We got a bit lax about our updates on this year's More Than Words campaign to benefit The Mike Zimmer Foundation, and that's really nobody's fault but mine. But, the campaign has concluded and the prizes winners have been decided.
Overall, we wound up smashing the initial goal of raising $10,000 for the foundation, and wound up with a final total of $15,113. Gotta give credit to Brett Anderson, Adam Warwas, and the rest of the crew over at Vikings Territory for really spearheading this entire operation. Sure, we participated, but this whole thing is really their baby, and it wouldn't have been possible to get The Mike Zimmer Foundation all that money without them leading the way.
So, per the rules, for every $10 that a person donated to the campaign, they got one entry into a drawing for a number of pretty sweet prizes. The folks from VT have drawn the winners for those prizes, so let's tell you who they were, shall we?

And there you have it, folks. If you are the winner of one of those prizes, congratulations to you!
We'd also like to send a huge thank you to everyone that donated to this year's campaign. The money that's been raised is going to allow The Mike Zimmer Foundation to do a lot of great things. We're already looking forward to next year's campaign and hoping to raise even more money for a great cause.
