Picking Winners!

Hosting giveaways is fun…hard work, but fun. Picking and contacting winners is pure joy. I have never told a winner in person, but from the e-mails back to me I can tell that 99.9% of winners are thrilled to win. And truly grateful. Of course there is that one person who responds to my e-mail with nothing more than their address. No “Thanks!” or “Awesome!” or “Excited about winning!” Perhaps these few enter so many giveaways that thanking the person hosting the giveaway is not something they can do? Or maybe these people never say thanks to the waiter to shop assistant? FWIW, always say “Thanks” to whomever is doing you a good turn. I still remind my kids. Of course my kids still forget some of the time, but when they remember I have those heartfelt, proud Mommy moments!

But, on to the winners:

H&R Block At-Home Deluxe tax program — waiting to hear from winner

Joy Berry books — 1 set for younger kids and 1 set for older kids — winners have responded to me

Walmart $25 gift cards — winners have received their cards

  • Alvin & the Chipmunks BABW
  • Kodak Digital frame
  • Pearl of Wisdom Cervical Cancer
  • Joanie Leeds CD City Kids
  • Pillsbury Sweet Rewards pack

    I agree. I enter and win alot of giveaways, but I always say thank you in my reply. It’s always thrilling to win a prize!

    I also take an extra minute to comment if there’s a winner’s post. I wish everyone would. I think it’s only common sense and courtesy.

    I totally agree Cheryl. I also try to email the host of the giveaway when I receive my prize, so I can thank them again and let them know that it arrived.

    I always worry when I win I don’t sound grateful enough. I always say thanks & I’m usually squealing and clapping but I know nobody can see me, LOL. I really do appreciate it so much! 🙂
