What is it?
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey devastating Houston and other surrounding areas in Texas, a group of Nintendo artists have come together to create a fundraising event to aid those in need. The creators involved in the event will be donating their custom Nintendo themed items, which will be given away raffle style to anyone who donates to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund!
When is it?
On September 8th, the raffle will go live. All donations made between September 8th and September 15th will receive a set number of raffle tickets, valid for entry into our prize drawings.
How does it work?
We are asking that those interested in helping Hurricane Harvey victims donate directly to the relief fund. Every donation that is made will receive a set number of raffle tickets, based on the dollar value of the donation.
It is broken down as follows:
$10 (One Raffle Ticket)
$11-20 (Three Raffle Tickets)
$21-25 (Five Raffle Tickets)
$26-50 (Eight Raffle Tickets)
$51+ (Ten Raffle Tickets)
Each raffle ticket that is under a given persons name will increase their chance of winning one of the artist created prizes. We feel it is only fair to increase the odds for those who donate more, but we do not want to exclude anybody. That is why we are doing this as a raffle, instead of an auction. Everybody has an equal chance at winning a prize, and everyone gets to donate to the cause, regardless of income level.
Prizes will be drawn at random. Users will not be able to select which prize they would like to be entered in the raffle for. All raffle tickets will be drawn from the same pool at random, and prizes will be pulled at random.
Raffle tickets will be pulled via live stream which will be announced at a later date, with the prize being announced prior to the winner being pulled.
What are our goals?
We would like to raise as much money as possible for the victims in Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas. We do not have a set limit, but would like to be able to raise at LEAST $500 combined for the charities involved. This is about the same amount that the creators are contributing on their own via raffle prizes.
What Organizations are we raising funds for?
Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund (Requires a minimum donation of $10)
