And we have a winner.....

Thanks to all those who participated....all 6 of you :) I was hoping to have more, but 6 is better then none. :P I pretty much had my winner chosen yesterday morning, until I received my final entrant.  Trust me when I say this though, picking a winner was no easy choice, and this e-mail if it's real or not really got to me. I'll be contacting you shortly to get shipping info. Just to let everyone know though, If I don't get a response by tomorrow night to my e-mail I will go with my runner up. For everyone else though here is the winning e-mail.

At the risk of sounding like a sob story I would like to tell you a little about me.  My family is HUGE.  My parents went through a nasty divorce and my mother ended up working two jobs.  Then she remarried a seemingly great guy, he was wealthy, took care of her and he seemed great.  Then things got weird, he pretty much went insane and ended up killing himself this past month.  My mother was left with a house and two cars that wernt payed off, and to top it off, he had alot of unpaid debt she didnt even know about.  Why am I telling you about all this you may wonder? I know whatever you send will not be a million dollars or anything.  And honestly I could never expect anything of value.  But If you did choose me, I would give you my mothers address,( I hope that's allowed) And I would love to see the look on her face as she receives a little special something in the mail, regardless of if its a card or..well..anything.  She would know that someone out there, knows her story and cares about her.  That she isn't alone.  I know all that sounds cheesy and lame but believe me, she is a very sentimental and caring person.  Anything helps :)  

Well Anon, I hope your mother likes the gifts. Though I doubt she'll have any use for any of them. I do hope they bring her a little bit of joy right now. I just hope she isn't freaked out about receiving a box of presents from someone she doesn't know :) lol

  2. Awww :) I love when people do things for their parents or their grand parents *A*

    That's the best gift you can give to a parent or a grandparent - reciprocating all the love and care they've given you over the years and letting them know they raised you right :)
