Good Luck to everyone. I tip my hat to you.
It was so thrilling to get the notice from Dave last month, that I had won 7th place!! And then to watch the video clip, which is always great, seeing what an incredible family we have at the head of this incredible organization, - this all gave me such a warm feeling.

The first few times, I only bought one ticket, but the last time I splurged and bought five. I would encourage more people from around the world, to take a chance. It's great fun - always nice to see who the recipients are, and if we outsiders win, we have the great fun of choosing who we would like to gift with our prize. Rolling my eyes. I won 50 acorns, which I split between two deserving people whose names I see on so many of the photos in our database. It felt so good to be able to do this.

Now I guess we have to wait til sometime next year to do this again. Whistling Cheers, HemNorth

You're welcome! Those videos are so much fun. Whether we win a raffle prize or not, we all win because we get to watch the video. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby
