The lights are on
Veteran Member - Level 14
I just wanted to give everyone an update on Team GIO’s Extra
Life activity. We are now currently up
to 13 members registered. This is a great start. I know it’s still the summer,
but the earlier you register the more time you have to plan and fund raise. I’m
hoping the coming weeks will at least double the total members were are
Team GIO has already raised $1318.33 out of our $15,000
goal! This is a more than amazing start. At this pace, we should be able to
break our goal amount when the actual event rolls around in November.
Also, it was decided that we will be doing another digital raffle
this year. I will be keeping track of the raffle tickets this year as well. The
system will be exactly the same as it was last year. Raffle tickets can be earned
through four different methods:
I will be using a pretty neat program I coded on my off work
hours. I have tested it, and it works really well. Also, if you recruit a member to the team,
please inbox me (contact info below) your name and the name of the person you
recruited so I am able to keep a clean record of raffle tickets. As the date of
Extra Life rolls around, the raffle prizes will be announced. At that point I
will let everyone know what info they need to send me, along with what prizes
you want to be entered in to win and how many tickets to use. Remember, the more
money you raise, the more chances you have to win! I will make sure to let
everyone know when the deadline is for entries. The drawings will happen one or
two days after the event.
You do have the option not to participate in the raffle. You
simply need not do anything with your raffle tickets. You are not able to transfer
your raffle tickets to another person, but you may transfer the prize to
another person if you win (since it will be your property at that point).
Since I am putting together the raffle, I will be ineligible
to win any prizes. I will be donating as many prizes as I can to this raffle.
If anyone else would like to donate a prize to the raffle, please contact me
via the info below about what you would like to donate. I would love to start putting
together the prize list as soon as possible and work out delivery methods to
The raffle is a huge incentive to join Team GIO and raise
money. Even if you are unable to participate in the event on Nov. 2nd, you can still join Team GIO (automatic 2 raffle tickets) and help raise money
for this cause.
I would also like to thank Eric (@GI_Jolt815) for drawing up
our new Team GIO banner!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact
me via any method below. Keep working hard and raising money for the kids!
