introducing Tinny

UPDATE~ sept. 30, wed. .

this weekend we will pick the winner of Tinny. should anyone else want to enter just leave your name in the comment section. we have 9 entries so far. this started out as a raffle however has been changed to a non-raffle, so your name is all we need.

for the 9 entries prior 'change to non-raffle' ,
no frets for you will origianlly get your name(s) entered per as as many times as was previously discussed.we will announce the winner next week.
if you are interested to donate for the original cause, of course you still can at our 2nd blog. it is completely optional and is a seperate entity on its own.

----------------------------------------------------------
original post~
all you need to do to try and win tinny is leave me your name in the comment section: it is free! (those who left their info. before the 'change' to non-raffle are in the free drawing of course and as originally discussed your names will all go into the drawing X number previously discussed). as raffles are not allowed we had to change the project, as it is now a free entry.
we present TinKitty, aka Tinny. he(or she) is as close to new as is possible for he only sat on our shelf overlooking his palace and protecting us from flying bugs. he stands around 12 in. tall and add another 8 for the tail
us four gatos are raffling off our homemade, handcrafted kittycat. he(or she) is made of durable tin colorings of white, gray, cream and black.
whiskers, eyes, mouth and kitty nose are crafted with fine metal. with pink ears to boot!

summary: to play: we are hoping for people to participate so we will keep the non-raffle going until the end of the month. to enter, just leave your name in the comment section and we will add your name to the hat draw. at that time we will put all entries names into a hat and one of our kittys will pick the winner (which we will video and post) . the winner receives Tinny and a link to your site. for those who don't win we would like to say thanks for donating by listing your blogs here linking your sites to help increase your traffic.
the winner will be contacted via thier blog with request for your mailing address so tinKitty can find his new home. Thanks to you all who care to play and find our Tinny as cute as we do. He will be missed.
Good luck.

of course we'd like everyone to win, but there is only one Tinny. so unless tinny finds a mate and (you know) there is just one prize winner. but the donations are so appreciated. you are very kind hearted.

We can't donate but we did post your graphic on our sidebar. We are hopeful!

I really hate to be a party pooper but what you are doing is illegal unless you are a regulated charity and have made application to your state for a license to conduct a raffle. Also, PayPal does NOT allow use of its payment system for raffles. You can sell or auction off your items, but raffles are illegal unless licensed by each state.

I bought some tickets...happy to be able to help in some small way.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

To update on the legality of raffle--it's not that raffles are illegal--that would depend upon the state you are in (some are legal some aren't). However, they are against the terms paypal sets forth on their terms of service page.

Good luck! We think Tinny is very cute!
