I apologize for the delay in getting this posted, I had some trouble updating the blog and things went a bit wonky on me. Gotta love technical difficulties! But everything is under control now and I’m baaaack. ;)
I was so thrilled to see such a great response to the third and final giveaway in the Holiday Giveaway Trio! I really wanted to start the year off by giving back to those great organizations that so much for so many, and rather than just pick one myself, I love getting you all involved! I know there are so many causes out there that touch each your hearts and I am honored to be able to honor YOU in these donations.
And here are the winners! Three commenters were chosen at random, and the charity of their choice will receive $100 in their honor or in honor of someone they choose.
Entry #20, Krystal Russell! Krystal chose for me to pick the charity, so I’ve chosen the American Widow Project. The AWP does amazing things for the new generation of young military widows and I have been deeply touched by Taryn’s work. I’m happy to be able to give back to the AWP in honor of Krystal. Thank you! <3
Entry #11, Jennifer Carroll! Jennifer chose the EOD Memorial Foundation as her charity of choice. She is a great friend of mine and her husband is also Air Force EOD, so this organization means a lot to her (and of course, to me as well!) I’m happy to be able to donate to the EODMF in her honor. Thank you Jennifer! <3
Entry #4, Chris Frost! Chris chose the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation as his charity of choice. The WEODWF is an amazing organization that does so much for our warriors and their families after they are wounded in action, and Chris experienced this firsthand. Thank you Chris for your sacrifice and I am honored to donate to the WEODWF in your honor! Thank you! <3
Donations to all of these causes have been made today and it is such a wonderful feeling to know that we have all come together as a community to contribute the fine work these organizations are doing. Thank you for your participation and for sharing the causes that mean so much to you! <3
