So the never-ending saga that was the Giving Thanks Giveaway 2012, Facebook edition has finally reached a conclusion, a happy one for two individuals. Two? Yes, two. You see, the message I sent the first winner did not go through until I sent her a followup message to tell her that she had not responded in time. You can imagine how disappointing and frustrating this must have been for her, but she was nothing but gracious and understanding. I felt terrible but wanted to stick to the official rules in case anyone decided to get prickly with me.
And then it happened again. I chose another winner and she didn’t get the message until I sent a follow up one. When I realized what was happening I didn’t feel right not awarding the first winner her due prize. So I made an executive decision: there are two winners, each one receiving a $1,000 cash card that I am dropping in the mail today.
