Contest Results-- Thank you!



Hi everyone,

After much deliberation, I have picked four charities
to contribute to on your behalf.
It was very difficult,
because each one makes a difference
and helps someone or something.

My hope is
that through this contest,
all of us have learned of some charities
that we didn't know about.

I know I did.

In no particular order,
the winning charities are:

Heifer International
(Heifer.org)

Operation Smile
(operationsmile.org)

Alex's Lemonade
and

Cure Search
(curesearch.org).

I will be contributing $25 to each
of these four charities.

Please let me know if you would like
the donation made on your behalf,
on behalf of your families
or on behalf of someone that you know
or wish to honor.

The great thing is,
in a contest like this,
each and every one of us
is a winner
in making the world a better,
safer and healthier place.

So give yourselves all a pat on the back!

And now, the books....
I have a nice sized box of books
going to......

(drumroll please...)

NIC ROGERS!

Nic, congratulations!
I will be boxing up some favorite books
that I think you will like
and sending them on over to ya.
Please email me your address!

Thank you all for participating,
reading my blog
and being a part of my life,
either online or in person.

I am honored.

That was a really nice thing to do for those charities. It was a fun contest and I think you picked some great winners.

I tagged you for a meme, if you have time or energy (it involves a lot of tagging other people). Don't feel like you have to, but if you want it's there!

Thanks so much for selecting CureSearch for your donation! I am the Website Content Manager for CureSearch and ran across your blog post this morning. We so appreciate your donation to support childhood cancer research.

Hey LeeAnn,

I just read about one of the charities to which you'll make a donation. Heifer Intl is looking into whether to build a wind turbine at its farm in central Massachusetts. I learned about this in a brochure from a renewable energy program that I joined as part of my electric bill. Coincidence? I think not!
