NOTE: The raffle has now been extended through July 31st!

Okay, folks, we are holding a fundraising raffle to help the Star Kids reach their dreams of high school!

After an initial donation of $5 for your first ticket, you can help us spread the word and get an additional raffle ticket for each of the following:
  • Blogging about the raffle
  • Posting a button on your website/blog
  • Tweeting about the raffle
  • Facebooking about the raffle
Leave a comment on this post saying you entered the raffle (you don't have to say how much you donated) so we can check our donation records for your name, and provide links to your blog post/tweet/Facebook so we can verify your additional tickets. You can also do this by email to shallee.mcarthur[at]gmail[dot]com.

The raffle ends on July 31st! Three winners will be selected by using random.org (each person is eligible to win only one prize).
