|Yarn & Goodies MDA Raffle

Apologies to those of you who are seeing this multiple times!
Team Knitsburgh (consisting of myself, bethb, and adelheid_p) is holding an amazing raffle full of yarny goodness, books, patterns, and more!
All money raised goes to the Muscular Dystrophy Association to fund research. Research costs $87 per minute, and as a team we’d like to raise enough money for 10 minutes' worth. That's $870, so we really need your help! To learn more about Muscular Dystrophy, and how research is changing the lives of children and adults, visit the MDA’s website.
Here’s how the raffle works. For every three dollars you donate, you get one chance in the raffle. If you donate $15, you get 6 chances (1 free!). So, if you donate $21, you get 8 chances. If you’re feeling generous, and you donate $30, you get 12 tickets (2 free!). Get the idea? Once you’ve donated, PM me here or on Ravelry (my user name there is "owlsnest") with your real name and address, how much you’ve donated, and which item or items you’d like a chance to win. If you don’t specify an item, I get to choose the item for you. If you have any questions, post them below or PM me and I'll answer them.
The raffle runs through 2/16/11. To donate, click the 'Donate Now' button on my secure fund-raising page. One last thing before you start looking -- none of us has a lot of extra cash (if we did, we'd be donating it to MDA!), so if you win, we'll be asking you to pay the postage. Items will be sent Priority Mail in the US, and whichever way is safest and still cost-effective for overseas.
