One world – One heart!


Whilst surfing yesterday I came across this site, http://oneworldevent.blogspot.com/2008/01/this-years-event-information.html

I think it is a worthwhile cause, and worthy of promotion, but though I am gift-card-2.jpggoing to try and particpate, I think I have already got confused in my hurry to produce something to give away! Anyway, here’s Lisa’s notes…she can explain far better than me.

‘I created this event in 2007. 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. Last years event had roughly 85-90 participants and many connections were made because of it……friendships that are still going strong a year later.
We had a strong showing the first year for sure, and now this year(2008) we have just about tripled.
This is more than wanting to win something…….that is only the means…….in the end it’s about finding kindred spirits. Someone 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 art 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. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become. This year I created this blog especially for OWOH – it will remain up all year and beyond.
My heartfelt thanks go out to all who chose to board the Love Train.

    Thank you Connie. It was great fun visiting all those blogs, and I fully intend returning to read them all properly. I’m gradually adding to my blogroll, but it will probably take until next years event to get through them all, but a very enjoyable past-time.
    I love the name of your blog, by the way! Yes, I think I will certainly have made new friends along the way. I hope you have too. Thank you for stopping by again. It’s good to see you, and I will be visiting you again very soon.
    Hugs, Susie.
