Give aways and goodies

Day 20 of the advent calendar, a prize for the African Wildlife Foundation, an explorer set for you and me making bath bombs

This draw is closed. Thank you to all of you who participated. Thank you! Welcome to today’s advent calendar give-away: We have two prizes.

In the year of “Cecil the lion” a prize of 100$ goes to the Afrian Wildlife Foundation. Their mission “The African Wildlife Foundation, together with the people of Africa, works to ensure the wildlife and wild lands of Africa will endure forever.”

And you can win an explorer set with 3 scents, in 15 ml, your choice (see here for details, and the fine print below). Good luck.

Today’s picture shows you my scent bath bomb with somewhat limited foam results so far. Making the balls is super tricky. I will stick to hearts therefore. They are a touch too big, but much easier to prepare. The scent: Absolutely amazing rose&vanilla. A bit sweet but then: Hey! It’s X-mas.

One last word about Cecil the lion. I do not know how you think about it. For me it was a prime example how a discourse should not happen, an outcry, the shaming, hatred facebook posts but no actions;  and only few asked the real questions, like what is happening with wildlife in Zimbabwe besides Cecil? This is maybe, for me, the most saddening part in the story. Cecil died for nothing.

I tend to think  these days about what happened during this crazy year, the closer we come to 2016, the more. And when thinking about it: Actually, a lot of great things happened, too.

Fineprint: we pick a winner using The explorer set ships from Zurich, Switzerland. And wherever you live, local taxes, VAT, and import fee may apply and are not covered by Tauer. The winner is responsible for making sure that they are allowed to import the prize. The draw is open for anybody, but winners from these countries should provide a mailing address elsewhere: Italy, Russia, Spain, Croatia, Greece, Australia, Ukraine, most countries in the middle East.
