Can it be a raffle with a limit on how many tickets you can buy?

I don't think that's a good idea because I for one can't buy any tickets and I'm sure the younger kids that enter on here would not be able to buy their tickets. One can't even have PayPal so I think that wouldn't be such a good idea.

This would defeat the whole purpose of "WIN" a Thailand betta all expenses paid.

Yeah, I can't buy one so it is kind of stupid to buy tickets

I dont think that a raffle, with a buy in, is what this contest was originally envisioned to be. Rather, it was created so that everyone could enter and have a fair shot at getting a Thailand Betta. The donations are just that - donations. No one is obligated to give if they do not want to. And giving donations does not mean you get a better shot at winning, but a donation would mean that this contest would continue on, and on, and on, and on....

Basically you just were to PM Kaden and say "I would like to ender the contest" and she'd take your name down on another website and it tells everyone who entered if your entry is there.

Then at the end of the contest, all you have to do is wait. Kaden writes everyone's name on a little piece of paper and shuffles the bag. Then she goes on a video chat on a free video chatting site and pulls a random paper out. Whoever wins gets a free Thai betta

The catch is it has to be a BIN(Buy It Now) price of $25 maximum. Also you don't HAVE to choose from outside of the States.

Well it would be hard to keep the contest going if it only ran on donations. And it would be winning if say you bought a single raffle ticket for $1 and got an all expenses paid Betta.

But if some people cannot buy a ticket, perhaps enough tickets would be sold to hold a paid raffle contest and then a second for free with extra money from the paid contest.

I'm just throwing ideas out there so that the contest doesn't just rely on a few people's generosity.

We want everyone to have a chance. IF we do it that was then its like the people who paid got "special treatment". There are enough people on here that would be more than willing just to give 5 bucks to something good (if they don't win). It's like playing a claw machine where all the proceeds go to something good.
