I'm delighted to announce the winners of the giveaway to benefit Rob Wells, but before I do that, I want to thank each and every one of you. You are fantastic.
You all spread the news. Some of you gave cash. Others bought books. Some didn't have any money to give, but put the word out anyway. Many of you donated lovely incentives to encourage even more widespread giving.
Every bit of your generous efforts helped. You have made a huge difference in one family's life.
I won't disclose a number, but know this. You have helped keep the wolf from the door. Rob's ever-stalwart wife Erin can put groceries in the fridge with a lighter heart. Rob's kids can sense an ease in the stress level of their parents. And Rob has had a lifting of the mind-numbing financial anxiety that is absolute poison to creativity.
You did all that, and I hope you feel in your hearts the warm glow of satisfaction that comes from helping a brother in need. Thank you.
