Big book bag contest winners
You certainly left me with a big job on Christmas Eve! I went through the emails of all those who had entered the big book bag giveaway contest carefully.
Anyone could enter, of course, and several people just said, "Enter me, please," so I gave them one number.
Many of you donated something to heifer.org, and each of you received 20 numbers. And many others of you said that though you weren't giving to Heifer.org, you were giving to Samaritan's Purse, World Vision, or a similar organization. I gave each of you ten numbers.
All in all, I had entries for numbers one through 720!
I then went to random.org and asked the computer for four random numbers--the first would be the book bag winner, and I'd send the other three numbers an advance copy of SHE'S IN A BETTER PLACE.
SO . . . Congratulations! Lora B. was our big book bag winner, and as soon as I get her address, I'll send it out.
Deborah L., Michelle G, and Trish B. each won a copy of the third book in the Fairlawn series. (I haven't used their full names for privacy reasons, but I've e-mailed each winner.)
Many thanks to all of you who blessed me with your interest and participation. The real winners were all those who were helped by your giving hearts.
A blessed Christmas to everyone!
