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.

- 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.

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

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

This is what the raffle number assignment will look like once the google doc is gone through and verified.
