeling with you everywhere.

This project is a collaboration between Cali Lewis and her husband Neal, Geoff Smith, and Paul Colligan, they are donating money from a portion of the proceeds of sales of the iYule Log to three charities. They are some pretty cool ones too. Geoff chose the Songs of Love Foundation, a charity that provides personalized songs for chronically and terminally ill children and young adults. Paul chose LitLiberation, the largest online literacy experiment in history. Neal and Cali chose Heifer International, a non-profit that helps families in poverty by giving them valuable live animals to provide eggs, milk and farming help.

I think these are great charities and will be buying my own version of the iYule Log for my iPod.
