We Couldn’t Choose Just One! Additional Prizes for Inspirational Stories of Transition

Top 10 Giveaways -Making Room for Life

At Extra Space Storage, we’re in the business of helping people make it through life’s transitions.  We work to help people make room for life in all types of circumstances.  And we consider it an honor.

We also consider it an honor to have had so many incredible women share their stories of transition – and how they found hope in the process – as part of our giveaway contest to Tropic of Candycorn’s Moms Surf & Yoga Retreat.  The depth, resilience and optimism shown throughout the contest completely blew us away, so much so it was almost impossible to pick a winner.   While we did have to choose only one, we decided we had to honor several more for their courageous, powerful and sometimes even hilarious stories of transition and growth.  We invite you to read all of the entries here.  But be warned:  you’ll probably need a box of tissues.

In addition to Katie Dudley, who won the retreat giveaway to Costa Rica, we are happy to announce that we are awarding prizes to the following women:
