Wool-Aid Spring Lottery (March 1-31, 2013)

Socks! Fund-raising! Fun! Let’s raise $$$ for our Wool-Aid shipping fund and have some fun at the same time! Who wants a pair of handknit socks created by one of our generous and tremendously talented Wool-Aid members on Ravelry?

Here are the rules:

1 :: The Wool-Aid Spring Lottery runs from March 1 through March 31.

2 :: The winner will receive the pair of handknit socks pictured and described below.

3 :: For every $5 you donate through this fund-raiser, you will be granted a “ticket” in the Wool-Aid Spring Lottery.

4 :: If using PayPal, follow these instructions:

  • Click on “Send Money”.
  • Use the e-mail address “”.
  • Enter the total $$$ amount for your entry/entries.
  • Choose the “Personal” tab (instead of the default “Purchase” tab).
  • Click “Continue” to finalize the transaction.
  • Enter “ME PLEASE” in the notes area, and include either your Ravelry name or your first initial/last name.

5 :: If you prefer to enter by sending a check to Wool-Aid, please write “ME PLEASE” on the memo line.

6 :: For every $5 donated to this fund-raiser, post in the Spring Lottery thread in the Ravelry Wool-Aid group with the words “ME PLEASE”. The post number will be your lottery ticket number. (Example: If you donate $20 to this fund-raiser, post “ME PLEASE” in 4 separate posts, so you’ll have 4 separate lottery ticket numbers, one for each $5 donation.) If you are not on Ravelry, your first initial/last name will be posted for you to create lottery ticket numbers.

7 :: After the Wool-Aid Spring Lottery closes on March 31, the lottery ticket numbers will be run through a Random Number Generator to pick a winner. The winner will be announced in the Spring Lottery thread and in a Wool-Aid News & Updates e-mail.

Here’s the lovely prize:


The socks are Cherry Tree Hill fingerpaints, superwash wool, colorway Mountain Moss. Foot length heel to toe = 9”.

Have fun, and good luck!
