Giveaways, Contests yay!

Well no i’m not doing a giveaway or a contest, but hey it’s a thought for the future. My personal blog is just that a personal online diary for myself. If anyone reads it great, and if not so be it. Although I do post to my other two websites, because I like to keep them active. But the reason for the title is, that I read one of my friends tweets on Twitter, and I thought to myself, that is exactly what I feel. It was basically saying that the person wa really into contests and all.

I am too into them suddenly, I don’t know maybe I am feeling a lucky streak? Perhaps.

Well just recently I won two contests, and I think it was about two months ago I won another. So it’s pretty exciting. I remember the last time I won a giveaway on a website, was while I was in England. I won a book, it was so much fun, I loved the book but when I moved back to the US I had to leave it behind and hoped my friend would post it to me. Well needless to say, that was sold along with my film collection which upset me pretty bad. I won’t even get into that, or this will be a drawn out rant lol.

So as for contests, I have recently got into the Zagg contest, where they are giving away stuff during the 12 weeks of Christmas,. so the first week it’s 12 things, then the 11th week its 11 things, and 10th week 10 things and so on. As it goes along the prizes get bigger, seriously some awesome stuff, I encourage you to join in check out the 12 days of Christmas at Zagg.com, seriously what are you going to lose?

I have been slacking so badly with eBay it’s not even funny. I really need to get on the ball about that. I don’t want to disappoint people hehe.

So I just seen a video trailer, and it looks like another funny one with Simon Pegg, so I wanted to share that. It’s called ‘Paul’

It’s already going to be noon, gosh where does time go? Anyway have a lovely day and don’t forget to get in on that 12 days of Christmas!

BAD2010 – Water

Water, have you given it much thought? Where it comes, how it gets here, and how lucky we are to have it at our disposal as we do? I do now and then, and that’s being honest. Because it’s so easy to access for us, we don’t think about it much. Well don’t feel guilty, a lot of people do the same thing. This post is brought to you in part by http://blogactionday.change.org/, and myself

Here is your chance to get involved and spread the word on the work that water.org is doing, they are amazing, there isn’t enough words to say what a difference they are making, and what a difference we can make as well.

The people from Africa and the like, walk miles and miles to get their water, and what do we do, walk to the sink, or in some cases to the refrigerator for bottled water. Water is a luxury for us. To think that clean and safe water is a rarity in other countries, that even mobile phones are easy to come by. Gosh what a thought! I would like to share this video with you, please take a few moments of your life to watch it, perhaps it will inspire you to get involved.

It’s a powerful video, but it’s the point that we are trying to get across here. How vital it is to our existence that we get involved, and we take the time to care enough to do something, to help. As Benjamin Franklin once said:

When the well is dry, we know the worth of water.

Are we going to wait until the well is dry? No, we aren’t, no we shouldn’t! Did you know that every week, nearly 38,000 children under the age of 5 die from unsafe drinking water and unhygienic living conditions, my gosh that is just horrible, horrendous! African women walk over 40 billion hours each year carrying cisterns weighing up to 18 kilograms to gather water, which is usually still not safe to drink. Can you do this? Would you do this? You would if it meant life or death. Please get involved, I implore you to do so.
