RE: Grapes For Humanity
Patty, I tend to agree with you. A lottery that ordinary people could afford would definitely work better.

That's a great idea! Brutus, what say you - can we do that?

I agree, that would be TRES COOL!Cool

I'm taking a ride with my best friend...I hope he never lets me down again.

RE: Grapes For Humanity
As someone in the fundraising biz, this blog really has my wheels spinning. I love the lottery/raffle idea and think many, many more people would donate to the cause if it were more accessible to those of us in the realm of "normal" financial means. Of course auctions give a sense of value to the item that has been donated, which is important to some, but it really does leave a huge segment of the population out of the running.

RE: Grapes For Humanity
If there was a lottery for something I valued, I'd donate in a heartbeat. There is one cause I try to donate to that does a lottery. I haven't won that compound bow they put up every year, but its a lot more fun knowing you at least have a CHANCE AND you are donating to some worthy cause.

I like this too! Great idea!

RE: Grapes For Humanity
Sorry all. I missed this action but Bubba and I are always on the look out for a way to spread good cheer. And it's nice to help those in immediate need. Always open to suggestions.....

Sacred cows make the best hamburgers.

I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'

It's not Grapes For Humanity, but it is for a good cause. Check this thread at TRF:
