Last gift card winner before Christmas

Today another random name was drawn to win the last gift card that will be given away before Christmas is here. Congratulations, and happy holidays!

If you missed this week's deadline, don't worry, I'll resume gift card drawings starting on January 8th. So, you still have a chance to win!

Encourage your coworkers to participate as well. Thank you!

Last gift card drawing before the holidays

This is the last week for participants to enter the $50 gift card drawing for my survey before the holidays, so get on over there and complete the survey if you haven't already! If you've already completed it, you remain in the drawing until your name is drawn.

Need a flyer to post at your agency, hand out to staff, or put in staff mailboxes? Here's one you can download and print:

Thank you to all who have helped me get the word out about the survey, and thank you to all who have participated! 

Weeks 3 & 4 gift card drawings are done!

Well, I've fallen behind a little on posting updates, but I just wanted to put it out there that Weeks 3 and 4 gift card winners have been notified. Congratulations!

Later in 2014 or early 2015, I'll post some of the preliminary results from the study. So, stay tuned and bookmark this blog so you'll be the first to know!

Data collection timeline

I wanted to let you all know that I plan to start the survey sometime in late October, hopefully no later than November 1st. As you'll see, there's a page at the top called "Take the Survey!" where I'll post a link once the survey is ready. Get your mouse-clicker-finger ready, because November 1st will be here before we know it!
