I was fortunate enough to win a prize last year during the One World/One Heart Giveaway and now I want to give you a prize. (That name just makes me think of the Cheetah Girls’ song that my daughter overdoses on. lol)
More about One World/One Heart:
“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…This is more than wanting to win something…….that is only the means…….in the end it’s about finding kindred spirits.”
