Wow! You all have been very busy submitting reviews and suggesting resources for our database. Since yesterday we have reached the 75th, 100th and 200th reviews and I am pleased to announce that Beth Hollmann has won a $75 gift certificate to the location of her choice, Chrystal Richerson has won the Vado HD Camcorder and Nicole Hale has won the Wii system. Congratulations, ladies.
I would like to take a minute to thank you all for the thoughtful reviews that you have left. The detailed experiences you have submitted with your ratings will be a huge help to homeschoolers deciding which curriculum is right for them. Thank you, and keep those reviews coming – we are almost at the 350 reviews benchmark and we still have the iPad to give away when we reach 500 reviews!
I wanted to take a moment to explain the giveaway process since I haven’t done so yet. You may have noticed that we have several repeat winners. To encourage everyone to leave reviews for as many different homeschool resources as they have used, we purposefully did not limit prizes to one per entrant. Since every review is an entry, the more reviews you submit, the more chances you have to win. We are using Random.org‘s Third Party Draw service for our drawings to ensure fairness and truly random winners. The email addresses submitted with each review up to the quantity cut-off for that drawing (IE for the $50 gift certificate, the email addresses associated with the first 50 reviews were used) are entered into their system and in a similar fashion to a certified official, RANDOM.ORG acts as an unbiased third party who conducts the drawings in a manner that is guaranteed to be fair and truly random. It is the most reputable solution for holding random drawings online.
Thank you again for your support, and good luck with the upcoming drawings!
