How to enter and win:

Entering is simple and easy. Once you've signed into your account, or register and verify your account, you'll be able to donate to our charity collection goal. Any amount is welcome, but to participate in the raffle the below guidelines will be used.

- for every $5 USD, the donating party will receive  (1) one ticket into the raffle. 

- for every $25 USD, the donating party will receive (1) extra ticket, so $25 = 6 tickets rather than 5  and $50 = 12 tickets, etc.

Last Charity Raffle we had someone win a set of Gunnar glasses with just 1 ($5) ticket, so it's always possible to win even with just one ticket!

While all of these organizations are a good cause, I think Doctors Without Borders can do the most imitate good with the money we donate.

Just my thoughts anyway, and any of them would be deserving of our, or anyone's funding!👍

Charity:. we will be splitting the total of whatever we raise between the world cancer research fund and doctors without borders. Both organizations had major support so we will also support both of them. It's completely up to you guys.

 

How to enter and win:

Entering is simple and easy. Once you've signed into your account, or register and verify your account, you'll be able to donate to our charity collection goal. Any amount is welcome, but to participate in the raffle the below guidelines will be used.

- for every $25 USD, the donating party will receive an extra ticket. This simply means at all the 25 dollar increments, you will receive your regular tickets along with am extra (1) ticket totally free. 

 

We've had people spend 5 dollars and win a set of Gunnar glasses so it's always possible to win even with just one ticket.

Sooooo... I've donated $50 but on the sheet of the donations list it's saying $47,75. On top of that on my profile it actually says I donated $50, not too much interested in winning just wanted all the time already to make a donation but untill now I didn't have the money for it.

Paypal (possibly banks too) always deducts an amount percentage depending on your country of origin agreement to the target country. So you did donate 50 but paypal kept 2.25$ as a fee. Receiving party unfortunately received 47.75$.

That's weird, they don't charge you a fee for sending personal money, they should have some charity feature.

Just wondering since I am already wearing regular glasses, would I be able to wear the Gunnar glasses over it? If not, if I would win, could I gift it to someone else that might be living in the States for example?

hey dutchie, they offer prescription options for their glasses. the will take your script when they make your glasses and coat them like their standard glasses. 

you are also more then welcome to gift them to anyone you like, just reach out to me if you receive a winning PM and we can talk.

For future raffles and consideration, could we look at Engineers without Borders as well.  They do a lot of good for building infrastructure in underdeveloped regions around the world.

I know charities are already laid out for this raffle, but maybe in the future, I'd love to see  Companions for Heroes  be a part of an upcoming raffle. I'm sure there is a long line for recommendations but this one encompasses military and L.E.O. who suffer from PTSD and other disorders.

no worries rain I'll make sure to omit the name. 

 

red & dragon I always go around to different places through out the year and ask random people that are involved here what cause they would like to see our next charity raffle be for. you guys keep dropping any recommendations you want I take all of it as feedback. I love hearing from you guys and trying to make this better each year. even if you have more than one recommendation feel free to drop it. this goes to anyone and everyone. 

the only thing I do as is if you have multiple please edit your first post so all the recommendations are kept in one place per person. it just makes my job a little bit easier if I dont have to hunt for them haha

I tried donating, wouldn't let me. I think that's discriminating and will be filing a complaint with the U.N.
