RAFFLE IS CLOSED.
Thank you to those that participated! Winners will be contacted Oct 2nd! Please disregard the email that the item has shipped, this is an error sent to all entrants, my apologies! You will get a personal email if you have won.
Donate for a raffle ticket - each $10 ticket purchased can be for your choice of one of the 11 hand crafted items in the raffle, all from Maine artisans, just select which one in the drop down list. Unlimited number of tickets and choices can be selected!* All proceeds benefit the work of Black Voters Matter, an organization dedicated to increasing power in marginalized, predominantly Black communities.
How to enter:
- Select each item from drop down list above and be sure to click the name in that drop down list to see a picture associated with that name and title (note that clicking the pictures below the big main pic does not change the name/title showing in the drop down box!)
- Select the quantity of entries you want for each item. This can be 1 entry for 1 item, or 2 entires for one item and 1 entry for another, but each 'quantity' is a $10 entry and there is only one item available for each listing.
For example: if I choose 2 entries for Emily Shaffer's earrings and 1 entry for Cat Bates bracelet, it will be for a total donation of $30.00, which will get you 2 entries into the raffle for Emily's earrings, and 1 entry into the raffle for Cat's bracelet. Winner for each piece will only be getting the one item that is up for raffle (2 entries doesn't get you 2 pairs of earrings). All donations are going to the Black Voters Matter organization no matter who wins the items, so it's a win win for all!
