A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in our Empowering Giveaway and who helped spread the word about Matt’s LeBlanc’s Art for Life Campaign. Bloggers as far away as Australia posted about or linked to Matt’s campaign to raise $25,000 for cancer research, which is totally awesome!! I’d encourage everyone who added the link to their blog sidebar to keep the link there till Matt’s campaign ends in September.
So far, Matt has finished 27 of 200 paintings, sold 21 paintings, and raised $2,625.00. Way to go, Matt!!!! Guess who’s the new owner of #27…I couldn’t pass up this gorgeous blue painting :-) It’s so bright and energetic, and it reminds me of water. I’ll have to wait till September to get #27, because Matt is going to have a showing of all his campaign paintings at a special gala at the end of the campaign in September. Take good care of it, Matt!!
So now, onto the announcement of our winner… we had a total of 87 entries, with many participants having multiple entries. Which is great, because that means there were lots of Tweets and Facebook messages telling people about the campaign :-) We used Random.Org to select our winner…
And #81 is…
You’re now the owner of Matt’s beautiful painting, Empowering:
And lucky for you, you don’t have to wait till September to get your painting :-) I’ll be in touch to make arrangements to get your prize to you ASAP.
Once again, many thanks to everyone who participated. Every single one of you is a winner in our books for taking the time to help Matt reach his goal. And don’t forget, Matt is adding new paintings to his Art for Life Gallery every few days, so be sure to check in regularly. You just might find the perfect painting for you :-)
