To Mr. Sweepy & all the members of Sweepstakes Today,

A couple of weeks ago I asked Mr. Sweepy to help advertise my sweepstakes entry into the Hyundai "Win An Epic Play Date" sweeps. I had never done this before (and I usually never enter essays) so I was unfamiliar with the process. But at the urging of some other members I wrote to Mr. Sweepy. He graciously took the time to post my entry request in the new sweepstakes category. Many, MANY members responded by voting for my entry. I am humbled by the efforts of so many people that I don't even know (and don't know me personally). So on behalf of myself and my family I thank you all very much.

The good news is that I received a $100 prize as one of the top 20 vote-getters, and qualified for the grand prize. I have yet to hear if the judging has taken place; but regardless, none of this would have been possible without all of you (and especially Mr. Sweepy and all that he does to provide a hobby for so many of us!).

To each of you who voted every day (or even if you only voted once) may your Lucky List become your winning list for the rest of 2013, and beyond. Again, THANK YOU to all of you.

  I am so happy to see this, Kevin, and have been looking every day since I was notified that I too won one of these prizes. 

Congratulations, you are so deserving.  I truly hope you win one of the top four prizes...we both could! 

I think this would be interesting for many members to browse through the entries that are on the Epic Play Date site.   Very very few of them reflect an "essay", and most are merely a sentence or even just a few words!!

This is a great example for you to see how much better your odds are in these type of sweeps...that require any effort beyond pushing a couple of submit buttons.

It makes it very exciting when you know your chances are much better than average!! 


I truly hope you win, Kevin, as I am certain you have one of the most inspiring essays entered.

Hi Kevin, congrats on the $100. win. I really hope you win one of the big prizes. Your essay touched me, and I voted everyday for you. My husband is a three time cancer survivor, and has also survived 2 heart attacks and a major stroke and also other health problems. You are a fighter and have been blessed with a wonderful family. I truely hope you win one of the trips. so you and your family can enjoy a nice vacation. I'm glad it's a judged contest, because you had a fantastic essay, and have a great chance of winning. Please let us know the outcome. Good luck and God bless.

Glad our efforts paid off, once we get this type of request on our lucky list, it just real easy to enter every day.  Hope you both get a trip out of this!
