First we wanted to thank those on our Facebook Page that wrote really deserving
comments the day after Veteran's Day about your military family serving for all our country, past and present.
As we said, regardless of one's political stance, we all agree that we are
all super appreciative when people, strangers to most, are out there protecting
the rest of us. And to all the families that sacrifice as well - with their loved ones elsewhere - we THANK YOU and Honor YOU TOO!
We just want to honor you all, and to tell you how much we respect and appreciate you and your families sacrifice. Thank you!
The photos are pretty cool too!:)
We had 3 winners on this one. We sure wish all of you could be winner's...that's the bummer part of all of this...so this time we took it out of our hands, but 1. Instead of 3 winner's, we did 4 winners. (I know, I know, we have a habit of this sometimes, what can we say?)
So this is how we laid it out. 3 Winners as we promised. the 1st was the one that got the most likes on their comment or photo. And the other 2 would be random. That way, we can safely remove ourselves, since EVERYONE is SO DESERVING! But there was 1 that really did deserve to win too. We know! EVERYONE deserved it! - But we think you will agree on this winner. Hopefully,even in this tiniest way she/they will see that people actually do care that families in the military do sacrifice.
Important NOTE TO WINNERS - IF YOU ARE A FREE HEADBAND WINNER - You NEED To Do 2 THINGS:
FIRST: You Need to Post on OUR FACEBOOK Page UNDER THE WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT- THAT YOU WON! - YAY! ....And that hopefully you are tickled Pink!
SECOND: YOU ALSO NEED TO Share OUR Winner's announcement Facebook Posting from our FB page, ON YOUR Facebook Page, and that you are 1 of the winner's! When you complete this, your headband is ready to ship!
OK! :) So, let the fun GIVEAWAYS begin!
1) To The Most Votes - Vickie Kulp. Congrats Vickie!
Apparently, Vickie has a long heritage of family members in the military going back to the civil war. We thought that was pretty cool. So did everyone else. She won with the most likes. Congrats Vickie Kulp! (Although everyone deserves it!:)
2) Random Free Headband Winner #1 - Angel Schultz. Hey there Angel - CONGRATS to You-wherever you are! Hopefully you will see this! Thanks a million for participating! We're Thrilled to Announce that you are one of our winners! If someone knows who Angel is, please tell her she won! :)
3) Random Free Headband Winner #2 - Lisa Miller Kawaiek. Congrats to You Lisa! Thanks you very much for taking the time to participate in our giveaway! We have the BEST Fans! :)
If someone knows Lisa, please tell her she won too! :)
4) Now this person was not technically a winner. We just decided to make her a winner, because she and her family ARE winners! (As all of you are of course, but we are already picking 1 extra one!) This time, it would be Colette Ostrander. We don't know where she is from, but her husband has done 7 TOURS OF DUTY as a Ranger!! Can you imagine!? A Ranger! I didn't even know what that was until today. Very impressive. And a tremendous sacrifice for all involved. She wrote they don't ever get any recognition, and made a point to say they weren't asking for it, as they love what they do, and feel a strong duty to do it.... we're figuring (and hoping) No recognition is likely for the safety of everyone. But we all totally appreciate what you guys do. Please, all of you in the military, please don't ever forget that. A headband is hardly recognition, even a Rockin headband as this! :) - you guys deserve the moon. But in our hardly significant way, we want to send a big thank you! We recognize and appreciate All your sacrifices as a family! And Colette Ostrander, you have WON our Aztec State of Mind Headbands for sharing your story!
As we do to so many of you, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It's a scary world out there, we hope our At The Beach America headband will give you a little smile every single time you look in the mirror! Thanks for Rocking your Courage each and every day!:)
