MiV Raffle Draw Wednesday 25 July 2012

This blog post contributed by Rebecca, from the MiV Volunteer Events Committee

Tomorrow is the drawing for the raffle! It is with pleasure that I announce that so far, we have had some success selling tickets (our way to raise funds for MiV)…. but I know there are many of you who would like to support the organization that supports you so NOW IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY! There are a few announcements regarding the raffle:

  1. We have added an AWESOME fourth prize! I saw one of these on a friend of mine’s FB page not long ago and it.looked.awesome! Presented and donated by www.auntie-jos.com we are pleased to add a Swim Fin and a Swim Fin bag as the fourth raffle prize! If you don’t know about this product already….you have to take a look! It is going to change the way that we teach our little ones to swim!
  2. I have had a few questions about where the money is going. Here’s the deal: hosting a website is expensive. Maybe in your home country it costs very little…but here in Switzerland, and especially with an extensive message board and data base it is several hundred francs a year. Currently that is being paid for out of pocket by the founder of the site and it would be awfully kind of us to help her out with that.  Additionally, we are adding more and more events. These events often have a bit of a charge to rent space, secure a bar, a few bottles of wine to umm….’get the party started’ and munchies too! Currently these costs are being absorbed by the volunteers and hostesses who plan the events. Wouldn’t be awfully nice of us to help with some of those costs? We aren’t looking to make thousands of francs! Just enough to cover the costs of the site and a few odds and ends here and there. Normally, these things would be considered administrative costs covered by membership fees – which MiV doesn’t have so we asking each of you to pitch in and do you part!
  3. Finally….we have a few negative nellies out there who ‘don’t want the prizes’ Really? You don’t want hundreds of francs worth of free stuff?  Well….that’s just crazy talk. We tailored these baskets to have a little something for everybody. Maybe you don’t have direct use for each item in each basket…. but surely you can stash something away for a birthday or holiday present for someone else?  It’s really about supporting and fundraising for the MiV network anyway. The prizes are a super bonus!
If you want to get your hands on a ticket, contact Rebecca or Chelsea, buy a ticket on paypal using the “Buy Now” function (on the right >> only available until noon Wednesday, 25 July 2012) and we will get you taken care of!
Have a super day!
