WLDG Haitian Relief: see page 7 for final winners list

Postby Dale Williams » Thu Jan 14, 2010 6:21 pm

Some of you might recall after Katrina we did a raffle on the old WLDG that raised over $10K. Looking at the horror of what has happened in Haiti, Robin has approved doing this again.

OK, I just made the first donation, and I'll throw in the first prize. Here are the rules
1) Up to 100 entrants.
2) You need to make a donation of at least $30 to a charity doing work directly in Haiti. I chose http://doctorswithoutborders.org/
Other good options include:
Red Cross http://www.redcross.org
Catholic Relief Services http://www.crs.org
Care http://www.care.org/emergency/haitiearthquake/index.asp
Partners in Health http://www.pih.org

Not limited to these, but they're a start.

3) send me a PM or email (Dale@midnightrun.org, PLEASE include "Haiti" in subject line) with charity you supported, and a cut and paste of a section of donation acknowledgement ( email or webpage- DWB didn't send an immediate receipt, though edited to add it came through after about an hour). You don't need to include address, amount, etc. Just something to show you did something (I hate to think anyone would sign up without donating, but you never know).

4) If you want to donate an additional prize, post it here. Since I mostly have less expensive stuff, I'm donating a lot of 4 bottles, but a single nice bottle is a good prize.

5) We'll hope for 100 donors, and 3-8 prizes. Next Fri (1/22) the last 2 digits (after the decimal) of the DJIA as published in the NYT will the winning number. For instance, if the Dow finishes at 10713.37, whoever is 37th donor on list wins my lot of Bordeaux. If there are other prizes, they will be the Dow on the next day of business, in order (so prize #2 1/25, #3 1/26,.etc). If we don't reach 100, and no donor number coincides, prize stays with donor.
Edited Sat 1/23: As we had more prizes than we expected, and not wanting to draw out this too long (as we probably have about all the donors we're going to get), does anyone object to this? Starting monday, we go through the prizes in order (starting with #2, mine will go to back of the line) using the DJIA, S&P, and Nasdaq fractions? Even with some misses we can have everything done much sooner. I don't generally like to change rules in midgame, but this will speed up things, without changing the odds of anyone winning. OK with everyone?
6) Robin is final arbiter of disputes. Look, this is just a way to spur all of us with good intentions to do what we know we should do. Let's have a little fun and help those in tremendous need. May the best man or woman win the best wine!


Prize #1 - 4 decades of Bordeaux. Your choice of one bottle per decade:
1970 Canon, 1979 du Tertre, or 1979 Domaine de Chevalier
1983 Gruaud Larose, 1988 Bon Pasteur, or 1989 Meyney
1990 Meyney, 1995 Soutard, or 1998 du Tertre
2001 Sociando, 2001 Lagrange, or 2005 du Tertre
(none of these are super valuable, each worth $30-90, but lot is worth $150-250 depending on what you pick.)
Will ship wherever possible within continental US, if you are in a state with legal issues it's up to you to find alternate address.

I'll offer two prizes. A case of the Jollies. (Seriously folks!) A magnum of '95 Durell. I've already donated to PIH, but I'll do it again. Hope I can figure out the part described in Dale's post (Luddite Brain Disorder). :oops:

I'm in. Donated earlier today to International Rescue and the Red Cross, but after watching Sanjay Gupta treat a 15 day old baby on CNN tonight, I can't not give some to Doctors Without Borders as well. I'll give them $100 and send you that receipt, and in the morning I'll choose something from our cellar to offer as a prize, too.

Postby David M. Bueker » Fri Jan 15, 2010 1:55 pm

Dale,

Might I suggest that we wait until 1/29 to close this out & determine the prizes. A little additional time can't hurt & can only help.

I agree, and when you get more than 10 prizes coming in, you can start to combine them and make them bigger!

Good news: the company I work for is doing a dollar for dollar match to Red Cross donations (but sadly not others), so I just put in another $50 which they will match.
