XMAS Tree with $1000 worth of lottery TIX Fundraiser 4 Our Troops

Today, we have read about an awesome and original fundraising idea.

We hope that sharing it with our visitors would give inspiration to those looking for unique fundraising ideas and those who can can actually participate and chip in to the original fundraiser to support our heroes.

CLIFTON?PARK — A unique fund raiser for mailing packages to U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East may make someone a big winner come December.

Two upstate non-profits that send the “care” packages have combined on an unusual way to pay their mailing costs. The directors of Operation Adopt a Soldier and Books for Troops are requesting donations of unopened scratch-off lottery tickets. The tickets may be in any denomination.

Once the groups have collected tickets totaling $1,000, they will be used to decorate an artificial Christmas tree. A raffle will be held for the tree with all its unusual decorations. The tickets, which are going on sale soon at $10 each, will give some lucky winner a chance at a very merry holiday.

The idea for the unusual fundraiser came from Clifton Park resident Ellen Keegan, the founder of Books for Troops. “We started sending paperback books to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of Operation Adopt a Soldier,” Keegan said.

Scratch-off tickets may be sent to Books for Troops, 192 Oak Brook Commons, Clifton Park, NY 12065-2677.

The drawing for the Christmas tree will take place at 2 p.m. Dec. 12, at the Operation Adopt a Soldier and Books for Troops Family Christmas party at the Saratoga Springs PBA Range, 54 Weibel Ave., Saratoga Springs. Winners need not be present.
