the winner!

Congratulations to Claudia, Sal's cousin in Bensalem, Pennsylvania! (that's near Philadelphia) She was the first to contact me about my "blog-a-versary" (see my previous post).

Her "prize" is my $25 donation to her charity of choice, Samaritan's Purse. This organization is run by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, and provides international relief. Claudia told me how she and a group of other moms have participated many times in the Samaritan's Purse project called "Operation Christmas Child", which delivers shoeboxes filled with goodies to children in need. Each child gets his/her own shoebox ... and a bit of joy. What a wonderful concept!

If you would like to learn how to pack a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child (they're accepted year-round!), please click HERE.

Thanks Claudia, and everyone, for celebrating with me today! :-)
