Our 2nd birthday is on July 19th, the day I flew home from London after teaching & recruiting there for three years. So what should we do to celebrate?
Well, normally I would throw a big party to thank everyone involved in our success, but of course, that's kind of hard to do given that our teachers are in England, scattered across Canada and America and there are even a few in China, Japan and the Bahamas. But I still want to have a party!
A virtual party it will be. It's the last weekend of school for our teachers in London and a Sunday - a great day to go online and "party" with us. So, here's what I propose:
Come online on Sunday, July 19th and wish us a Happy Birthday.
Win prizes! Yes, that's right. You don't have to give us gifts, but we'll give them to you simply because we can and everyone loves to win.
I'll be on this blog and twitter, giving away awesome prizes and celebrating 2 years of helping amazing teachers make the move to London, England.
Who knows? Maybe our sponsors will even throw in some travel vouchers, or free flights (travel companies? Are you out there?), or free travel tours (come on Top Deck, I know you want to :-) ).
But just like throwing a real party, I worry that no one will show up. I am only human after all. Will you come to our party? What do you think I should give away as prizes?
