Last Chance to Select Your Wonder of the World

SphinxPerhaps you have heard rumors of the selection of seven new Wonders of The World, which was probably implemented because most of the the original ones are either falling apart or no longer exist.  Only the Great Pyramids are still upright and they could definitely use an overhaul.

If you would like to choose your own favorites, you can still do so by phone or registering online. Half of the campaign profits will help restore cultural monuments.
