Listen up, 1%ers: Your Christmas fantasy gift awaits. Neiman Marcus' Heritage Hen Mini Farm offers a custom-made multi-level, "bespoke Versailles-inspired Le Petit Trianon" hen house with playground, nesting area, living room, library, chandelier and of course your very own "specially chosen flock," which kinda of makes them sound Jewish, but we digress. For just $100,000, with a teeny tiny sliver going to a Florida-based heritage livestock conservancy group. Let them eat eggs.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
