Due to several recent and generous donations gifted to me I am able to offer my modest and meager 'stash' to a few lucky new members.
Just reply to this post that you need a few acorns and I am prepared to issue 5 acorns per message until my stash of 40 runs out.
If just one new member wins a raffle prize due to my generosity through others gifting me, I will be immensely happy. Hilarious!
Who would like some acorns??? I tip my hat to you.

Oops, that is now 47 acorns! Thanks to all of my generous friends!!!

Let's go everyone! I still have enough acorns for 11 more people. I would like nothing better then to pass them on to new people to the site.
My good friends have gifted me acorns and we would like nothing better then to pass them on so that you can participate in the raffle. It is a great event, fabulous prizes and a wonderful video of the children during the drawing.
This is just a great event, on a great site, so please join us!

Hello, I've never done a raffle before on here. If you still have some acorns, I would be most grateful and thank you in advance. If not, thank you anyway.
