Yep, it’s been a few weeks since our blogathon for the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, but we’ve still got some business to attend to: namely, getting our prizes out. I did the drawing early, but there have been some communication snafus. But, we’ve finally got our ducks in a row here, and can announce the prize winners.
Our blogathon prize winners are…
- Theresa Moylen, who left four comments during the event , will receive 3 children’s books from GreatFunBooks.com (which has some great resources on finding fun kids books).
- Stan Katz at cosmetic supplies resource ComesticIndex.com left a very generous pledge of $500 during the event… and we picked his name for an MP3 copy of Snatum Kaur’s Liberation’s Door from Spirit Voyage.
- Heather Norris may have set a record with six comments during the blogathon; she was the winner of a Soap Nuts Starter Pack from LaundryTree.com (and thanks to Laundry Tree for shipping the prize to Ireland!)
- Brennan Novak left a great comment about eco heroes (a topic on which he knows something: he’s building a site on eco heroes), and also won a handmade cup glove from Glue & Glitter.
- Eric Hillerns loved my idea of Wal-Mart becoming the world’s largest refill station, and won the Guayaki Yerba Mate prize package with all sorts of goodies…
- Finally, we had five $10 gift certificates for the Milkweed Merchantile’s green general store; we also had five post contributors leave comments during the event. I believe in synchronicity, and decided to award them these prizes. The bloggers who took that extra step were Becky Stiepe of Glue & Glitter, Chris Baskind of More Minimal, Tim Hurst of ecopolitology, Alison Kerr of Loving Nature’s Garden, and Taylen Peterson of Calfinder.
Congrats to our winners, and many thanks to all who participated in the blogathon!
Well this prize winner is thrilled skinny with her soap nuts prize and is busy assembling a nice dirty pile of laundry to test them on! Thank you so much! To you guys and also to Lisa Albrecht!
PS leaving comments seemed merely polite considering how interesting the posts were, and how much time and sffort you’d all put into it, and anyhow don’t the Irish love to talk???
I’m so glad you contributed so many comments, Heather… made it feel like you were there with us! And let us know how the Soap Nuts work out… I’m really intrigued with the product concept…
Wow, this is absolutely a great blog and site. Love the idea of Sustainablog Green Choices Store. Too bad we just discovered your blog now and missed the blogathon. Seems like it was a lot of fun. We make some cool hoodies and t-shirts that are organic and sweat-shop-free. They are made out of cotton using non-reactive dyes and water-based inks. We are a movement that is committed to using materials in a way that promotes our ecological system. Check us out @ http://www.thehotlovemovement.com.
