Fund raisers for the cats
I hope that no one will feel that I am spamming here.  I will friends lock this post if I get a lot of complaint.

Two fundraising things have just become available, both things that might be of interest to people and do generate money for good causes.

First, FCF is holding a raffle for a trip for two to Zulu Nyala Game Park in South Africa, including air fare, 6 nights accomodations, all meals, and two guided game-viewing tours each day.  The value of the prize is about $7000.  Tickets are $10; you can get them from me, or you can get them on line, follow the link.  In the interest of full disclosure, for every 10 tickets I sell I get one free one for myself, and the FCF member who sells the most tickets gets free membership and hotel room at next year's FCF convention in Cincinnati.  So I theoretically have an interest, but I'm definitely not doing it for the inducements.

Second, the 2006 EFRC calendar is available.  If you're someone I will actually see in person, I can get one for you and you won't have to worry about (or pay for) having it mailed to you.  The calendar is $15, all of which goes to helping the cats, and you get a calendar with gorgeous pictures, one of which is by yours truly.

If you're interested in either of these, get in touch with me.  (email should reach me at tigertoy at livejournal dot com.)  Tickets are available for the raffle until Feb. 1.  The calendar is a traditional one that covers January through December.

I don't think it counts as spam if you do it in your own blog.

I definitely want a calender.

Shall I bring you $15 to OVFF or would you rather have me mail you a money order so you don't have to lay out any cash?

It won't be a problem for me to have a calendar you can pay me for at OVFF. The only problem would be that I could forget to actually bring them, so you might remind me in a couple of weeks to physically get the calendars and/or just before I would be leaving to actually pack them.

You mailing me a money order and me cashing the money order is way more hassle for both of us than you just handing me cash since we know we'll be in the same place.

I really hate spam, so I want to be somewhat deferential to other people's idea of what constitutes spam.

I'll have calendars at OVFF, barring a severe attack of cerebral flatulence.

Spam = inflicted upon others in _their_ space....this is YOUR space :) Do what you will, and those that don't like it can look at their own place :)

Calendars at OVFF is great for filkers - but will you also have them at Windy? :) If so, pack one for me....otherwise i'll do it the long way :)

How long will the raffle tickets be available?
