I also really like DQ's Idea! It's kinda like two different contests in one.

Though another idea would to have the left over money go for another contest.

The results are in!

I like the idea of carrying the extra money over to the next contest.

I agree because a lot of people can't get to a Petco, Petsmart or are miles far from it.

The results are in!

I think setting a max limit on donations is a good idea, but also not to set the amount, as I'm sure there are tons who would want to donate 1 dollar... We shouldnt turn them away because those add up. I also like the idea of the left over money carrying over to the next drawing. If we have enough interest, this thing has the potential of just paying for itself. If I wasnt already sponsoring a contest I would donate a tank, but will definitely chip in the 5bucks. :)

Kaden, how much did you end up spending total on the first raffle, if you dont mind me asking?

Now if there was only a way to collect and track all the donations in real time...

How about setting up a poll asking how much people would be willing/able to donate and what any extra money should go for.

I was thinking about it some more and think we should remove any caps or make it bigger. I'm sure we have some well to do members here who may be willing to donate big... And I wouldnt want to stand in their way. :) If we did have to set donation tiers, how would $1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50 sound? This way there's a donation amount for everyone.

The cost of the fish was either $20, or $25. Plus the cost of the Thailand shipping, $5. The cost of express shipping from Linda was right around $40. So, $65-$70 total.
