"Hong Kong Riding High", Pay it Forward: Winners

Olympic Countdown Clock

About a week ago I announced an Olympic Ticket Giveaway. The time has come to announce the winners and runners-up. Although there is no way for me to verify you’ve done your good deed, I hope that you will follow through even if you didn’t win the tickets.

There was a great response, with even better ideas:
  • Pray for peace on Earth
  • Organize a Couch Surfing gathering
  • Give art lessons to friends and family
  • Give up metro seats
  • Make people smile
  • Give English lessons to Japanese speakers
  • Organize a fundraiser for the Join Together Society
  • Sponsor a Sichuan child
  • Help economically depressed municipalities start businesses
  • Give technical help
  • Spread happiness
  • Volunteer at Chinese orphanages
  • Be extra nice to the boyfriend
  • Organize kids sporting events
  • Donate to the Electronic Frontier Foundation
  • Lower carbon footprint by using mass transit more
  • Do the right thing
I'd like to give a special thank you to everyone who helped spread the word about this giveaway, especially the following:

And without further adieu…



Winners have 24 hours to contact me to claim their tickets, unclaimed tickets will be awarded to runners-up.
