Claudia Tait
, our first prize winner has generously donated her $100 prize to benefit Yasini Biggo and pay for some of his University expenses.

She writes,

“I thought Yasini might need clothes, supplies, anything really… (I made it through college on scholarships and had no money to speak of. It was a difficult time, never knowing if I’d be able to finish at all… I thought maybe Yasini could use a treat.)

Suzzanne and Jeff Cutler, second prize winners have generously donated their $50 prize to Parveen’s Emergency Income Generation Project. Artist, Jocelyn Burrows Vache who donated third prize, the silver Aura’s House necklace has also provided $20 in recent proceeds to Parveen’s project as well.

Thanks so much, raffle winners!


Hi Everyone!

A hearty congratulations to this year’s Holiday Raffle winners!


Here are the winners and their prizes:

The 2014 Holiday Raffle

  • Claudia Tait -First Prize ($100 Amazon Gift Card or Donation to Charity)
  • Suzzanne and Jeff Cutler -Second Prize ($50 Amazon Gift Card or Donation to Charity)
  • Robin Schwartz -Third Prize (Sterling Silver Hand-Made Aura’s House Necklace)

Our Christmas tree is still up (we like the pretty lights in January) and brothers Lukas (age 5) and Nico (age 3) did NOT choose this year’s winners as par usual. (Their mother, Aura’s House founder, Kristen Palana has a lot of things on her plate so decided to be more efficient with Random Picker this time around.)

That said, they DO wish you all the world’s most belated Happy Holidays and are hoping that your 2015 is full of good health, love, friendship, personal accomplishment, joy, fun, success, abundance, and lots of laughs.


Click the Random Picker blue seal to see the official drawing results.


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
