Raffle for the Food Bank for NYC

This year's raffle to support the Food Bank of New York City is ready. A gorgeous collection filled with beautiful goods with a net worth of over US$900 have been donated by different artosts and designers from NYC and Byond. There are also a few surprise designers & artists gifts (who doesn't like surprises?) to add as well to be announced as the month goes on. Stay tuned to see!

Entering is easy:
1. Hit the donate button there at the top right (or in this post!). A ticket costs only USD $10.00** and you can enter for as many tickets as you want.

2. Then just send us a quick line with your vital info to: deb at bonbonoiseau dot com:

and we'll create a ticket(s) for you and put it safe and sound in our special raffle box.

Any donation of $100 or more will get one free entry! $200 or more will get two free, $300 will get 3 free tickets etc.! We'll do our drawing December 24th, Christmas Eve surrounded by all our friends and family in a live action video!~

***We're only taking U.S. entries at this time but if you live overseas and don't mind paying for shipping (about USD$75), by all means enter! We'd like to give as much as we can to the food bank and not the P.O.!

In 2008 we raised $1400 for the Food Bank of New York City which was tripled by the Robin Hood Foundation for a total of $4200! Let's do it again...
"Approximately 1.4 million New Yorkers — the majority of whom are women, children, seniors, the working poor and people with disabilities — rely on soup kitchens and food pantries. With the goal of ending food poverty throughout the five boroughs, the Food Bank For New York City provides a series of income support, nutrition and health education programs in addition to food distribution efforts that last year provided more than 74 million pounds of food to approximately 1,000 food assistance programs every year. Without the help of our partners and supporters like you, the work of the Food Bank would not be possible."
