I am joining in on the fun of One World One Heart. Lisa started this back in 2007 and each year it just gets bigger and bigger! Here is what Lisa says on her blog about the event:
WHAT IS ONE WORLD ONE HEART?
The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. 2007 had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong.
We had a strong showing the first year for sure, and then in 2008 we had just about tripled that number. In 2009 there were 911 participants, to say I was amazed is an understatement. 28 countries were represented in the 2009 event as well.
This is more than wanting to win something.......that is only the means.......in the end it's about finding kindred spirits. Someone who may be fairly new to blogging, not sure how to navigate, find others and have others find them....Some are long time bloggers and in some cases well known in the blogging community. Whatever the case it brings all of them together. This is an INTERNATIONAL event that has and had participants from the US, Canada, France, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England,Wales, Slovenia and more. It transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, religious beliefs......it's a coming together like the giant community we are on this planet. If only it took a simple giveaway to create PEACE everywhere, in the mean time here we give from our hearts. We are not solving the worlds problems nor are we curing anything nor are we changing the world. We are merely generating a closer community between humans through blogging. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become.
As for me, I have been thinking and thinking about what I would offer as a prize. Since I am a scrapbooker, my prize will be scrapbooking related. I am going to give away these tags to a lucky person who will be able to use them in their art.
and to the winner of these tags I will include an 8x8 scrapbook for you to be able to create your own pages AND I will also include paper and embellishments!!!
All you need to do to win my prize is leave a comment to this posting on my blog. Also leave your e-mail address or your blog so that I can contact you if you are the winner! On February 15, I will choose a winner through random.org. I will announce the winner here on my blog and also contact the winner via e-mail or blog. The winner will have 48 hours to respond or I will choose another winner.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
