one million giraffes
On the 6th of June 2009 I made a bet with my good friend, Jørgen. He didn't believe it was possible for me to collect one million giraffes. 440 days later I proved him wrong with help of people from all around the world. 102 countries helped out showing Jørgen how amazing the internet is.

You can find all of the one million giraffes on this site, in fact there are 1 016 052 giraffes here now! I have stopped accepting more giraffes. Why? Because very few are sent in nowadays and I have other things to do now.

I want to thank everyone who sent in a giraffe or two. You made this happen. Not me. I am forever grateful for making this an adventure I will tell my grandchildren about untill they hate hearing about it. Thank you.
