Well, more precisely....we got to SHIP an iPad today! Here's how the giveaway ended up:
The iPad is on its way to Patty, and I'm so grateful to everyone for having had this opportunity to share some fun and joy!
Patty, I hope you enjoy the gift!!
iPad Giveaway - Update!
Alright, ladies and gentleman, the hour is quickly approaching.
In three short hours, we'll "cut-off" the eligibility list for the iPad giveaway.
Hopefully, tomorrow, we'll be contacting one of you (privately first, by the way) to let you know that we have an iPad to send you and confirming what address you want it shipped to. Unless, of course, you are in the same town as us, and then we'll be figuring out a way to meet up with you and give it to you in person!
After we contact the lucky recipient, I'll post here on the blog, letting everyone know who got it. :-)
There is only one thing that may delay the announcement - we've had a number of donations come in today (which is fantastic - THANK YOU!) - and that means that we have to get an updated list of donors from Reece's Rainbow. We've been told that it sometimes takes a day for them to process all of the names/donations and get us that list. If that's the case this time, too, we will have to wait until Friday to contact the recipient. We just want to make sure that everyone who tried to participate in the giveaway is in the running - we don't want to leave anyone out!
So, if you haven't already gotten in on the action, take a moment to do so now! I am so excited to see what tomorrow brings!
Thank you all!
Would you like to have one of those?
An iPad 2, of your very own?
Let us give one to you!
We are holding our very first give-away on our Bringing Home Peter blog – isn't it exciting?!?!
“So who exactly is eligible for this iPad?” you may be wondering.
Everyone is eligible!
Yep, that’s right. Everyone.
All you have to do is one of two options (before March 1, 2012):
1) Make a monetary donation towards Peter’s adoption in any amount. There are three ways to do this: via either button on our blog (one is directly to us, and is not a tax deduction, and the other is a tax-deductible donation to Reece’s Rainbow that will be applied to our adoption fees), or in-person through a cash or check donation. We humbly request a donation of $50 to help us bring Peter home.
2) Share this blog (and give-away information) in some manner. This can be through Facebook, Twitter, email, or word-of-mouth. The only catch is that we need to KNOW that you shared the blog with a friend, so we can be sure to consider you when determining the gift recipient. If you send someone to our blog, make sure they know that they have to mention your name, either in a comment or email. If you share on Facebook, make sure to tag us and let your friends know to mention your name.
