CONTEST DETAILS & RULES
MLP* Pickups for Charity Contest

The Official PayPal account for the MLP pickups for charity raffle contest is :[email protected]

As of right now, paypal is the only accepted method of payment for raffle tickets. We will issue a receipt (please allow 24-48 hrs) when payment is made which will be your confirmation of the number of tickets you have bought (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or more). Tickets are one dollar ($1) US each, and you are allowed as many tickets as you would like to buy until the deadline.

When sending a payment, please send an e-mail to [email protected] with your MLP/SS.org username, (also which site you post at) your real name (or the name on the Paypal payment) address, and PayPal email address, this way they can be synced up with the paypal account and you can be marked as paid... There will be PayPal fees taken out of the donation amounts, so the total collected will be less than the total tickets sold.

If any of these requirements are not met, it is not ss.org's responsibility to make refunds or list you as having paid. You must include your name, username, paypal acct. address, and your street/mailing address to count you as having paid.

You are responsible for determining the legality of raffles/contests in your state/confederate/prefecture/city-state/country/county/province/parish/hemisphere/autocracy/monarchy/dictatorship/theocracy/fuedal government/republic/etc.

Odds of winning based solely on the number of entries. There will be 2 Grand Prize winners. Each winner will get one set of the PAF's.

Thank you and good luck!

Bobbo -

Welcome aboard. I edited this post down so it looks a bit more in keeping with what the forum members are used to. (They tend to be turned off with huge texts and things obviously ad-based.) In the future, just go simple. The people here respond best to that sort of thing.

Also deleted the duplicate post you made regarding this.

Good luck with it. Great idea, great charity. ;)

Dude, that reads like a rainbow having a seizure. :lol:

I'm a fan of the charity (I actually saw Christopher and Dana Reeve speak at one of my best friend's graduation ceremony the year before he died - it was a very moving speech), but I don't think bright, flashy colors and huge font really gives this the air of professionalism befitting such an important cause, you know?

I like to throw a thank you out to BoBBo as well for running a & supporting these charity raffles. A lot of paper work & work is involved that goes on behind the scenes .. The last one we did was for Saint Jude’s Children’s hospital & it was a great success . One interesting note I like to share is these events are for one off creations & a collaboration of the winders working together not just donating one of their products. I glad to that for the future events that Alex will be pulling all the network forums working as one on such projects. Also like to show my great gratitude to Dark Wolf for including SS.org in on this one as well
