Default Can You do this atleast!(Polling)

If you feel IV is our only hope/interpreter, then lets fuel it.
We all know IV needs funds to operate and to drive our concerns.
I propose $100K raffle every month, result will be announced on the VB day, if VB brings bad news atleast our raffle may get a good one!
each ticket may be sold for $10 ,
$10 x 20,000 tickets = 200k
100k for IV , 100k can be split to top 10 winners.

Please take your poll above.

Good question,
What are the raffle laws of each state? | rafflefaq.com talks about the regulations, I am not sure which state to look for.

I feel paid and verified membership is much better. That way we can raise the money and we won't have trash talkers between us and we will know everyone by name......a team rather than an online platform. Just a thought.

I'm sure it is legal.. It is just a form of kitty. We are not using the money for any gambling etc..

I like the idea and I'm in..

There are less than 1000 replies in the I-485 voting thread and no money is required...how do you plan to sell 20K tickets to only a few "active" members?

Thats the key thing here, a fund drive/ monthly contribution will attract the seasonal participants, but a raffle will attract ALL ( the one who have graduated from IV ).
this way a constant fund raising process can be established.
thats my thinking, please pardon my ignorance if any!

I agree with you. On that thread people are complaining that they should not have to register to vote. How do you expect them to spend time taking out their credit card, entering the 16 digits using keyboard and hit the submit button really hard.

You are asking Desis to give $10. Forget it. They would spend $10 on Mango Lassi for themselves.

I bet that attitude changes when it comes to raffle !
besides, its 1:2000 chance ( want to make it 1:100 , its upto the model ) , i guess its far better than those lottery tickets sold.

Default 50% of collection can be distributed as prize money

This is a great idea. I would suggest that rather than saying we will collect $200K every month and distribute $100K as prize money. We can just distribute 50% total collection as prize money.

Is there a way to find all "active" members? If we're in the range 5000, then 10 per month for every user is good.

I saw many ppl in August who came in and posted that they got GC, not sure how many of them used IV and donated.

Yes, that works even better when the tickets sold is + or - to the target mark.
