A big point here, is finding a charity that appeals to all sects of Judaism. We need to figure out where we can give this cash to, that most of the people who are interested in this raffle, would want to give $ to.
Why do we have to make it confusing. We can leave out the charity and make a simple raffle that covers the exact cost of the trip?

Another point: Assuming Dan (would be advertising this) is ok with it, we can definitely find a sponsor for a second prize or 3rd prize especially if we will put their business name on the raffle announcement.

Because many seem to be more willing to enter based on the fact that a percentage will be going to charity. With the amount of tickets we need to sell, having it all go solely to pay for someones cruise, may deter those less interested. Also, if we don't sell out, it would be a mess returning all the money.

What is the best platform to run this from? Obviously entries need to be made online, but are there sites that you can pay to create a raffle? Something like Charidy?

I don't really get that. My $100 or $180 or whatever is going towards the cruise regardless, tacking on extra money for a tzedakah isn't changing that.

Not necessarily. The first $xx,xxx raised is going towards the cruise. Let's say it's sells like crazy, and we raise $100k, the leftovers would all go to tzedaka

Not so difficult. nobody pays unless we have enough ppl signed up in the wiki. We should accept a few more then needed if ppl don't follow thru.

I hear.
I guess I just assumed the idea was to do something smaller i.e. higher odds

This wouldn't be DDF exclusive, as we would most likely never fill our min. Also, how would they go about paying?

Agreed, but selling tickets would be much harder, and they'd cost more possibly.

Why do we have 100+ posts already without an actual raffle running?

I think what makes most sense is
  • $100 per entry
  • money goes to any known org like oorah, hasc, any tomchai shabbos,
  • prize antarctica cruise for 2 or $18000 cash
I'll be the 1st to buy

Scratch any organization that runs their own large successful campaign, like oorah and hasc, that'll cut down buyers.

but a small organization will not have the popularity.   maybe this can help someone get married or something like that. if it seems like @Dan is making the raffle then people will trust a cause he stands behind

I think some of the organizations that advertise raffles on DDMS use Raise.it by Duvy's Media. I have no idea how much they charge but it looks like they host the whole thing on their website so no need to set up a new one. Here are a few from recent DDMS ads:

IMHO The point of giving such a big prize is that people shouldn’t look so much on which organizations they’re giving too And the rather concentrate on the big prize they might get, the fact that there is a charity behind it just takes away the guilt in case you don’t win.

Also I'm sure the tax receipt doesn't hurt.
