Here's the prize breakdown:

We are going to be able to draw NINE names to win prizes! And tomorrow, I'm going to the Heartland Blood Center and the ladies there will choose the names, and if all goes well, it will be documented on camera and shown to you via a blog video on Wednesday!

The first name chosen will be the LAST prize winner, and we'll work our way UP to the grand prize winner, announcing that winner LAST! Just like they do that in the Academy Awards. You know, Best Picture, they always wait till your eyes are half glued shut from exhaustion and pure boredom from stupid acceptance speeches, and then at like 11:38 p.m. they'll say, "And now we have the nominees for Best Picture of the Year!"

Yeah, that's how we'll do that tomorrow, just for fun!

Here is the list of prizes --

To be clear, the first name drawn tomorrow will win:
Two movie tix and a coupon for a Baker's Square pie

Second name drawn will win:
Three movie tix and a coupon for a Baker's Square pie

Third name drawn will win:
$10 Target gift card and a coupon for a Baker's Square pie

Fourth name drawn will win:
$15 Target gift card

Fifth name drawn will win:
$15 McDonald's card

Sixth name drawn will win:
$25 Lonestar or Outback and a don8 bl%d t-shirt

Seventh name drawn and the third place prize:
$25 and a don8 bl%d t-shirt

Eighth name drawn and the second place prize:
$50 and a don8 bl%d t-shirt

Last and ninth name drawn and the Grand Prize winner will receive:
$75 and a don8 bl%d t-shirt

Some other lucky donors may receive ice cream, but that's for me to know and you to maybe find out.

MAJOR, MAJOR, MAJOR THANKS TO THE FIRST ANNUAL MANIC MOMMY VIRTUAL BLOOD DRIVE'S PRIZE COMMITTEE:

MyLHIBug because without this generous Cool-Dad Blogger, we wouldn't have half the awesome prizes we have! Originally, when this contest was conceived, I had thought I could donate $1 per donation. Well, that's not enough to thank you guys, so we decided to try to do one dollar per lives saved, and THEN SOME! So, between MyLHIBug we threw out some extra fun and cash your way so there are lots more prizes originally planned!

And also, Prize Committee Member (we just decided we had a committee like TODAY! LOL) Melissa at Hope for the Hopeless has been instrumental in this contest! She's held her own gig over on her site as well, and teamed up alongside to offer gift cards as prizes at her site and at Manic Mommy's!

We're already dedicated to making this an annual Blog event with major sponsors for next year with loads of fabulous prizes and more fun beginning next January so keep track of what's going on! You won't want to miss out, and what's a pint of blood anyway?

Check back tomorrow for a video featuring the drawing of our nine winners!

And you know, even though this little Manic Contest has rolled to an almost close, there's nothing stopping you but the sleeve that's covering up that arm of yours...

Go out and donate!

You won't believe how good it'll make YOU feel.

More so than that, you won't believe how good it'll make SOMEONE ELSE FEEL!

Catch you all tomorrow!

Peace UP!

Did you call E! or the TV Guide channel to show the red carpet show?

How awesome would THAT be?

Check your email, the "prize committee" kicked in a little something extra. :)

I'm a sucker for good causes, and causing trouble.

Have a GREAT AWARDS show!!

Melisa said...

DUDE! I never said "I don't wanna win". I ALWAYS want to win.

But (Note: sap alert!) I feel like I've already won in doing the good deed of giving blood...and spending time with you! Bwahahahaha

You are hilarious! (and shy!)

kay said...

Robin said...

Wear something slinky on the red carpet. And don't forget the tiara!

Bina said...

Wow! Those are some great prizes and I can't wait to see the video tomorrow!

Tanya said...

Peach- Baker's Square Pie is an awesomely delicious dessert. The restaurant is a Chicagoland Specialty.

Manic- My picture isn't on there, but as long as my name is in the drawing, I'm happy. It was a good thing you did by guilting us all into donating. Well except for your BFF Swishy. Needles aren't scary when you don't look at them.

Manic Mom said...

Tanya! Got you up there now!!! So sorry I missed you!!!!

Sammie said...

Aww thanks fro your mention hun :) that was sweet. Ooooh AWARDS CEREMONY :D yay haha.

Well Done Everyone for your FABULOUS donations *claps a HUGE round of applause to each and every donor (and those who thought about it, as the thought counts too) *

Sauntering Soul said...

I love the way you're doing the prize drawing. You're an awesome, fabulous woman and I feel honored to have entered your contest!

Good luck to all of my fellow bleeders!

P.S. I really hope I get one of those t-shirts. My bum is already too big to eat pie.

Sarah said...

Oooooh, am I the only one excited for tomorrow's award ceremony? I'll be anxiously awaiting!!!

Sarah said...

Okay - duh. Seriously. I thought I was up to date on your blog entirely. Not so much as I just realized TODAY is the award ceremony! GASP!!!! Oooooh, American Idol and awards all in one night! Be still my heart! LOL

Kim Stagliano said...

OK, I am just to F'ing stupid for this contest. My brain was in that pint.... I've watched the video. It poops out at 1:56 on me. I am not on the the first nine names of the list. Therefore I did not win, yes? OK. Fine by me. Congrats to all the winners. I am still too stupid for words!

:)

Manic Mom said...

Kim we had extra $$ for prizes so there are actually ELEVEN winners...

I apologise in advance for gate-crashing your website, but there is something I think you all should know...Sammie Banks is a fraud..I am a member of a pregnancy forum and she has just been caught out having told numorous lies re. being pregnant with twins and one dying.. she stole somebody elses pictures of a dead baby and 'her bump' and also put these on the pregnancy forum.. she has also been banned from many other pregnancy forums! She also makes out that she is some great charity worker and asks online for donations.

Apologoes again for intruding on your site..but just thought you should know.

Manic Mom said...

Anon, if you can, would you please email me at manicmommy@comcast.net to discuss this? I'd appreciate it very much!

Thanks

Hi Manic Mommy

I have sent my admin a message re. this situation, asking her whether she would like me to contact you, or whether she would like to take over and mail you herself with further details (she knows a lot more on the situation than I do)

I send you another message/email when I have heard back from my admin.

Kind Regards

I have mailed you

Manic Mom said...

Yes, thank you--i got your email--I am concerned--she has tried to befriend me but never asked for money.

Sammie Banks really is a fake...She is all over Face book now doing the same thing. Please guys contact the local police with your information about her I beg you.
