Focal Clear Raffle for Dex's GoFundMe

When donating, please do not mention the word raffle. It seems this can get flagged by PayPal and can cause the pool to be refunded completely.

As some of you know, @DEXCOM7’s family has been going some difficult medical struggles and have launched a GoFundMe which you can find here https://gf.me/u/zbhj4f

Our community members are very important to us and are like a family. I know a lot of you have found this community, bonded through it, and formed friendships that can last a lifetime.

That is why we’ve decided to organize a raffle to help with the GoFundMe. We will be giving away a Focal Clear as part of the raffle. The giveaway is worldwide so everyone can participate. Entry details below!

  1. Raffle tickets are $10 each for entry. No limit on tickets and each ticket will count as 1 entry.
  2. Raffle will end on December 11th. At that time everything raised will go into the GoFundMe and the random raffle winner will be announced.
  3. We will post daily updates at the end of they day on how much has been raised.
  4. We’ve created a PayPal money pool to enter, you cand find that here Paypal Link has been removed as the Money Pool is now closed

Please feel free to share this across your social media, discord groups etc… as the raffle isn’t limited to forum members and any little bit is going to a great cause.

Forgot to add this in but if you donate anonymously but would still like to be entered in the Raffle, just send me a message with a screenshot and I’ll get you added to the list.

The Paypal seems to be set up for Canadian Dollars. So I’m assuming the tickets are 10 CAD?

Yup that’s correct. We couldn’t set up the Money Pool with our US account as PayPal does not allow business accounts to do MoneyPools and in the interest of transparency we did not want to do F&F. So it’s on a personal CAD account.

Also, fyi I dont know if PayPal allows raffles as on Facebook people always call them waffles to throw off paypal but just to play it safe you might want to add telling people NOT to state RAFFLE in the description when sending money or in the pool header. I have heard of paypal reurning all the money in the past as it violates their gambling rules

And to everyone else, $600 raised already in just a couple hours! It’s amazing seeing the community come together!

It’s an early evening today for me so the count as of now is $830. Lots of days to go but I can’t thank this community enough for showing their support. It’s truly moving to see all of you band together for a member of the community.

@BuffaloWing, if you check the first post by @taronlissimore, there is a PayPal link shown on point 4. I believe this is what you are looking for?
