Well I think I counted my chicks before the eggs hatched. Even though I received an enthusiastic reply from the NOLCHA lady I still have yet to receive anything in email or snail mail. Has anyone actually received anything yet?
I would not stress over it but I did try the guilt trip on them. Will let you know if I get anywhere.
As for the rest I would think that you could use the gift certificates as long as they ship overseas. They are $ sites and you would have a $ certificate. The Aveda one is at least very nice - Aveda started in Minneapolis and I still take my kids to their school for hair cuts. Very enviormentally conscious and great products.
Finally got my prize - I traded emails and she offered 3 bottles of perfume - easier to share than the $10 gift certificates so I said yes. They came last week and it is pretty nice even for a non perfume wearer like me. Escada - Marine Groove
