ONE WORLD ONE HEART - FREEBIE TO GIVE AWAY




ONE WORLD ONE HEART was created by Lisa Swifka as a venue to bring bloggers from around the world together who may never have ordinarily met. Not only do we get to visit with new and wonderful people, but we even have a chance to win some prizes along the way.

The event started on 25th January so I am a couple of days behind, but here is how it works.  I am giving away one very unusual item - a set of two boxes made from recycled elephant poo......  They measure a cute 6cm square, (just over 2 1/4" in old money), and 3cm tall (just over an inch), and feature an elephant on the top.  No I didn't make these, but when I saw them I couldn't resist using them as my freebie.

To stand a chance of winning, all you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post.  Winner will be drawn at random after the closing date of 15th February.  I will post worldwide.  Remember that I need a way to contact you if you are the winner.

For more information about One World One Heart visit here

Good luck.

Unusual things are actually sometimes the neatest. Hip Hip Hooray for unusual. I'd loe a chance at winning the boxes made of "poo." It's ok that you didn't make them, but I wish you had. That way I could have asked what I'm dying to know "How does one take "poo" and create something from it?" Hee Hee, guess I'll just sit and wonder. Thanks for participating in the OWOH event.
