Members, we are in need of some funds to run this place. We are fairly certain that we could just ask for some donations, and the funds needed would soon be donated. But, we have decided to hold a raffle instead. We are raffling off a $100 Gift Card to Lee Valley Tools, just in time for Christmas! (Forum staff are not eligible for the raffle...darn!) This gift card has been donated by Rob Lee, of Lee Valley Tools. Many thanks go out to Rob for his generosity.
To enter the raffle you must be a member of this site, and you must donate $5 (or more) between now and December 1, 2008. For each $5 donated, your name will be entered once into the drawing. Donate $10, you're in twice, $15 is three entries, and so on. On or about December 2, a name will be drawn randomly and the winner will be announced.
What we are paying:
Domain Reg $20.00
Existing Funds $99.42
Grand Total $55.98 <<- This is the amount we need to raise to run the site for another year. Any amounts over that will go into the Forum account and will be used towards future operating expenses.
Bluehost is the web hosting service we use.
vBulletin is the upgrade fee for the software, we bought the software last year, and now we pay a yearly licensing fee, for security updates etc.
Domain Registration is for keeping familywoodworking.org, familywoodworking.com and familywoodworking.net so no one else can use those domains.
Our preferred method for entries is through PayPal. Simply send $5.00 (or multiples of $5.00 for multiple entries) to:
Be sure to include your name in the Notes box on the PayPal page, so we know what name to put into the drawing.
If you absolutely can't use PayPal, we will also accept personal checks and money orders. Send an e-mail message to email@example.com if you'd like to enter the raffle with a check or money order, and we'll send you a mailing address where you can send your entry.
Please step up and buy your raffle tickets!
