The Best In #SWEDOW 2010:
Woo-hoo! Maybe you thought I’d forgotten or decided to let it slide. But no. Here are the 2010 winners of what may very likely become an annual event here at Tales From the Hood: The Best in #SWEDOW:
Underneath your clothes: Steve takes home the gold in this category with his winning entry: Knickers 4 Africa. This cutting-edge charity from the land that gave us Led Zeppelin and Oxfam will deliver your gently used knickers (er… “panties” for American readers) – no thongs, please – to a knicker-less woman in the country of “Africa.”
It’s All About the Children: Maureen takes the gold in this category with a #SWEDOW classic: Little Dresses for Africa. Got some used pillow cases? Wash the drool out and then turn those bad boys into – you guessed it – little dresses for Africa.
#AidFootFetish. I must say that I was suprised and a tiny bit disappointed in the overall lack of competition in this category. Nonetheless, I am very pleased to award the gold to “AD” for the ever controversial Soles 4 Souls. You know, ’cause they’re totally running out of made-in-China flip-flops… er.. somewhere.
Out of Africa: Martin cleans house in this category by drawing our attention to an attempted fiasco involving 100,000 servings of organic baby food for Pakistan. Despite a great deal of irate-ness in – uh – New Zealand (few things are more dangerous than a bunch of riled up Kiwis), both UNICEF and the Red Cross had the good sense to leave this one at the table.
GRAND PRIZE: And the winner of the 2010 Best in #SWEDOW is…
AD for The Breast Milk Project. I think this is the first time I’m hearing of biological #SWEDOW. Might have to add that as a category next year
As previously announced, all prizes will be provided from @meowtree’s personal #SWEDOW collection. Winners, please post your post/mailing details in the comments thread or send to me at talesfromethehood(at)gmail(dot)com.
Thank you to everyone who entered. Hope to see you all again next year!
