I want to congratulate MELSHARYA on Youtube and the blog winner is Magaly Silveyra!!!! Congratulations!!! Thank you all for your wonderful entries and taking the time to share your heart warming stories. Every single tweet, instagram, and comment was counted. You guys brought love to this holiday season for sharing your heartfelt stories to other readers and myself.
I wish I can personally give something to every single person but we all know that is something out of my budget. Eric and I had used 2 type of randomizer to ensure that everyone had an equal chance of winning. For the blog, it was through Rafflecopter and for Youtube – Eric had to enter everyone’s entries into an excel spreadsheet then used random.org to select a lucky number. We felt it would be unfair to favorite one comment over the rest when everyone’s story is so personal and different. BIG BIG Thanks to everyone that entered!!! Please know that I will have more fun giveaways in the future when possible. I really appreciate those who support me not for just my giveaways but because they really enjoy what we do!! Love you my friends!
P.S. Just in case if you are confused how the winners were selected or how the giveaway works – The rules are below for your reference (click read more)
