A week ago I asked you to go vote for a proposed design for a LEGO Deep Sea Submersible Alvin. At the time, LEGO Alvin had 275 votes. I said that I’d give you an update on the voting a week later. At the moment, LEGO Alvin has 356 votes. So, over the last week LEGO Alvin has gained an additional 81 votes. That’s not bad, but I think we can do better! Well, we need to do better since a design needs 10,000 votes before LEGO will even take a look at it. Do you think we can convince 10,000 people to vote for LEGO Alvin? I think we can!
So, I’m going to extend the LEGO Alvin challenge for another two weeks. Please, please go vote for LEGO Alvin here. Please advertise the LEGO Alvin voting on Facebook, G+, Twitter, on your blog, etc. Please also encourage your friends, family, colleagues, and everyone else to go vote!
To encourage voting, I’ll offer a small prize. If you voted for LEGO Alvin, leave a comment below (honor system!). In two weeks I’ll select a winner by drawing names randomly out of a hat. I will send a rock prize to the winner. More specifically, I will send the winner a beautiful hand sample of Dwyka tillite which I collected in South Africa’s Karoo region.
