Yeah, I changed it so the other person's name was hidden.  My life is pretty much an open book.

Thanks for posting the picture.  Once again, I am sorry that Amazon damaged the box.  I shipped two boxes (DC & Marvel and Amusement Park sets) out this morning.  One to Washington D.C. and another to Texas.  I will ship the rest of the prizes early next week a few each day.

The British Invasion and Spooky Spectacular prizes shipped out today.   Two more tomorrow and the final two on Wednesday.  I still have not heard from the Amazon Gift card winner.

Then raffle it off again(to raise more money for the school) or if rallyup lets you pick another ticket winner from the people who bought raffle tickets for it. Oh and what was the "bonus" set for the British invasion. I bought tickets for it and just wanted to know. I know you won the big ben and the tower bridge, I just assumed the bonus set was london bus but I wasn't sure.

The bonus set for the British Invasion raffle is the 21034 Architecture London Skyline Collection.  Thanks Ed!  I am one surprised winner.  :)  The real winner of this raffle is St. Paul School.

I have to ask Rallyup.com what the policy is.  I emailed twice.  Rallyup.com also emailed and I wrote a letter and mailed it to the address given to me.  It was a few bonus sets actually.  I gave everyone a bonus set I believe.  Two more shipped out today...Modular Madness to CA and STAR WARS Sidekicks.  What is madness is shipping cost to CA.

hmmmmm, I see. Well can you just raffle it off again? You could raise more money that way!

That's one idea.  I wrote the letter last week and I am in NJ and the winner is in CA.  I will give it some time.  I will write to Rallyup.com today and see what happens if no one comes forward to claim a prize.  I hope nothing happened to the winner.

They passed out cuz they only bought one ticket and the odds of them winning were so low. When they got the winning email they had a heart attack. Honestly they are probably on vacation IMO.

They actually bought quite a few tickets, so I will give them a chance.

Packaging truly worthy of the Thread of Packaging Excellence!  The British Invasion sets arrived in mint condition today.  :) The bonus set for the British Invasion 21034 Architecture London Skyline Collection is arriving separately.

Remember, I was one number off from the winning ticket. I think that qualifies me as next in line!

Rallyup.com told me to give the winners a few weeks to respond then we can discuss what's next in case nobody does.

I’m just giving you a hard time. It’s crazy that they haven’t responded yet. Like you mentioned, hopefully nothing has happened to them. I’m just happy to have contributed to the cause.

I know.  LOL.  Very strange.  I sent a letter to the address as well.  They donated close to $100.00, so they definitely wanted to win.  At the moment, I will just let it be.  The $1000.00 Amazon gift card(s) was supplied from the school directly from their gift card "script" account that they use to raise a few bucks each year.  If they don't claim it, it will be like donating back to the school directly.

you need to know the terms of the raffle

some raffles specify that they have a time limit that you must claim a prize within a certain amount of days

if this raffle did not specify a time limit to claim the prize i wonder if there some sort of default law

if not you probably have to hold on to it in case he contacts you months out,however a letter might get results  its quite possible that some email accounts are not actively monitored and this person just does not monitor this specific email account

Yes, I will let it be for now.  We have notified him multiple ways and will wait for him in case there is some sort of personal issues.  I did not specify a time limit to claim prizes because I never really thought it would or could be an issue.  If I re-raffle this off, it could end up being more trouble than it's worth.  I just wanted to be honest with everyone and tell them the situation.
