    I came up with the idea of holding a raffle to raise funds for the site. I am making a gift basket full of crab food, items and crabby people stuff. I will take pictures of the gift basket and put them up here.

    How do you enter the raffle?
    You simply buy tickets for $1. You can buy as many or as little as you want. Each ticket you purchase will have your name on it.

    How can I buy the tickets?
    You can send money vial paypal. I will put up the pay pal address. You can send a check/cash/money order to me. PM me and I will send you my address if you don't have it already. If you send cash make sure to coneal it well in the envelope. Also I ask that you PM me that you are sending something in the mail and how much so I can keep an eye out for it.

    What will the money go towards?
    It will go to site costs and to get more prizes for contests.

    Any other questions feel free to ask! :thanks:

    Re: October Raffle

    It can start now since some people want to use snail mail and we know how USPS is at times. It will end October 31st.

    I did a raffle over at CSJ and was able top ost a video of the ticket being drawn. Since Kellie is coming to visit at that time, I will try to video tape her picking the ticket! Then I'll upload and put on the site.

    if you pay via paypal, make sure to put in the subjext heading or message that its for the raffle so I don't get confused and think I didnt get an order out from the store LOL
