…Sabrina Priebe!  Congratulations!

I am pleased to report that my 2 year-old son Lukas drew a name (after a very very long time!) from the box today and Sabrina is the winner of our second ever Aura’s House Raffle for the Room Construction Project for Francesco and Evelyn of Colombia! Thanks to Sabrina and all our kind donors so much for participating and for your kind support of our now completed project to benefit this deserving family who will soon have a safer place to live.

Sabrina can now choose either a $100 Amazon gift card or to have $100 donated to the charity/cause of her choice. I’ll post any updates as we receive them.

Thanks again and congratulations!

Best wishes,
Kristen Palana

    Thanks! Does this count as child labor? Will work for popcorn.

    Wow, thanks a lot! I didn’t think I was likely to win, but for a good cause it was worth a try. I would like the money to go to a fundraiser I have going for my sponsored child Julieth in Colombia, through the FirstGiving website, so that her family can have an indoor space in their house converted into a bathroom (the 8 of them currently have to use someone else’s toilet, and the torrential rains have started). The page is called “A Bathroom of Their Own,” and there is also a link posted to it on LiftOne >>> Message Boards >>> Initiatives and Events >>> FirstGiving Fundraisers 2011.

    Hi Sabrina,

    That’s wonderful! I’m so glad your winnings will go towards another needy family. Did you receive my email? Did you hear from (or contact) Steve Hogan who has kindly donated your prize? Once you two get in touch and you give him the link, he can make the donation. Also, you are welcome to post the link here as well.

    Best wishes and congratulations again!
