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.

Thanks again!



What's this all about?
If you've been following this thread 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. Several generous DDF'ers have donated prizes to be raffled off to bring attention to the defense fund created on his behalf.

Do we have a list of the tsadikkim that offered to double?

(How about to triple if we make it to 30?)

OK let's clarify some things guys.

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.

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

Not at all. Untill now he had to confirm the donation in the doc. Now he will just input it.

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.
Boy this raffle is complicated :-\

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.
