We will count every $30 donated to the above as ONE ENTRY into the raffle. Winner will be selected at random and be given their pick of several menus privately as that is not the focus here.
We urge everyone to not only donate but to take the time to visit the websites of the organizations to further personal education about systemic racism and to find out what actions we can take to assist in ENDING IT. Some, like the ACLU page, even include direct links to petitions and other actions we can take RIGHT NOW.
A reminder that in one month on July 7th, the BLM movement is calling for a NATIONWIDE ECONOMIC BLACKOUT on ALL SPENDING to peaceably demonstrate the power of the black community and their supporters. If a dollar must be spent, please take care to spend it towards a black-owned business. We will close the raffle on that date.
Thank you in advance for donating and educating yourselves with us. We must because BLACK LIVES MATTER.
