SAAAAANTA CLAUS IS COMIN’ TO TOWN! Call me Santa’s Helper because I’m SO STOKED to announce all 73 winners of my 12 Days Giveaways! I had an absolute BLAST with this year’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways and I hope you did, too – there’s truly nothing I lovelovelove more than giving (gift-giving is my favorite part of the holidays!), so being able to give back to YOU who make my job even possible is the best gift of all! Apologies it took a hot sec to get all winners announced – they all needed to be randomized + verified before they could be finalized, and with how many participating girlfriends of mine were involved, too, it was a bit of a feat coordinating everything + ensuring that all winners actually did what they needed to do to be eligible to actually take home the prize! 😉
First off, THANKYOUSOMUCH to everyone who entered to win! A big fat CONGRATULATIONS to all of the winners – there are over 70 over you, so I hope your prizes help make the Christmas season more fun this year. 🙂 To everyone who did not win, no worries – I’ll still be doing WEEKLY GIVEAWAYS on my Instastories (@ericaligenza), so stay tuned there to win fun stuff every single week.
Each Day is pictured below, and its corresponding winners are listed with it. For some, of course I had the help of some of Santa’s elves (aka my girlfriends LOL), so if you won a specific girl’s prize and/or if someone specific is going to be handling the fulfillment of your prize directly, that’s also noted below.
IMPORTANT: TO CLAIM YOUR PRIZE
If you won something from a friend of mine, it’s noted below in parantheses behind your name and you can simply reach out to her directly on Instagram to claim your prize if you don’t hear from her first! 😉 They’re truly embodying Santa’s Helpers to help me get everyone’s size info, so that your prizes are shipped ASAP.
If you won something from me, pleasepleaseplease email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize. Make the email subject line “DAY X Giveaway Winner”, and in the email body, put your Instagram handle, full name, and mailing address. This is to ensure we can get everything handled ASAP so that all winners have their winnings in time for Christmas!
SO, without further adieu, our 12 Days of Giveaways winners. Drumroll please…

DAY 12: $250 to a CHARITY OF YOUR CHOICE (+ SURPRISE – $250 FOR YOU, TOO!)
WINNER: @mrsjillianharris for Stanley’s Dream
SURPRISE RUNNERS UP: $100 to Feeding America on behalf of @mallory-_09 AND $100 Now I Lay me Down to Sleep on behalf of @madison_h24
I was FLOORED by how many of you had such incredible stories of personal connections to causes + charities that are doing such fabulous work, and it made it near impossible to choose! I ended up praying over this one in particular because I really wanted to be able to help make a difference this season, and it led to not being able to choose just one winner.
Quick note on each of the charities:
Jillian’s family founded Stanley’s Dream after her cousin, Stan died from a brain tumor at age 14. His dream was to go to college, so they now give scholarships to seniors going to college every year, as well as providing research grants to hospitals to support childhood brain cancer research.
Mallory’s chosen charity was Feeding America. They provide for over 200 food banks across the US! Statistically speaking, 1 in 9 person struggle with hunger in America – and I think that’s especially hard to see around the holidays when so many of us have full tables + full bellies. Their website says that $1 can provide 10 meals to families through their work, so here’s hoping we’re giving 1,000 meals to families in need this season!
Madison’s chosen charity is Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. They’re a nonprofit made up of mostly volunteers who assist grieving parents after the loss of their baby by providing remembrance photos. Earlier this year, Madison’s cousin + wife experienced a stillbirth a month before the baby was due. I have so many friends personally who struggle with infertility, have had miscarriages, and/or have experienced other blatant tragedies in this realm, and I feel far too blessed to have Olivia Grace – especially being in the NICU for so long and knowing how our story could’ve turned. Remembering all angel babies will always have a place in my heart!
Happy 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways!
May you have the merriest week-before-Christmas!
