The fact that I have to send them out one by one doesn't have anything to do with how many we have, believe me.
How many are there? :)
That really sucks if you have to send them out one by one, couldn't you just add multiple email addresses and send them in groups? (I know, off topic hehe)
Sadly, she likely has to send them out one at a time because people can't be trusted. These keys are like registration keys you get with any PC game, and chances are the first person to get the e-mail would steal them all if sent in bulk.
If it was a large amount of keys it would be unreasonable to send them out one by one. An automated script could easily be constructed to go through the list of keys and the list of e-mails of the winners, and send 1 key to each winner.
The fact that she is sending them out by hand leads me to believe that the number of keys is on the order of hundreds. If there were thousands of keys, I'd assume someone would take the time to make an automated e-mail to send them out.
