Hey you! YES YOU! Are you a burgeoning fiber artist trying to get your product out there? What about an established designer that just loves charity? A large famous LYS wanting to get in touch with the online community? Maybe a brand new online store hoping for some free publicity?
Whoever you are – WE WANT YOU!
Summoning my considerable chutzpah, I’m soliciting prizes for SPIN OUT 2007. Last year we gave away 25 prize packages, including a Majacraft Spinning Wheel as our GRAND PRIZE! When I put together the prize packages, I tried to put a little bit of everything into the package – so if an individual vendor gave me a bunch of stuff, I split it up among the prizes so as to maximize exposure.
We raised just shy of $19,000 last year, and had over 300 participants in the raffle. Raffle “chances” are $10.00 per entry, and participants can enter as many times as they like.
The charity we raise money for is Heifer International, an organization dedicated to helping people help themselves.
This year’s PHYSICAL event will take place on Saturday, September 29, 2007 in New York City’s Central Park. The Heifer Registry (how we collect money for the raffle) will open on August 15, 2007 and stay open until October 15, 2007. Prizes will be awarded the following week.
All vendors donating will have their business name and online link posted on JANUARYONE.COM (which gets, on average, 2000 unique visitors a day) and SPIN-OUT.ORG for at least 60 days.
Prize donations will be accepted until September 30. All prizes should be sent to me so I can group them together, unless otherwise specified. If you would like to donate, or have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
