Giving away 32 organic eletote bags over next 32 days.

Via Waylon Lewis
on Oct 29, 2010

Over the next 32 days, our goal is to nearly double our fan base: from 27,655 to 50,000.

Why? Facebook has fast become a greater gateway to news, information, entertainment & even a little enlightenment than Google itself—we magnetize 33% of our readers through FB, & only 35% through Google.

If you invite 108 friends (click “suggest to friends” : ) or more (we love 500+) just say so in comments below this blog.

We’ll then pick 32 winners + mail you an organic canvas “membership” tote, gratis.

Remember to email us your name, address and how many you invited to info at elephantjournal dot com in case you are picked.
