After getting an unbelievable amount of great submissions, the hand of fate has chosen a winner. The Hand of Fate, in this case, is my son, Eli, who picked the winner out of a hat (helmet) last night.
Collin Flanagan of Bayside, NY is our No Good Deed Contest Winner! Congratulations, Collin. Here is the email we got from your wife, entering you in the contest:
My name is Grace Flanagan, I recently read about this contest and immediately thought of my husband Collin. During Sandy my husbands family lost their home in Breezy Point. The very next day my husband along with many of his close friends who also lost homes organized a Sandy relief center and drop off location at CJ Sullivan’s in Bayside New York. This center ran 24 hours a day collecting all donations from canned food to baby supplies and everything in between. As many of us know the gas crisis was hindering the delivery of these much needed supplies. My husband and his friend work around the clock finding volunteers to donate buses vans and trucks. My husband also made trips to Connecticut to get the gas to fuel these vehicles to deliver these goods to his fellow neighbors in Breezy Point. My husband is a very giving man and I would love nothing more than to be able to give back to him. Since bike building is his passion I thought this contest suited him perfectly!
