PMs coming soon for shipping info. Thanks to everyone who played and have a wonderful New Year!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!


Due to a mixup with Connaught Shaving and the worldwide postal service, I am now the proud owner of two 1 Kg blocks of Cella. Connaught told me it costs more to ship it back than to just keep it. They have EXCELLENT customer service BTW!

Because of that, I have 4 mini blocks (already gave one away) around 200g that I've vacuum sealed and are ready to ship off. This is brand new stuff, nice and white with no yellowing at all.

The rules here are simple, and we're going by the honor system Angel!
1. If you've donated to charity this Holiday Season, you're eligible to participate. It doesn't matter how much money or time you've given. I just care that you've given back! Active military is exempt from this rule, they've already given a TON!
2. You must live in one of the 50 US states.
3. I'm shipping these on my dime, so that means "the slow boat to China". If you want it faster, you have to pay the actual upgraded shipping costs.
4. Reply "I'm in" and put what you've done for others this year i.e. "dropped some change the the red kettle", "Active Duty", "Donated time at the homeless shelter", etc.
5. I will pick 4 winners at random on 12/27/14 and everything will ship out on the 29th.

Let the games begin and good luck everyone. Also, thanks for your time and/or $ and the spirit of giving back!

I'm in:All change from my recycling money into the Red Kettle
on my last walk down to Trader Joe's. I walk home playing crosswalk Toreador to these homicidal soccer moms in SUV
I'm on the last stretch, 6 blocks to my apt and I literally stopped in my tracks out of gas, sweating,blood sugar level down to my ankles, two bags and a rucksack worth of food.
There is a small greenspot below the freeway in old Thousand Oaks, what optimistic real estate agents unilateraly renamed midtown though it's on the edge. All the invisible latino day labourers stand there hoping for work.I've always said Buenos Dias with a wave and am greeted back with a SENOR after.
Two walked over and I was offered a old plastic jug of lukewarm tap water. It was more welcome than my favourite Perrier could ever be. Two picked up my sacks and carried them the remaining 5 blocks. I gave each $5 leaving me a dollar for the next lottery and told them to buy some cervesas. In Spanglish one asked if it was O.K. if they mailed it to their familyBlush
We said Feliz Navidad and parted. So, I was giver AND receiver in one day.

I'm in, my employer, every year, selects "Christmas Families" that we help out with much more than a few gifts and food. We have fundraisers during the year ranging from a Biscuits and Gravy Breakfast to craft auctions. This money is used to supply the families with furniture, large appliances, beds, etc., if needed.
This year our Omaha office helped out 8 families.
My part was contributing for supplies and a few crafts for the auctions.
