about the raffle.

We've had a few questions about how the raffle will work: will there be tickets? do I have to be online to win? how do I buy chances to win? Is there a fee?

Easy, breezy answers!
  • This is a virtual "raffle" and there won't be any tickets. Instead, there will be comments!
  • The items donated by the Contributors (in the righthand menu), will be divvied into four separate prize packages.
  • Each prize package will be raffled on a different date: May 3, May 5, May 7, and May 9.
  • Four packages gives more people an opportunity to win!
  • On the dates listed, visit this blog to "see" all the prizes available for that day. All items shown on one date will be that day's prize pack - in other words, one person will win ALL the items for that day.
  • To enter the drawing, leave a comment AND donate $5 per comment. Multiple comments are encouraged, just make sure to donate $5 per comment! For instance, if you want to have 5 chances to win, donate $25 AND comment 5 times. And you are certainly allowed to enter to win on all four days!
  • To donate, use the button to your right. Make sure you include your blog name in the notes so we can match your comment to your donation!
  • If you've already contributed to the Healing Maggie Grace fund, you simply need to comment on the prize packages you'd like to win! You don't need to donate again.
  • Each prize package will be available for a little over 24 hours. When the raffle closes, we will post a note.
  • We will then ensure that all the comments and donations match up, then we'll use a random number generator to select a winner for that day's prize package!
  • Winners will be posted on the blog and will also be contacted via email.
  • ALL the money from the raffles will go directly to Teresa. No hidden fees, no maintenance costs, no strings attached. Teresa is our friend, and we want to help defray the costs of her surgery and care.
  • If you have additional questions, please email us!
