And the winners are…

We recently held a New Year’s giveaway where we picked three people to win a box of USANA goodies plus $100 donated to the charity of the winner’s choice.  The process of picking the winners (one from a comment on our blog, one from a fan of our Facebook page, and one from Twitter) was very involved and scientific.

We printed out all of the comments from the blog post and meticulously cut them up, threw them into a box and Zachary, with the help of his son Sawyer, picked the winning comment.

The winning entry

Next, we went to the Larsen Global page on Facebook and decided to use a random number generator to choose a winner from all of the people who follow us on Facebook.  I asked the program to pick a number between 1 and 1,156 and, lucky for us, we drew a low number, 89.  I then went to Facebook and found the 89th person that follows us.

Our Facebook winner

With Twitter, we decided to pick a number between 1 and 22 (this is the number of pages of Twitter followers), and then a number between 1 and 20 (this is the number of followers on a page.  So, we picked page 7 and follower number 10.

Our Twitter pick

So, without further ado, the winners of a USANA gift box (worth over $300) and $100 donated to the charity of your choice are:

  • From Blogger, “R and T”
  • From Facebook, Ivan Then
  • From Twitter, Jacob Palmer

If you have won our New Year’s giveaway, please email me at with your shipping address and choice of charity.

Thank you to everyone who participated and thank you for all of the nice comments on the blog, on Facebook and on Twitter.  This was fun for us and we would like to do it again.  We hope 2010 is a great year for all.

Happy New Year,

Larsen Global
