I've got a little problem, and you might be my big solution.
Some months ago, I agreed to be part of the Save Darfur Canada postcard campaign. I have in my possession approximately 50 postcards, which need to be signed and returned to me ASAP so that I can in turn send them back to Save Darfur Canada, who will then hope to send 300,000 postcards to the Prime Minister- one fore each life lost in the current crisis.
Here's what I would like to do: Two lucky/energetic/outgoing people can get around 25 postcards from me, and have them signed pronto, and then returned to me. I'd like to have them back within two weeks. Those two people, upon completion of their mission, then hold a trump card that will enable them purchase any bag that comes up at the minimum bid amount of $45.00. You can trump anyone at any time during the day of the bag that suits your fancy, and the bag will be yours.
This might be an awesome idea if you're finding the bags going beyond your budget, but you think it wouldn't be too difficult to drum up 25 signitures. Maybe you have 25 people in your staff room at lunch, and you could get it done in a day. Interested? Leave me a comment, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
*update: Thank you to the first two volunteers- P and L.
The great postcard challenge has been launched, and both positions have been filled.
And yes, the Hokey Polka bag is still here for your viewing pleasure.
