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.
Congrats on reaching your goal! I’m up with the times and about to actually change your link on my blog now. Yay for promptness!
Hahaha! Thanks Colby! Glad to see you’re right on top of things. 😉
