If you would like to set a PayPal up I would be more than happy to help you through the steps. It's very simple. As of right now, There's really not anything to help out with this particular raffle. The best thing to do if PayPal is not an option is to drop by and the night of the live stream and play games with us. The more the marrier!

Maybe I could give you a code of a paysafe card and you would spend the amount you got from it? Would that be an option?

You could always place the amount you want to donate on a pre paid visa, these are available almost everywhere gift cards are sold, and link it to your PayPal. Unfortunately I can't do multiple different transactions so all donations will need to be funneled through our PayPal donation link during our raffle.

I already thought about doing that. The simple reason that I haven't done it until yet is that I simply don't trust E-banking...

See there's no banking involved with a pre paid visa. You just go to any store that sells them, load however much you want and done just like a gift card. No connection to any bank account.

Alright guys the numbers are in so now I'm going to lay out the event guidelines. 

When: feb. 3rd at 9 p.m. (I know it's meeting night but we will start at 9 sharp.)

 

Where: well be streaming the games we play throughout the event. (The link for viewing will be added below this heading ahoetly) if you would like to join in and play games with us we will have a designated channel just for our raffle.

 

Prizes and schedule: so how well do it is at the top of every hour one winner will be selected from the list of current donation participants. As we get further in the night and more people donate the list will get bigger. We will do this till all 6 prizes are given away. 

(3) steam gift cards worth $20 USD a piece.

(2) starter packages for star citizen

(1) crucible mx300 525 gb ssd

 

Charity: so for the majority of this we will be raising money for the national coalition for homeless veterans. Now if you haven't checked lately, you can go see I have high expectations for this. If we reach two-thirds of our goal ($400 USD) we will split the total of whatever we raise between the coalition and doctors without borders. Both organizations had a major outpouring of support so we will also support the both if possible. 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 $5 USD, the donating party will receive  (1) one ticket into the raffle. 

 

- for every $25 USD, the donating party will receive an extra ticket. This simply means at all the 25 dollar incraments, 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. 

 

For any questions feel free to reach out to me or any member of our staff. We'd be more than happy to help in any way we can.
