Hey ActiveRain, We Have a Winner!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Happy Grasshopper

We have a winner… cue the trumpets!

Before we get to the lucky winner (and his charity!), we’d like to take the time to thank all of the ActiveRain participants for their super amazing submissions. While the winner was drawn at random, we read each and every entry. Contests such as this aren’t simple giveaways, but rather an opportunity to learn more about others and what motivates them. We learned a lot from our fellow ActiveRain users this holiday season, and the experience was truly a blessing.

Ready for the winner? We thought you might be.

The winner is Joe Pryor of The Virtual Real Estate Team in Oklahoma City, OK! Congratulations Joe!!!

Joe’s submission was definitely a great one. His “5 Points of Thankfulness I am Mindful About” was exactly what we were hoping to achieve with our contest. It highlights people in his life that have made both his career and life better - a great piece we suggest everyone read!

University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center’s Moon Shot programJoe has decided to give the $1500 to the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center’s Moon Shot program, which helps patients and their families fight cancer every day. Finding a cure for cancer is a cause everyone can relate to, and we’re glad to do our small part on behalf of Joe!


Finally, all entrants will receive 1000 ActiveRain points for their wonderful submissions. On behalf of everyone here at Happy Grasshopper…

Have a wonderful holiday season and, as always, stay happy. =)

Congratulations to Joe Pryor -- a well deserved win to say the least and a worthy recipient of the award. Lost a friend to cancer in October, my husband is going through treatment now, and I have a 90 year old sister who is dying from cancer.
