OK then. I definitely understand the benefits of tea, but for the purpose of this challenge, looks like we'll stick with water, with or without, lemon. So for those that would like to compete, just let me know if you got your water in for the specified amount of days. I'll check here for all entries before drawing for the prize.

you see, I drink 2-3 liters of hot tea in a day, but only about 4 cups of water. My tea is pretty weak because I use the same leaves/bag most of the day -- and it really is cold. I use the tea to stay warm in my office, so I won't easily switch to water, I just can't play this week.

I'll differ the ruling on the water to majority opinion. I know there are certain health benefits to these various things. What do you all think? Should tea and/or lemon be ok for this contest? What about other things like Crystal Light?

How do we feel about completely unsweetened, nothing added, and honestly pretty weak hot tea? It is COLD up in my neck of the woods!

We have had, and currently have, a few contests to win cool stuff. This week, I'm inviting you to become one with nature. Go out and drink some water. Make it at least 8 cups a day for 3 out of the 7 days this week, and you've earned yourself an entry. To avoid any confusion, make it pure water, with or without ice. As good as other liquids may be, such as Crystal Light, let's focus on the purity of mother nature's water.

For those that earn an entry, you will be placed into a drawing, which will be held at the beginning of next week. The prize will be a cool 'Child of Eden' shirt. Check out a video of it here: bit.ly/sEgG3j I'm not sure it is voice activated, as this guys makes it seem, but it does have some interesting lighting effects. I'll have to double check, but I believe the size may be large. Finally, I'm sorry for our international members, but this contest is open to U.S. Only members. I'm still working on some contests for our folks that are in Canada and around the globe.

So in summary, drink 8 glasses of water, at least 3 days this coming week, and come back here to tell us about it. Everyone should get a 'congrats' on their page for doing so, but one lucky winner will claim a interesting and beautiful shirt.
