giraffe of the day

January 31, 2010 at 5:43 pm 8 comments

I received an email yesterday that made me smile from ear to ear.  ‘I loved your giraffe so much I blogged about it’ wrote Ola of One Million Giraffes, having named my sunflower giraffe as her 234th Giraffe of the Day.  Back in September when I uploaded my photo it joined 267,350 other giraffes and today the figure stands at 547,792.  If you’d like to help Ola reach 1,000,000 there’s just one simple rule:  you have to create your giraffe with your own hands (without using a computer).  If your creation features more than one giraffe it counts for as many giraffes as featured.  Like the addition of a baby giraffe making two.

I love the way this project has sparked people’s imaginations all across the world.  Will you be creating a giraffe that’s one in a million?

    Jaime – it’s a very cheering sight, especially when you’re already a giraffe fan like me

    Mr P – glad it’s tickled your creative fancy. I’m sure you could cook up some giraffe-y delight

    Anita – and I just know K has a giraffe or ten up her sleeve

    MC – ain’t it just

    Alas, I could never come up with something that original. I remember your fabulous sunflower giraffe and sure love the other ones too. They are all so imaginative ! (Although the snow sculpture reminds me of Nessie :P).

    I love your sunflower giraffe and pleased to see it is getting some kudos – I would love to make a sandwich giraffe like that one in your pics – it is so cute – thanks for putting me onto this site
