First I want to thank everyone for their donations to the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation. My goal was $500.00 and with your generosity, I raised $825.00! I cannot tell you how much this means to me. Every time I got a notification that someone had donated to my page, I got a little teary. I am so fortunate to have so many kind, generous and loving people in my life. I would also like to say that the quilting community is just awesome. I would say that the majority of donations came from my quilty friends…ones I know and ones that I have never met. You guys are so awesome. I’m so glad I am a part of it and have made so many great friends.
I know, I know, shut up and announce the winner already, right? I am so pleased to announce that the winner is Scott Hoffman. He is a friend that my husband knows through autocross. His daughter is also affected by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. She is actually in Germany right now recovering from a very complicated and dangerous surgery. You can read more about her here. I could not be happier that Mr. Random Number Generator chose him!
Here’s how I chose the winner. First, I made a spreadsheet with a name for every $5.00 donation. I then put the list into the random generator (at random.org) and mixed all the names up.
I had a total of 155 names. Then, I put that number into the random number generator and it selected number 140, Scott Hoffman!
My husband, Perry was there as a witness. My cat Fuller was there also, but he’s not a very reliable witness. He can be kind of shifty.
Congratulations to Scott and Chelsea. I hope that the quilt will help aid in Chelsea’s recovery!
Again, I cannot say thank you enough to everyone who donated. I am truly grateful. Love to all!
