Why would it drive them away?

Not going to drive anyone away. If you see a thread title that you don't like, don't open it!

It's not like anyone is banging on your door.

Look at it the opposite way, Are you happy when Tzedakas spend thousands of dollars on full page ads, fancy dinners and awards? I am quite happy that people here are giving each other the opportunity to give true undiluted Tzedaka

When it comes to tzedaka, people tend attack the collector/appeal so they don't feel they have an obligation to give.

If by the end of Sunday the jackpot has not increased, I will refund everyone who donated and close the thread. Thanks to all the members that donated so far.

Good shabbos to all.

I believe the people who donated didn't do it for the raffle, rather out of a sincere desire to help.

No need to return anything, refuah shleima.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Before my dollars, here's my two cents!
Some comments I'm seeing here surprise me. I'll leave it at that.
If I did the math right, for donations of 180 you're planning on giving back 100! Wow. You don't even get that in Chinese auctions! You end up with a mere 80! I would like to ask for permission to do the following. I would like to donate as well, but I would prefer my donation does not go into the cheshbon for the "raffle". Please let me know if anyone objects. Also, in order to donate, please explain how I can use one of the two methods mentioned above, since I don't know the mechanics of using those methods. Or give me an easier one and I'll send it right in.
If anyone objects to my leaving it out of the cheshbon, I guess that's too bad for me. I'll donate anyway, but if my name is pulled, please pull again for someone else.
Thanks.

Yup, he will be as the OP Stated "if there are not any more donations by Sunday Night..."

I just donated.

Refuah Shelema!


Guys If a shnoorer came to your door won't you give him $5-$20?

Why is this any different?

If you can't afford a ticket, just sending the OP $5 would help.
