Announcing the Winner of the Everyone Loves Austin Giveaway (while on painkillers)

Hey Gang!

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of the Everyone Loves Austin Tee or Tank Giveaway.

I was in a creative funk this week and in a lot of pain due to my wisdom teeth.

Good news is, I got my wisdom teeth out about two hours ago!

Now you’ll have to listen to me announce the winner of the giveaway on painkillers with my eyes half-closed.

Please email me at laurenmodery at gmail dot com if you’re the winner!

Everything is a-ok right now.



Giveaway: Wear Your Austin Pride with Everyone Loves Austin!

 I kind of like doing these giveaways. They’re a lot of fun and a great way to share with you the things I love!

I’m really really f’ing excited to be doing a giveaway with one of my favorite Austin organizations.

Everyone Loves Austin is a preservation and pride movement created by the lovely Sophia Veronica Erian (read more about ELA’s manifesto here).

When I found out about Everyone Loves Austin, it reminded me of my enthusiasm when I first moved to this city. That excitement has barely wavered and I proudly wear my Everyone Loves Austin tank when I feel particularly gushy about Austin. The tank is frequently a conversation starter with others who love this amazing city too!

The Giveaway

We are giving away one Everyone Loves austin t-shirt or tank to one lucky boy or gal!

All you have to do is:

What is Everyone Loves Austin?

ELA is an Austin pride and preservation movement created by the sweet Sophia Veronica Erian. Being a huge fan of Austin herself, she created Everyone Loves Austin as means for people to collectively share their pride for this wonderful city (think “I Love NY”).

10% of the proceeds of ELA’s merchandise goes to HAAM (Health Alliance for Austin Musicians), while another 10% goes towards Keep Austin Beautiful.

I love this tank. Every time I wear it, it’s gets a conversation going about how much we all love this city.

I will be holding a giveaway next week for an Everyone Loves Austin t-shirt or tank, so make sure to come by next week!


Who Loves Austin?

Everyone Loves Austin!

And there is a new movement that says so.

My CultureMap story yesterday featured a cool new pride and preservation initiative called Everyone Loves Austin.

They’re doing some really cool stuff and have some super cute t-shirts. Check ’em out!


When I first met Sophia Erian, founder of Everyone Loves Austin, I was struck by her infectious enthusiasm for the city. She talked about Austin like it was her child. Pride and ardor run deep through her veins and she knows that there are other people out there like her too- tons of us, actually. That is why she created the new movement Everyone Loves Austin.

Everyone Loves Austin is a two-fold initiative. The first part is “merely to make an assertion that we love Austin,” says Erian…
