Ask Without Fear!

turns 5 on April 1, 2013!

But I'm starting to celebrate now. 🙂

Over the last few weeks, I've been emailing people on why fundraising tips email list and on Fundraising Kick and telling people on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ that I was giving away 2 tablets, a Kindle Fire HD and a Google Nexus 7.

The only way to enter was to write a review of Ask Without Fear! on Amazon by 10 a.m. Eastern on October 25.

Good, Bad, or Ugly

I was clear that I wanted honest reviews: good, bad, or ugly. The number of stars wouldn't increase the odds of being chosen. And to make sure it was truly random, I used (Thanks to the folks at Reliant Studios for telling me about Randomizer!)

And the winners are...

And the winners are #11 and #17!!!
Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD randomizer winners

  • #11 is Jon Swanson creator of cool things like 300 Words a Day and a pastor in Fort Wayne, IN. He wins the 32GB Kindle Fire HD.
  • #17 is Robin Glossner director of development at James V. Brown Library in Williamsport, PA. She'll be receiving the 16 GB Google Nexus 7.

Both tablets are making headlines. Both are the maximum memory available at the time of this writing.

This is the start of the celebration

I'm not sure what else I'll do to celebrate the first 5 years of Ask Without Fear!. But like celebrations at Disney, I'm planning on making this last 18 months! Feel free to submit your ideas below.

Here are the reviews Jon and Robin wrote.
