The Bento4Japan fundraiser organized by my fellow bento bloggers has already raised thousands of dollars to aid Japan’s disaster relief - and it’s still running! And, here’s a chance for you to get one of the prizes that was offered!
I won this bento starter set donated by Angeleyes of BentoFun. Here’s what’s in the set:
I bid on the auction because I fell in love with the bag….but since it is such a great starter set, Since it’s really a great starter kit, I’ve decided to offer it here as a giveaway. The winner will not have to pay for anything (I’ll cover the postage to anywhere worldwide, and the winning bid price of the auction of course, which will be donated to GlobalGiving to aid Japan’s disaster relief efforts.)
I do ask that you consider donating something more towards Japan’s disaster relief efforts. You may not be able to afford bidding on Bento4Japan auction item, but maybe you can spare a few dollars or Euros (insert your local currency here)! I can’t track donations officially of course, but if you do decide to enter this drawing, just let me know if you donated to the Red Cross or another organization, dropped some change into a donation box, and so on. (And of course, no one would lie about something like that…right? ^_^;) I’ll keep an unofficially tally of what’s been donated. If you’re not sure how to donate, check out the long list I put together here.
To enter, you must leave a comment on this page. (If you’re reading this by email, please click on the title of this article to go to the JustBento web page. I will not accept emailed entries, sorry!) Just let me know where in the world you are (so I can pre-calculate the shipping costs), and if you donated something (how much and to who).
Your comment/entry must be posted by 23:59:59 CET (Central European Time) of Friday, April 22, 2011. The winner will be contacted by email to arrange shipping etc.
Good luck! ^_^
Update: The giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced shortly!
