Title: Help Out A DDF'er In Need And Win. Tizku Li'Mitzvos. Thank You.
Post by: Dan on October 21, 2013, 06:48:17 PM
Please see Wiki for latest updates.

If you've been following this thread  (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=32956.0)you may know that a longtime DDF'er who has a young family was arrested for being on the scene at the time of the sting operation.  Many of you have probably even met him in the real world.

A generous DDF'er is donating a round-trip paid (earn miles :) ) coach ticket to Israel on Delta (up to $1,200 value) a raffle prize to anyone who donates $100 or more to his fund here. (https://ncfjeorg.clhosting.org/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/2362984/jewish/PIDYON-SHIVUYIM/lang/en)

All donations made via that link will go towards that DDF'ers legal fund.

Please don't ask who it is or PM me for more info as I don't have any.

Please add yourself to the Wiki if you have made a $100+ donation.

Tizku l'mitzvos and may we hear good news!

The Pidyun Shvuum campaign (the general one) has gotten attention already in the media anyway, and I don't that DD would make it worse.

In any case, I think that putting it up for one day wouldn't kill it.

I hear both ways. And the site isn't a Jewish one per se, so it may turn people off and lose followers, something for Dan to think about. But if it is a "paid" ad it is also different...

It would probably be a good idea to have some kind of clause that winning may be subject to verification that the donation was actually made.

I don't think it's an issue at this point, but just in case we get a bunch of new members who donated...

I see it both ways. 1. People don't want to fork over $100 so don't give anything. 2. People who would normally give $18, $36, $54 are now doing $100+ because that's what everyone is doing.

But for a guy that is need of 500K for a good defense team, we have to keep the numbers high.

Whoever can't meet $100 should donate for God's sake. Not every $36 has to come along with a prize. a prize is a push to up your donations a bit...

I understand your point. But not everyone here is capable of donating $100+ you also want a push for those $36 - $50 donations.

Obviously the incentive shouldn't be compared to the $100 one. .

Well said.

The prize for small donations is the Miztva.

The prize for the bigger donations is to push people to give more.

Either way, I think people that donate even under $100 should add their name to the wiki (separate column) as this should incent people to give.

Much better if every $100 gets you a ticket. I think there should be a incentive to the guy that always gives $180 to give $200 and $560 to $600 etc. Just my personal opinion

I know me personally I'd do $200 instead of $180 if it was every $100...

But it'll get complicated with the lesser raffle amounts. Suppose it'll just take some addition on the part of whoever is in charge if the raffle.

The whole point is that Dan wouldn't say "look at DDF". He would actually answer. Or they could chit chat about more advanced things. How many people would pay decent money to get Dan in a 1 on 1 format? I bet a lot would

proposal: We have 3 thresholds. 1. for every $20 donated, 2. for every $50 donated and 3. For every $100 donated.

So if I donate $200 I will have 10 entries to the $20 raffle, 4 entries to the $50 raffle, and 2 entries to the $100 raffle.

And all donated prizes will fall into those 3 categories.

Any objections?

But he's not going to answer the really good stuff so it may be good for a noob, but for an experienced guy it's a waste of an hour.

So if I donate $200 I will have 10 entries to the $20 raffle, 4 entries to the $50 raffle, and 2 entries to the $100 raffle.

And all donated prizes will fall into those 3 categories.

Any objections?

would this help?

i.e. can a $1 win all the small prizes?

-Can the winner of the grand prize get cash value?

-What order are the prizes going to be chosen?

-If the grand prize is chosen first, can the winner request a different prize instead?

The raffle is organized completely independently of the charity organization. The charity does not even know about the existence of the raffle. So the raffle prizes are literally gifts to the winners. Literally.

There is an acknowledgment email address. You can get a volunteer to do all the updates and acknowledgments can be sent to that persons email. This is also a verification method. Anyone knows if they acknowledge the amount or if that just a donation was made.

So to clarify, someone should set up a quick web site with information about the raffle and the link to donate. On that website it will also mention that in order to join the raffle, you must forward your donation confirmation email along with your name and donation amount.

One or two people will man the email account and update the totals.

Technically it's more complicated than that. There was a story from a long time ago where there was a raffle and after the winner was picked they discovered that someone who was supposed to be in it didn't have a ticket in for him (or someone had 2 by mistake?). The halachic ruling given was that since he didn't have a chance to win (or had more chances than he was supposed to?) the entire raffle is invalidated.

Perhaps the prizes should be used for a much larger raffle campaign? I get people at my door selling $5 tickets for an ipad. I am sure if we did this with local schools we can get much more then 8k.  (number probably not accurate some ppl like to give quietly)

There are 2 seperate things

1) a fund setup

2) a raffle setup by DDF

If you chose to donate to the fund, it doesn't mean that you are getting into the raffle.

If you donate via DDF, then you can get in.

All donations via DDF need to have the email confirmation submitted to jj@dd.com

Reminds me of the old tale of the poor man heading to the marketplace to sell his only possession,  a horse, when suddenly it dies.
He came up with a plan and made a raffle for a horse.
When somone noticed that the prize was a dead horse, he complained that the raffle is not fair.
The poor man answered, if the winner doesn't want a dead horse, I will give him a full refund for his ticket.

From the "Raffle Details" section it looks like there are only three donation options and that $200 is the max. Maybe add "And so on..." or something like that, indicating that the more you give (no matter the amount) the more chances you have.

From the "Raffle Details" section it looks like there are only three donation options and that $200 is the max. Maybe add "And so on..." or something like that, indicating that the more you give (no matter the amount) the more chances you have.

Thanks.
I'm off the computer already, ask yeki to change

Read up-thread. It's probably too political to post, may cause more harm than good. Better to keep it to Jewish sites.

Because there's a difference between running the campaign and linking to the campaign.

Well you have to define what you want if you are asking for peoples approval. I think one entry into each raffle sounds fair if the item is valued over $100. But it just makes things complicated and I was told
Don't complicate things that aren't complicated.
so I guess propose your idea in detail and see what others say.

How about this: if the approximate value of the prize is >$100, then 1 entry into each raffle; $50-100, then 1 entry into the $20 and $50 raffles, etc.

As far as keeping things from getting too complicated, the G doc could simply say ">$100 Prize" under Donated and 1 under each pool. That way it won't mess up the total collected.

Just my $0.02

Can everyone who has donated already please email confirmations of your donations? I would like to confirm everyone before the raffle starts.

If so, I am sure all would agree to make reasonable adjustments if it brings in more $$$$.

You can't change the terms of the raffle after it's already begun.

You'd need everyone's consent, and you'll never get it by tomorrow at the time of the drawing.

that doesn't make the people who were excited about the possibility of winning a prize happy...or leave them with the feeling that they would want to donate next time.

Personally I think this was a great idea and the organizers have done a lot to help the DDF'er in need.
But extending the drawing date is not the correct way to do this.

Maybe have another round next week?

I will start this initiative by donating a $200 United Gift card as a prize for another round of "funding"

But for me unfortunately it isn't true. I volunteered because I thought this was a crowd sourced campaign. If it was made clear to me from the start that no one else would take care of the rest I most likely would have done nothing at all...

Also, if there is indeed a big public push, there should probably be some clause added that it's only for new donations  -unless of course we want to open the raffle to anybody who ever donated over the course of the campaign...

Well said.

Besides, when donating to a frum campaign you almost have to get people's consent Not too extend. So widespread and international is this tradition.

I think its not the end of the world to those people "waiting" for their prizes if we extend for a few days, if it brings in more money for the cause.

Maybe instead of 15 days that I originally suggested, we do 5 days. Every day for the next 5 days we raffle off 3 of the prizes.
The momentum of such a raffle with people winning daily will bring in more money.

Nov 2 prizes 4,8, and12
Nov 3 Prizes 5,9, and 13
Nov 4 prizes 6,10, and 14
Nov 5  we raffle off the grand prizes. 1,2, (and hopefully if we reach 20k 15)

so yes those who only donate once the raffle starts will have a chance at less prizes, but they will still be in on the remaining prizes

So I am "confirmed" on the google doc, but didnt get any email with push off request...
Though I don't mind!
Like others said- most Jewish raffles get pushed of at least once these days...

Your email got grouped with jj's email (you sent to both of us and he forwarded it to me), so I mistakenly only sent him. I sent an email now.

Lets hit 20K today, and no need to push off anything!!
In order for this to happen (I think), some people are going to have to donate more as there is not enough time.

I'll match you....

IMHO a person should be allowed to win one prize from each raffle category. Meaning 1 $100 prize, 1 $50 prize and 1 $20 prize.

Anyone disagree?

I love how we're making it sound like everyone signed some serious contract that cannot be altered without getting lawyers involved.

From the beginning it was an ad-hock, make-it-up-as-we-go-along situation. Heck, half the rules and prizes we'rent even around yet when many of us donated.

It had nothing to do with signing a contract. And it has nothing to do with lawyers. It's common decency.

When one begins a raffle and sets a time,  one should keep to that time. And without the participants agreeing,  I don't see how it would be appropriate to change it.

Though not completely on topic,  I came across this article which espouses similar sentiments.

Technically it's more complicated than that. There was a story from a long time ago where there was a raffle and after the winner was picked they discovered that someone who was supposed to be in it didn't have a ticket in for him (or someone had 2 by mistake?). The halachic ruling given was that since he didn't have a chance to win (or had more chances than he was supposed to?) the entire raffle is invalidated.
See here (http://www.businesshalacha.com/hotline-articles/baffling-raffle) and here (http://www.torah.org/advanced/business-halacha/5757/vol3no2.html) and unrelated but very interesing and often relevant here (http://www.torah.org/advanced/business-halacha/5757/vol3no3.html)
While I don't mind personally if it is pushed off, as I posted earlier it's pretty important to make sure everyone agrees (See here (http://www.torah.org/advanced/business-halacha/5757/vol3no3.html) - the last website from my quote. )

Just curious - and please excuse my lack of understanding - what is the incentive here? Everyone else must double their donations unconditionally but you only have to double yours if 20 others do so first? How does that deal get people to double their donations? On the contrary, I believe if you doubled your donation right away and announced that you have done so, people will be inspired to follow suit. What am I missing?

Many people gave $100 or less, while Dan gave close to $500. That means that if 20 people each double by giving another $36, $50 or $100 etc, their donation will cause a $500 donation from Dan effectively making them a causor (that's soo not a word) of an additional $25 donation per person of the 20.

I've heard of a "match" - i.e. a donor will announce that he will match donations up to a certain amount, obligating himself to donate as much money as the others do combined. So theoretically, even if only one person donates one dollar, the "match" donor will be obligated to also donate a dollar. Here, however, if 19 people double their donations today, Dan is not obligating himself to donate anything. That's all I'm pointing out.

What if 20 people agree to double their donation on condition the other 19 also double ?
I'll double my $200 if there are 20 others willing to double their donation.

I was just thinking it may make more sense to say, "if the total reaches $19500 by the end of the day, I will bring it to $20K." That way someone like me who cannot afford to double my donation, will still have an incentive to donate more money, albeit less than my original donation.

I more than doubled my initial donation recently to push us past $10K.
I don't recall it "inspiring" others to do the same to theirs.

It's called a challenge.  MEIR613 responded, IMHO you're just threadcrapping.

Fair enough.

I am suggesting tweaking the challenge so as to fire up even more people to donate more:

Not in the slightest. I, like everyone else, am just chiming in with suggestions to get people to donate more. I did inquire as to the effectiveness of your method, but only because I was trying to help. Like I said:

People see a big number like that and there's not much motivation.
Trust me, if we get up to 19.5K I don't think 20K will be an issue.

Walking up to someone and saying "you did it!" and him not responding means he's deaf or... as the gemara says: he did it.

Sending an email less than 48 hours before the auction and saying reply back or the auction is cancelled is hardly "in your face" to the same degree as, well, being in your face (as contemplated by the gemara).

The position to be in charge of the campaign was put up for grabs.

If you would have liked to accept the responsibility, and run it your way you could've.

Yuneeq was kind enough to volunteer and take charge. We should be grateful to him.

I don't know what you are complaining about.

I agree with both of you, there's just a couple reasons why not to do it tonight.

1) To give more time to confirm donations before raffle starts

2) To set up the actual raffle

The first two things may take a day or two, so it makes sense to just keep the pushed off date instead of making everyone crazy and changing it again.

I am happy to contact them and already PMed you that I spoke to one of the jewish sites.
I can also make an atempt at writing up something although im sure there are some good writers on here.
What kind of article/style shoud it be?
Should it be letting people know of a raffle titled "click here to win a trip to israel" or more of "bloggers unite to help a virtual friend"?

Somehow I think the real money in this campaign is coming form the DDF club who feel a connection to a fellow DDFer in trouble. Outside publicity may just bring more letters to 122 Vintage Circle and more gossip. The effort IMO should be focused on reaching all those who follow DD and DDF to help out a Fellow in trouble.
There are still lots of long time ddf members who have yet to donate.

Somehow I think the real money in this campaign is coming form the DDF club who feel a connection to a fellow DDFer in trouble. Outside publicity may just bring more letters to 122 Vintage Circle and more gossip. The effort IMO should be focused on reaching all those who follow DD and DDF to help out a Fellow in trouble.
There are still lots of long time ddf members who have yet to donate.
Agreed.
Can we have this topic added to all the other threads for a day ?

This part isn't my call.

Are COL/VIN/YWN cooperating ?

You could do a plug for people to join the forums as you often post from time to time, and one of the threads you mention without going into all the little details can be this one.

If your still worried about politics you can close the commenting on your post.

I don't think that Dans problem was the commenting I think it was the fact that he didn't want the main site to be involved in something political like this.

Either way I think DD well get more negative publicity if its posted on YWN\COL then if its agav on the main site. Many people have never heard of DD and they will always associate DD with this story. While those who visit DD know what DD is all about

People reading ywn\col would probably associate ddf with dd, but I fully understand why you dont want it to come from DD.

I might be biting off more then I could chew but would you do it as a paid add? we can probably find a few dnors here who would be willing to chip in for a add (maybe even at a discounted rate ;))

Amazing article Dan!

I was moved to tears when earlier today when reading the original article on the forum.

We really are a family! So true what you say, especially about the other cause you mentioned. I just donated there again and doubled my original donation, and this time it was also L"N Jewda. 

I was thinking - If I am so hurt about the loss of one DDF member, I / We really all should donate to the other campaign as much as we can.

Who knows what our dollars will do for him!

Guys - Chap Arein! "chatof viechol, chatof ushise"

Can you add up as if poeple will double as we are basically there anyway. i'm sure we will get 20 before the raffle.

A big question we have to address is people who didn't send the confirmation email, are they in pending verification if they win? Or out and tough luck?

Also how do we do if someone wins multiple prizes? They get the 1st prize they won from each level of the raffle?

Another ~$1500 if wiki is accurate.

I say if they win then they gotta verify.

btw, seems like we've hit the 20 doublers mark.  Jewda is still helping out here I see.

OK let's clarify some things guys.

I am aware that a few names have the wrong amount of tickets. I will ask bubbles to fix those.

The correct amounts donated will be verified by me before the raffle. I remember almost every donation, and the ones that I don't, I will double check my emails.

It is my mistake that I didn't recommend to lock the amounts given, but I will do my best to make sure there are no mistakes.

In regards to unverified donations, I agree that everyone will partake in the raffle. But obviously if the unverified donor wins, they will have to prove to us (we could give them a week) that they gave that amount before the raffle took place.
Therefore if any unverified donor wins, I think it'll be smart to immediately run a second "just in case" raffle.

Rots: I don't update the wiki, only the spreadsheet.

IMO He meant the past amounts, once you gave it and verified it should be locked, but anyone who donates today will only be able to get on the Doc through you or yuneeq. That will end up just making things more complicated

so if i donate $600 today at 5:00 pm and he doesn't get my email confirm in time, I will not be put into the raffle? I think the old way made more sense.
The problem was that people were changing the old amounts.

Either way if its gonna stay locked, we can delete step 2 from the wiki.

How it's not so complicated. If you donate, let me know and I will update the spreadsheet even if you don't send the confirmation right away. As I said previously, even unconfirmed donors will be entered into the raffle, but they will need to prove that they donated before the deadline (you don't have to prove before the deadline but make sure you give before then). Every online donation confirmation says the time you have donated.

I've posted this Keytrade deal by that will start soon (within a week they told me).

To be illegible, you need a non-USA passport, and non-USA address (residing there).

For everyone that tells me now that they will sign up when the promo is active, I donate $50 to the cause, and the person will receive a completely free Euro account with Euro 30 in it.

WE DID IT!!
THANKS MOISH FOR THE PUSH ABOVE 20K!

YOU CAN CONTINUE TO GIVE, THIS IS JUST A MILESTONE!

ETA: Eat your words, CV! :P
CV care to comment?
I didn't say so, but thought that it would get to $20k after 5:00...
This is amazing!!!
@ CV: you failed. We expect as compensation a generous donation, fitting to a count.
Not so fast there. My lawyers are already looking at this and are going to demand a recount. This smells of one large conspiracy against me. 

NC is in charge of the prize and my suggestion was a personalized pencil sharpener. Either way he has a budget of 20.00 so letís wait and see what he comes up with.

- The Raffle will be broadcast live at 11pm est. by BisPro (who is not participating in the raffle) on http://www.livestream.com/ddf1

- We will assign all members numbers for their raffle entries before the raffle and that document will be made available online so you know what numbers to look for. (Bubbles I believe is working on this and if anyone knows google docs please help out as it seems a bit complicated.)

- BisPro will stream the drawing using this website http://andrew.hedges.name/experiments/random/ he simply enters the amount of entries in the raffle (each number entry reflects a person) and gets the winning number.

- Prizes will be pick in order of the prizes listed in the wiki.

- There is no limit to how many prizes a person can win. (even if the same number is picked twice it still counts)

Am I missing anything? Any objections to this raffle process speak now.

Note: The livestream website has a 30 seconds ad so open the website a bit before 11pm.

- There is no limit to how many prizes a person can win. (even if the same number is picked twice it still counts)

Am I missing anything? Any objections to this raffle process speak now.

Note: The livestream website has a 30 seconds ad so open the website a bit before 11pm.

Is this gonne be like the oorah thon? Special guest hosts, stories from ppl that saved money by switching to DDF etc....

if you win a price in the $20 dollar raffle, are you eligible for the next $20 raffle with the same odds? For example, lets say I had a 5/1000 chance of winning a $20 price and I win price A, do I still have a 5/1000 chance to win price B or are my chances knocked down to 4/1000.
If the raffles for all the prizes are being done at the same time, the question is mute. I'm only wondering if the raffle is done one prize at a time.

And if you have two names in the spreadsheet but are only confirmed for one, you can only win from the confirmed one.

Nope. At 9 Yuneeq is finalizing the google doc, and then Myb will make the final sheet.

Not to be that guy, but are we sure the legal fees will even amount to 25k?
I have no idea how much these things cost. But even if, as you suggest, it can be done for less, I'm sure he can hire a better lawyer if he has more money.

don't retainers for top defense attorneys start in 6 digits? The article (http://www.collive.com/show_news.rtx?id=27332) for the raising of money said it'd be 100,000's of dollars.

Sure, attorneys can be very expensive. However there isn't any guarantee that this will eventually end up going to trial. &, if it doesn't go to trial then it's quite possible that the attorneys fees will be less than $25,000.

I guess I'm just wondering what happens with the excess money?

Mazal Tov to all the winners!!
Shkoyach to all those that helped make this happen!

JJ, bubbles, myb374861, and bispro you all took a great part in this.

Of course, we must thank the real winners, those that got together and opened their hearts and wallets to help make this auction raise an amazing $25k (or pretty darn close) for one of our own, a DDFer, a Jew, another human being in major need.

And thank you Dan, for being the glue that brought us, and brings us all together.

May we share only good news!!

Quote
Dearest DDF Family!

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and thanks for the outpouring of love which I see, I am humbled by my fellow DDF'ers who took it upon themselves to join the fundraising effort and help me in my time of need. It gladdens my heart to be part of such a family, who will go out of their way to help their fellows in need, whether it is financial or otherwise. I will be forever grateful to all of you, to those who donated the prizes, to those who donated money, and to those who made this a reality.
