You're all champions (but only one of you is our holiday contest winner).

#Tackkathons

Drumroll, please. Submissions poured onto our Holiday Contest Tackkboard from around the world, and the Tackk team felt spoiled looking over so many warm wishes and fabulous gift ideas (hint, hint) — not to mention one of the largest dogs we’ve ever seen.

Hello, winner.

We fell in love with a good, old-fashioned holiday newsletter. Judy Orr’s “Dysfunction Junction” delivered an honest year-in-review, complete with multimedia, life lessons and the ever-elusive update from a reluctant family member.

Orr is a licensed Realtor in Chicago and a veteran holiday newsletter writer. We admired her willingness to switch media — broadcasting her annual update with a Tackk this year — and extend her holiday cheer with shares via her blog and social media.

A new iPad Mini is on its way from Cleveland to Chicago right now, in honor of Judy Orr’s winning holiday Tackk. Congratulations to Judy! And countless thanks to everyone who Tackked for the holidays this year!
