Making Holiday Wishes Come True: Winners Announced!

It gives me great pleasure to announce this years Making Holiday Wishes Come True contest winners. There are two $250 Fred Meyer gift card winners and the other finalists will each receive a $50 Fred Meyer Gift Card.

Please note that the official voting ended last night at 11:59pm PST, so only texts and comments left prior to that will be counted as official votes. However, I’ve left the comment sections open in case anyone would care to go back and leave a kind word for our finalist families.

The winner of the voting portion of the contest was Jessica! She will be receiving a $250 Fred Meyer Gift Card!


Jessica had shared in her entry post that if she won, she would like to buy her son, Robby, a tablet. She shared:

Providing Robby with a tablet is a way of me providing him with another way to communicate via some of their speech applications. I appreciate this opportunity to share a little slice of our lives and at a chance at something really great.

Congratulations, Jessica! I’m so delighted to be a part of making this happen for you! Merry Christmas!

For the randomly-selected winner I used to generate a number between 1 and 4 for the remaining finalists. The number generated a “3″ and finalist #3? Was Linda!

cheylaLinda had shared how her husband has been battling cancer and how much she wants to make sure this is a memorable Christmas for their two children (adopted grandchildren). She shares: “Everyone I have known that has lost a loved one says “If I could only hear their voice one more time”.  We have a family tradition of reading “The Night Before Christmas” on Christmas Eve after the cookies and milk are securely in place.  I would like to get each of the girls a “Recordable” book that Marv can read to them (and record his voice) and they would have to share with their future families.”

I’m so delighted you’ve also won a $250 Fred Meyer gift card, Linda! I hope this will help make this a very special Christmas for your family.

I’d like to also thank Cheyla, Ashley, and Crystal for sharing their stories – you will each be receiving a $50 Fred Meyer Gift Card!

And finally, a huge thank you to Fred Meyer for their continued generosity for making this contest possible and helping to make some special families’ holiday wishes come true!

Disclosure: Fred Meyer provided the gift cards to the winning families. No other compensation was received for this contest. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more information.
