Spina Bifida Raffle

As most of you know my 1st born son, Jacob, was born with Spina Bifida.  I won't go into much detail since you can find out more about our joys and tribulations of living with the challenges of Spina Bifida here

An organization called the Spina bifida and hydrocephalus association of Ontario has been an invaluable help to us on so many occasions that I take part in their annual Spirit Wheel Walk Run event each year.  The work I do for the event will hopefully help pay them back for all the assistance they have provided to our family and other families just like us.  Please give generously and just remember even $5 can help make a difference.

To thank people for donating to my annual Spirit Wheel Walk Run event I am hosting a raffle.  For EVERY $5 you donate to the cause you can choose a chance to get one of the items listed in the form

I also want to thank all the generous author's, blogger's, publishers and companies that donated to this wonderful event.  We couldn't have done this without you!

US and Canada (Sorry International unless you want to pay for shipping) only (unless otherwise mentioned.)

Raffle Ends June 20th, 2011

Online Payment

You can make your donations in person, or on the following SITE.  Choose Donate NOW
and under Fund Designation choose 2011 SWWR: Jakes Journey (Rayment Family) THEY ACCEPT PAYPAL TOO! If you don't feel comfortable doing this please contact me at jrayment AT rogers DOT com and I will make other arrangements with you

Please fill out the following form AFTER you have made the donation. This raffle is separate from the donation form so just make the donation and than come back here.  Canada Helps has nothing to do with the actual raffle.  Also since I am not tech savy and could not figure out how to do multiple entries for one prize -  if you donate over $5 and want all your raffle tickets to go to one prize only, put it in the comment box at the end of the form.  (Form is at end of post)
