1,000,000 Giraffes.......

This young man or woman, I don't think it says, is collecting one million giraffes. Here it is in his own words.
My friend, Jørgen, doesn't believe I can collect one million giraffes by 2011. I'm gonna prove him wrong, but I need your help. You can create your giraffe(s) in any way you like, but not on a computer and no store bought objects. You must create your giraffe(s) yourself! Click here to read why. So far I've got 39.499 giraffes, so I need 960.501 more! And I have 511 days left to get them.
Let's show Jørgen how amazing the internet is.
Siksnosparnyte brought the project to our attention over on Drawspace. She asked us to join in and help him out. Here is a link to the very cool drawing that Siksnos sent in.

While I was at our Friday morning breakfast I had everybody including the waitress draw a giraffe on the menu. Then when I got home I had my teen age sons and their freinds add their own giraffes. We managed to send 21 giraffes to the project.

Check out his statistics page, it's pretty amazing. Anyone want to help this person get a million giraffes? Just go to his page and click on the green bar that says "Please send in your own giraffe!"


  1. What a great way to collect several for him.

  2. How fun! I've been working on two giraffe paintings for ages - maybe I'll hurry and finish them and send them to him!

  3. That will be quite a collection! Wonder what he will do with it once it's over? Pretty cool how people from all over the world come together on this project.

    I'll bookmark the site and might do one also. Thanks for sharing Paulette!

  4. By the way....the Fingerfoods look good...especially the fried mushrooms ;o ))

  5. Hi Helen, I had a time talking it up with them, but eventually everyone except my Uncle joined in. We forgave him since he had the pen.LOL

    That is a great idea Jan, I know how beautiful your work is, they will stand out indeed!

    I hope you do Christine. I was just amazed at the statistics page. Truly amazing what you can do on the internet!
    Funny I have only had breakfast there, they do everything well though so I am sure they are very good!
