Happy December everyone! I’m very happy to announce that November’s fundraiser was a complete success! I was able to meet my goal of raising $300 (I raised $320) for Share Our Strength because of your generosity.
Of course we have a little bit of housekeeping to take care of because for every dollar donated, each person gained one entry into a drawing. Yesterday I rounded up all the names and dollar amounts donated and threw them into an Excel spreadsheet. Each person was given a range of numbers, dependent on the amount donated. Once set up, I used Random.org’s random number generator to provide a number from 1 to 320 and let ‘er rip!
Lucky number 223 was drawn and the winner is….. Coral Biegler!
Coral is the winner of the grand (and only) prize: a character will be named after her in As Darkness Ends: Book Two! Congratulations Coral!!
I want to take this moment to thank everyone who donated to this fantastic cause. Share Our Strenth’s goal is to eliminate childhood hunger by 2015. I cannot think of a better cause during this time of the year. Thank you all so much for being so generous. I am grateful that I was able to use my powers for good and make a difference in this world.
