Congratulations to Our 9th Birthday Raffle Winners!

16 July 2013 3 Comments

Dear All,

The toddlers have chosen, and thought it would be fun to build up the suspense apparently by taking a while to do so. The drawing was held at our favorite little park in Rome, Italy in Villa Sciara. You can watch Lukas (3) and Nico (1) choose the winners here:

A big congratulations to Jeff and Suzzanne Cutler who won second prize (A $50 Amazon gift card or donation to the charity of their choice) and Jocelyn Burrows-Vache who won first prize (A $100 Amazon gift card or donation to the charity of her choice.)

We will be in touch via email within the next 24 hours to make sure the prizes get to their recipients. Thanks to all who entered. The biggest winners are the children and their families who are benefiting from your generous donations. We really appreciate everyone who participated and look forward to having another raffle soon.

Best wishes!
Kristen and the Aura’s House Team

    Thank you Nico for having my name fall on your shirt! How exciting! I’d like to use my prize to donate $100 to the charity of my choice: Aura’s House. Please add it to whichever project has been waiting the longest. Thanks again!

    Thanks Jocelyn! That’s so incredibly kind of you. I also heard back from Jeff and Suzzanne Cutler, our second prize winners and they wanted to do exactly the same. Together with your prize, you will make a gigantic difference to Habiba in India whom we are currently trying to help via this project: http://wp.me/pqSAC-1GY

    I will make the donations today. Thanks again. What amazing people we’ve got in our little community. Mwah! xo

    Thank you to all the winners for your generosity in donating your winnings to Habiba’s fundraiser! It\\’s a major increase in her funding, and one big step loser to giving her family a floor and a chance to permanently increase their income. So many thanks on behalf of Habiba and her family!
