Yep, you heard me. All the tickets are sold. 100 raffle tickets at five dollars apiece equals five hundred dollars donation for the Animal Compassion Network! YAY!! And better than that? People gave a few dollars here and there over ticket cost...and a few said keep the money anyway when I had to send back news the tickets were gone. I don;t have a true total as yet, I am waiting for some checks to clear and, until the 15th and the basket drawing, I am leaving pathways open to any donations still to come. I limited the field to make these tickets and the prize more appealing, as if the cause wouldn't be enough, and because I had no idea what the response would be. I am so thrilled to have sold out a whole week ahead of schedule.
I won't change the terms of the raffle. 100 tickets stay at 100 and the 15th is the drawing. Next time, we'll do a bigger basket and a wider pool of tickets. And yes, there will be a next time. But not to worry, I will keep it to a bi-annual event. One for autumn and one for spring...the seasons when the births of feral and unwanted domestic animals goes through the roof. I will get more creative and the rewards will improve over time, and I hope you will all have fun helping me help ACN.
Now the suspense...oh, my favorite part! The TEASE!...we get to endure days and days of waiting...mwahahaha! Perfect! Also, I am going to give the final total when I announce the winner. :) Heh...so maybe I am tormenting the winner and ACN.
Did I mention I love you all to bits!?!?!
