Remember how our fundraising was floundering for a few months? So last month we tried something different. Instead of donating to our causes, we took the $200 we would normally donate and spent it on a $200 Walmart gift card. Then, for every dollar donated to charity through our fundraising pages, we placed the donor's name in a drawing. The first weekend of this month, we drew the winner. Dylan and Delaina Whitehead were the lucky winners.
When all was said and done, $270 was donated to Arkansas Children's Hospital, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and Soaring Wings Christian Home & Ranch through our fundraising pages. And this was our first time to try this! Since the contest generated more than we could give, we're doing it again.
"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." ~ -- Luke 6:38
So every dollar you donate to one of the three charities linked above (through our fundraising pages) will earn you an entry into the drawing for this month's $200 Walmart gift card. You can use the card for groceries, gas, or pretty much anything you need. Or, you can give it to a less fortunate person and multiply your own charitable giving through this contest. :)
If you donate $10, you'll be entered 10 times in our drawing. A $20 donation will get you 20 entries. Your $100 charitable contribution will put your name in our drawing 100 times! So the more you give, the better your chances of winning the gift card. The actual odds of being drawn will depend on the amount of money we raise this month, but I'd bet they'll be better than winning $200 in the lottery.
So here's your chance to give to one of these great charities, and have a chance of getting something back, maybe even more than your donation. If you needed a reason to give, this is it! The Whiteheads have jump started this month's contest today with their gift to Soaring Wings Ranch! Now it's your turn.
And always remember, we don't touch a dime of your money! Our fundraising pages are hosted by the charity itself or a 3rd party site that handles the entire transaction. So give today and feel good about it, because this might just be the best bang for your charitable giving buck you'll ever find.
