I received a very interesting email today, from a lad called Josh.
It went something like this...
I have started a unique charity called 1egg1world, based in Melbourne, which aim to raise $1million. What makes the charity particularly unusual apart from being run by three chickens (as the light-hearted face of the charity), is the method in which it aims to raise the money. Rather than donations and fundraisers 1egg1world is raising the money through ‘uptrading.' Starting out with just an egg, this was traded for a Coneheads CD, the CD for a Boggle boardgame and so forth until the current item. Apart from being an interesting story the current item will be of particular interest to your readers - a signed Sir Donald Bradman Bat, professionally framed with photos, statistics and a certificate of authenticity.
I've looked at the three charities they are going to support. Each targets a different, worthwhile area of need. Environment (CoolAustralia.org), poverty (OrphFund.org) and indigenous health (EarInfoNet).
Can you help? Do you have something fantastic to trade for this piece of fabulous?
I think this would be a pretty snazzy thing to own, no matter which country you support. Visit the site here.
