    How were the winners chosen?

  2. Brooke says:

    Not a single one from Alabama :(

  3. Patty says:

    Thank you!!!

  4. Carrie says:

    I am somewhat disappointed that I only see one CA educator listed :( and multiple other states

  5. Rosann McGuire says:

    Every time I tried to enter a candidate, your website wouldn’t cooperate. DO you have any idea why? Thanks.
    Rosann McGuire

  6. Janet Smith says:

    Congratulations to all of the winners! Best of Luck to the rest of us on the next go round.

  7. Millie Gilliam says:

    How about Totes for Nurses!! Thanks for contributing to Totes for Teachers, my daughters are teachers!!

    • Leslie Beebe says:

      I agree. Nurses love tote bags to carry to work everyday. Everything’s always for teachers. Nurse are educators too & we are in the trenches taking care of all of our patients. I just was introduced to Vera Bradley last Christmas & I would love to win a free bag to carry. I was just laid off & could really use it.

  8. changing my name to Linda K…LOL saw 2 of those! Congratulations to all the winners!

  9. Tammy says:

    Same here. Everytime I would try to enter it would not let me either. Congrats to the winners. Just wished that it was easier for us to enter.

  10. Elaine Rennie says:

    No one was selected from Alaska either !

  11. Dorothy Rinaldi says:

    Not a single one from Connecticut either ;(

  12. Anita Blankenship says:

    How many entries did you receive? Hope you do this again. Teachers are so deserving of a little special recognition.

  13. I wish everyone would learn how to spell Pittsburgh, PA correctly. The “H” was added 100 years ago and still, we are the most misspelled city in America.

  14. Linda says:

    2 from Springfield, VA and 1 from Burke, VA, which is right next to Springfield! Where is the Vera Bradley love for our dedicated MD teachers?! :(

  15. alisha the sore loser! says:

    well i didnt win so that blows, i had an awesome teacher that would have loved a vera bradley bag! i hate contest because i never seem to win anything!

  16. Aran Johnson says:

    My name was selected, and I have recieved the Email. But on this page, my location is wrong. How do i fix this, to make sure my totes aren’t sent elsewhere?

  17. anne mayeaux says:

    Congrats to the winners!!!! Every teacher deserves one!!! What dedication most teachers have. Not to mention that the pay usually is way lower than it should be.

  18. Chazteach says:

    Thanks for the sentiment Anne – we are a hard working bunch!! Wish I would have one a bag… but I’ll keep trying!

  19. Susie says:

    Congrats to all the winners!! I guess I’ll have to buy one of those gorgeous bags :)

  20. Not a winner from WV either! Oh well, congrats!

  21. Miss J says:

    So happy to see Arkansas represented twice! WOOHOO!

  22. Julie says:

    Not a single one from Kentucky???

  23. Susan R. says:

    Didn’t win but it was fun. Nice to know there’s 100 (200 actually) smiling faces! Happy people make the world a nicer place to be! Congratulations to all and enjoy! Looking forward to the next offer! Susan – NY

  24. karen says:

    no one from MS.

  25. Carol says:

    This sweepstakes would have been nice if out of the several times I tried to enter over the entry time period, your site would have cooperated. It never worked for me.

  26. Michele says:

    Even though I didn’t win (my daughter and I are both teachers) I would like to thank Vera Bradley for having this contest. It has been a super stressful year for us, and it is nice that you all are building us up, while others are tearing us down. I absolutely love my Vera Bradley tote bags- and I continue to use my Nantucket Red and Blue ones b/c they refuse to wear out- and until they do, I won’t be getting a new one:)
    (Anyways, hopefully the next contest will include everyone who would like to win a bag:) This would be a GREAT idea for next Mother’s Day, too!)

  27. Breon says:

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win and congrats to all those who did win:)

  28. Breon says:

    I am very disappointed in the amount of people that are complaining about this give-a-way. Complaining because people from their area didn’t win and because Vera Bradley picked to honor teachers and not some other profession. They didn’t have to do it at all!! Once again congrats to ALL who won.

    • Jan says:

      This is exactly what I was scrolling to the bottom of the page to write! A contest is a chance not a guarantee. Try to be happy for the people that did win. These negative comments could really hurt someone’s feelings. I cannot believe what poor sportsmanship is displayed in some of these comments!

      • Kim says:

        I second that! I was so surprised with the negativity after a free giveaway- people need to stop feeling entitled. Thanks to VB, and Congrats to all the winners!

    • Joanne says:

      Thanks for putiing it in the right words just how I was feeling.
      I was feeling guilty for being thrilled to be one of those chosen.

  29. Joanne says:

    I noticed someone else said they received an e-mail saying they won but location was wrong on winners list, same thing happened to ,mine. Was also worried they had my address wrong too.

  30. alliboo says:

    No one from Louisiana was selected either :0(

    • alliboo says:

      Huge congrats to those who were selected and big thanks to Vera Bradley for thinking of teachers! Greatly appreciated!

  31. Ashley says:

    I saw waaaaay too many from a few selected states….also, one of my friends wanted one really badly and she’s only 11…she was like crying.

    maybe next time, she’ll win something.

  32. Joy E says:

    Thank you. So happy I won. I never win and this was a real surprise!!

  33. Karen Zwissler says:

    Happy for the winners…maybe next time for the rest of us. Thanks for recognizing the teachers…we work so hard!!

  34. This was a wonderful idea. I’m sorry you are received so may negative comments. I am addicted to Vera Bradley bags! I love them

  35. Tara says:

    I love my tote! I got them on my front porch before I even realized that I won! Thank you so much for donating to Teachers!! We appreciate it so much!

  36. Sue Mandia says:

    I’d like to thank Vera S. for honoring me by submitting my name for this contest! I love my Vera Bradley tote , , , almost as much as I loved having her extraordinary daughter in my class this year!

  37. Shanna says:

    Aww, too bad..my kid has the most awesome dedicated teacher ever. Congrats to the winners!

  38. Sharie Greif says:

    Congrats to the winners; what a great back to school treat for all the teachers. I noticed too there was no winner from Iowa. However; it was a random drawing so statistically if more entries were received from particular states then there would be a higher chance of selecting a winner from that state. I don’t think we’d want the Vera staff picking our name and then throwing it back because they already had a winner from our area.

  39. Jan Fuller says:

    Thanks I was a winner for lovely young teacher and also myself. Got them day after email. thanks so much for selecting my entry.J Fuller Terre Haute

  40. Kendall Loo says:

    There were a TON of winners from PA! Go PA teachers! Woot Woot!

  41. Callie hood says:

    Congrats from Tennessee to all Winners. What a way to honor our teachers and start their year off with a smile. Thank you Vera Bradley for your generious gift idea.
    We all love Vera Bradley! Go Vols, Go!

  42. Totes says:
