Tickets to Bearville

Hey, remember the nice folks at Build-a-Bear who sponsored the contest for a Tropical Hello Kitty? They up and mailed me some more goodies.

Here on my desk I have two 10,000 Bear Bills cards. These normally cost $10 each and can be redeemed in Build-a-Bearville for all sorts of cool virtual stuff. As an added bonus, each card will also get your online character a free virtual ride, and each card comes with a bonus $10 Giving Card that can be used to donate towards the classroom project of your choice.

In short, these are way cool.

Two lucky Want Not readers will each receive one of these cards. This is a quickie contest—to enter, leave a comment on this post today (November 9th, 2008) by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific). One comment per person, valid email address required. Winners to be determined by random number generation and reading tea leaves (though this tea I’m drinking is in bags, so that’s going to prove challenging).

Ready? Go!
