Winner of Adelson Shift!

Hi all!

I hope you ladies are having a fabulous week. Have you done a good deed recently or participated in a service project? Let me know! I am going to be featuring a “Chic and Charitable Person of the Month” on my blog each month from now on. I know that Lilly-loving ladies are the most charitable and compassionate consumers out there…so please do share your wonderful stories in the comment section! You can also nominate someone you know.

Also, thank you so much for being patient with me during the giveaway process. This was my first giveaway and I was completely unprepared, as to how many people would participate in it. It took me over a week to just sift through each email, check for the print screens, and keep count of each participant’s vote. It didn't help that I had to go through 150 emails. Yikes! Then, I had to check my total count with each participant’s total vote count because some of the emails were accidentally deleted by me along the way. I promise that for future giveaways, I will announce winners within days after the contest has ended and it will be much more organized.

By the way, this is the first time I have ever gotten 150 emails within two weeks! I took a print screen just to remember this special moment. :) Thank you all, who sent nice comments and ideas for this blog.

So I compiled a list of participants because I want to praise YOU ALL for making such a great contribution by becoming more aware about other youth-led charities out there. Some of you really went all out and contributed in other ways such as spreading the word about the issue of rape, twittering about Empower Our Youth, and getting your friends to vote. You all really inspired me with your passion for helping others. If you didn’t win, please don’t be disappointed. There will be many many many more opportunities to win something. I am planning on having another giveaway next week with a Lilly Dress from the Summer 2010 collection, once I reach a decision on which charity to feature from the comments you all have posted. Plus, I am planning on having a giveaway every week rather than every other week, once this blog reaches 500 followers. So please tell your friends to become followers as well.

Note: I took the names from the email you sent me. If you sent your print screens from two different emails without telling me, then I counted the votes as under two different participants. If there is a star (*) in front of your vote count, it is because you did not send me back a reply with your total vote count. Therefore, I went with the number I counted. Please contact me at if you would like me to remove your name for privacy reasons.
