Thank you for everyone who participated in our first ever PIOB giveaway! Thank you all for the wonderful comments and for sharing with us your thoughts and feelings about PIOB! It provides both Elizabeth and I the validation that we need sometimes to know we are on the right path doing what we are called to do. Many of these shared thoughts brought us a vast array of emotion from tears of joy, contentment, peace, love, and most of all unity. We feel your love and we love you back. We are truly invested in this community and everyone in it. We pray for those that are finding difficult times and know that with each box that is sent, the giving family is also providing positive thoughts and prayers. We also pray for each family that has been a giver. We hope that they are over-filled with the love that giving to a family in stress has to offer them. We are all united together in this little online community and we couldn't be more satisfied, elated and joyful to all the families whose lives have been touched from giving and/or receiving.
Due to the nature of all the wonderful comments, both Elizabeth and I decided it was just not fair nor possible for either one of us to choose a winner. Each comment touched us in a unique way - especially knowing who the comment came from. So we did a little research and was able to find a very sophisticated online software that randomly picks winners called - Random Line Picker. You type in the text, re-arrange the text several times, and then click "Pick 1 Line Winner" and it picks randomly for you! How cool! We were very relieved that that the responsibility of choosing was left to complete randomness.
THE WINNER IS........SUZANNE!
Just to share with you a little about Suzanne. She contacted us about a month ago letting us know that she is the mother of 4 children - 3 boys (7, 5, 2 1/2) and 1 girl (5 weeks) and had lots of boys clothes to share to a family in need. She amazingly gathered her boys together for a summer project of going through clothes, boxing them and donated to 4 different families!!! Check out pictures of their crew from a previous post. She and her family have blessed so many. We are happy that she has been randomly chosen for PIOB's first contest giveaway to Nicole's For Children.
Thank you again to all who entered! We will be doing more contests in the near future. So tell your friends and family about our site, how we together help others and how we can make a difference! Please continue to share with us your thoughts. Your comments keep us going - even if they are brief. Let us know what you think of a post or provide ideas for reaching more people. And as always - continue to Pass It On!
In love & kindness,
