Anniversary Giveaway

Early December marked Million Dollar Journey’s 5th Anniversary. To celebrate, we held a giveaway of $500 (20 x $25) worth of gift cards and up to $500 in a charity donation depending on the number of facebook likes we could generate. The turn out was quite impressive where we generated a little over 100 new facebook followers and hundreds of contest entries.

As promised, we donated $1 for every new facebook like to the Make a Wish Foundation ($100) and for good measure, we donated another $100 to a local childrens hospital.

Now, what you’ve been waiting for, the gift card giveaway winners!   All entries were thrown into an electronic hat and numbers randomly dawn using an online random number generator.  The winners are..
