The Puzzles for Hope Contest began on November 4, 2010. The promo was: Got some original artwork you want everyone to see? Submit it to the Puzzle for Hope Contest and your masterpiece could appear in Gaia Jigsaw, where it'll be admired by countless Gaians.
- Nov 04 Puzzles for Hope Puzzle Contest
When your heart is broken, you must put the pieces back together and move on. Same thing goes for broken robots and hamsters. In case that ever happens, it's good to have puzzle skills, so Gaia is looking for some cool new images to freshen up Jigsaw.
Submit your original artwork and you could see your picture on the puzzle list.
The hope of broken things being put back together should never die. Please do your part to keep the dream of puzzles alive.
