Okay all you lovely people, I'm wondering if anyone can help me with a project. Basically I need to get photos or even videos taken of a hat (woollen, knitted, very friendly with a kind disposition) in as many obscure locations as possible. It's a very long story, but for now just think of Amelie.

So I'm thinking if I can collect some addresses through Private Messages, I'll send the hat to the first person on the list then have them send it to the next and have it bounce around from there. If anyone can think of an easy way I could perhaps pay for postage I'd be willing to pay for that side of things.

I promise this is the last time I make an appeal like this, but trust me it's my ambition to make someone happy and in my own twisted logic this was what I came up with. So if anyone's up for helping me out send me a message and help chart the journey of the hat.

Cheers all.

hey drew it's not a pyramid scheme, it's an inverse funnel. Only kidding, I forgot to say that this isn't for a bet or a way of making money or anything tired like that. This is just my attempt at making someone happy and thus potentially saving the world.

Cheers to everyone who replied so far, like I said if you could PM me an address (We here at PorcuBrine Incorporated Engineering (tm) promise not use your address for dodgy means and once used, we will eat all addresses to protect your privacy) that'd be great, I'll get it sent off to the first person asap.

If you think the east coast of Lincolnshire is obscure enough, I'm happy to help. I promise I want let it go to Skegness and waste all its money in the arcades.

Pay people postage by way of a cup of tea, should they ever meet you. You could send them a teabag with the hat if that's not likely. Maybe the hat along with a box of PG Tips.

really? I just sent a large box to canada for a couple of quid. just send it by airmail, there's no rush.

Like I said if it's too much then I don't mind paying the postage but It's a flat, light package so it shouldn't cost a fortune to send.

That was the other thing. Those prices are for a 1 pound box and I didn't know the weight of the hat. What is a quid? Does it have tenticals?

hey I thought it was supposed to be done with a dwarf !!!
But a hat is fine, specially if the person likes the hat.

I'd be glad to help but don't put me in priority, I don't have a camera yet, but soonish. I live in La Rochelle/France by the sea.
