One World One Heart 2011


Annoucning the FIFTH and FINAL 

One World One Heart Event

One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way.  Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world.  It's really that easy.

You must have a current, active blog to participate. Please do not create a blog only for this event.. That is NOT what this is about. Also, NO ONE under 18 may participate  
Welcome to Aileen's Musings
