    After last years raffle/fundraiser.
    https://www.refugeforums.com/threads/it-is-that-time.1065631/#post-11528475

    I was asked if I was going to do another this year?
    So I believe I Will.

    Here is the information.
    DO NOT send me any money.

    I ask, that you make a donation to YOUR LOCAL abuse shelter.
    Please make a donation to provide Christmas for the kids.

    There is no need/requirement to state what you gave.
    Once you make a donation, simply post in this thread, DONE.
    Again, donation to the LOCAL shelter in YOUR AREA.

    @Mort has again donated one of his custom calls.

    I will try to come up with some others, even if I have to buy it.
    If you have something you would like to donate as a raffle prize, that would be great!

    I will do the drawing, the same as last year.
    All names go in a hat, and names will be drawn for amount of Prizes I have, on Christmas Eve.
    I will post the results immediately after the drawing.
    Prizes will be shipped from me after Christmas. If more prizes are donated, I will coordinate with whoever for shipment.
    If you are drawn, please IM me your shipping info.

    I know many of you have your choice of charities you give to. I ask that maybe you give just a little more to this.

    You will probably never see the joy it brings to a kid while they are in the shelter, or the look of hope and relief on the face of the mother.

    By giving early, it helps prevent the last minute scramble to ensure every kid has a present.
    If you are able to give more, maybe ask if you could help sponsor a meal at the shelter.

    For those unfamiliar on how to go about this. You will not be allowed to go to the shelter ( they are usually in undisclosed locations for the protection of the residents).
    Most Law Enforcement Dept’s have a designated officer/representative for contact with the shelter. That officer may be who you meet with for delivery of gifts.

    Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, great days in your blind, magic shells that fly true and THANKS!

    Again, make donation to YOUR LOCAL abuse shelter.

    With Holeinthesky permission I will be adding an Elk Antler Bottle Opener, similar to the one pictured. Hoping this helps the cause. Elk Opener.jpg

    I have a commit for 2 more calls being donated.
    I will hold off on posting them until they are in my possession.
    Once they are, I will post them up.

    Would love for this to really intensify.
    Please make it happen and post Done.

    Trying to get some other incentives…….

    so far…..

    Done. The wife and I do something like this every year instead of exchanging gifts. We buy what we want throughout the year (within reason) and try to help others less fortunate during the season of giving.
