Can the next fund raiser be a raffle?

I am curious what the laws are in Michaels state or in the state that the DP web hosting comes from concerning raffles?

Could someone help do some background on this? I have many antiques and home made blacksmith items that I would donate.

The Idea would be is to send the item to Michael so that he can verify that it is hand,Then pick the winner from ticket buyers by user number from their contribution.

Anyone that offers an item must submit pictures and details of the item.

It will all come down to the legalities of doing this for Mr.Nystrom and the DP,Or the carrier of the website AKA Mark.

Not an auction but a Raffle.

I think it would be a great way to raise funds for the cause selected at the time?

As a teaser I make swords and knives that are collectors items.

I don't understand why items would have to be sent to Michael

    why not just from previous owner to purchaser?

    Jon it would have to be in the hands of someone

    That is is of knowledge of fact that can be trusted by all.Just like the new server.

    If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

    nah

    take pics or make a video of it, demonstrate if applicable, so everyone can see it. Make content participants sign digital agreements of validity and willingness to send.

    It's much more efficient if it's from A to C instead of A-B-C.

    Jon you are of too much trust

    In our family,I have a sinking feeling that it would have to physically in the hands of a REAL person.

    then require "collateral"

    Signing up to raffle your thing off requires $X00 for submission which is returned in full upon receipt by winner.

    Or if fractions of raffle $ go to thing providers, it's only sent once the object is received.

    *shrugs*

    Jon,what you say is not trust

    Good idea but I remember someone bitching about the "Bus" girl from 08,This has me to think it has to be in good hands without putting up a retainer of cash.

    I think donations of things

    I think donations of things we make, or have would be really wonderful. If we all contributed something then maybe there would be lots of winners and the prizes would even exceed their donations, in value..of course, the easiest way would just be for Michael to number the packages as they came in and not even open them. Then just slap a mailing label and postage when someone won something.

    Crickett,You know of course this would not work!

    The question would be what is he in possession of?It would have to be up front and straight forward.With a referee.

    Oh come on..u really think

    Oh come on..u really think someone would send drugs as a raffle prize? I do not think he would have to know what the prizes are..just who won them. Pull a ticket, send the box. Nothing not up front about that..lol. Either way, there would have to be a label on the box with a return shipping address and I just trust us. Many it seems, do not. So I guess this is not a good idea, especially for work for Michael..

    Have you been keeping up on current posts?

    I would not put a thing past this crew,Serious!Love you,just need to look out for Mr Nystrom.I would feel terrible if this suggestion caused him personal harm.

    ROFL! You may be right. I am

    ROFL! You may be right. I am still too naive, I guess. I just do not see any of us undermining the DP..but I have been very wrong many times when the trust issue comes up. I see too much good in everyone..

    Crickett,Thank you for your patience

    I just had to go dump my coach down the road about five miles,Done now.

    Sorry Crickett

    I just had visions of boxes of controlled substances in Michael's living room.
