…drumroll, please…. the 2010 Giving Is Awesome winner is…

Toni, a very deserving individual.

… and there’s more to this story than meets the eye and more than I’m willing to reveal.

For the second year, I decided to be part of a National Holiday Photo Giveaway called “Giving Is Awesome.” The criteria was simple – nominate someone (not yourself) who you feel is most deserving of a Custom Lifestyle Photo Package — someone who wouldn’t necessarily be able to afford something like this, someone who has struggled this past year and/or has gone above and beyond what’s expected of them.

All the nominations I received were very deserving of this gift. And because of that the decision this time around was harder than I expected. Yet, I can only choose one.

The nomination came from Janee, who will receive a $50 gift card from me. Toni – the recipient of GIA 2010 – will receive a photo package worth $400. Here’s a small excerpt of the nomination Janee submitted:

The past year has been tough for Toni.  She has worked hard to provide for her two sons … she has been the stability for both of the kids. Toni give(s) the kids time, love and spends her Sunday nights with them as “family night”… This year she got a new job… and works very hard there to do the best job she can…  I am proud of the continual positive spirit she shows no matter how down things seem.
