: Sensitive Klegg Model Raffle for Magic Breakfast
: shaolin_monkey 22 October, 2020, 01:23:29 AM
By now you will no doubt have seen the awful response from the UK government regarding feeding millions of our vulnerable children over Xmas.
I do not feel we can stand by and watch this disaster unfold in front of us. We have no choice now but to support charities that will do this work for us.

That is why I have chosen Magic Breakfast for my fundraising raffle, which aims to provide the most vulnerable children their first meal of the day, and for many their only meal of the day.

Some of you will have participated in my model raffles before, where we raised a huge amount for Save the Children. I am asking you once again to please dig deep for the kids of the U.K.
The prizes are absolute one-offs. If you are a Judge Dredd fan and you win one of these you will be safe in the knowledge that no-one else has a piece like this.

The first prize is everyone’s favourite, Sensitive Klegg, inspired by the famous 2000AD cover drawn by Chris Weston. Many folk have asked if I will ever raffle him, and I said no. However, the situation now demands that you get your chance to win this peaceful giant alien lizard!

The second prize is the only Judge Dredd Portable Rad-Sleet Simulator (or Snowglobe) known to exist. My creation was inspired by Judge Dredd and his squad in their bid to reach Dan Tanna Junction to stop the Sov invasion, wading through inclement weather after Weather Control was destroyed.


PLEASE READ THE RAFFLE RULES CAREFULLY

Here’s the deal with the raffle:
One ticket = £4
Three tickets = £10
Seven tickets = £20

You can enter as many times as you like. However, you can ONLY WIN ONE PRIZE.

I will be drawing for 2nd prize first. If you win , and your name is drawn a second time, I will redraw for 1st prize.
If you want to be included in the raffle you MUST provide your name and one way by which I can contact you if you win.

PLEASE donate if you are not entering the raffle. Any amount will be gratefully received.

I will be keeping the page open until 22/11/20, and doing the draw shortly after that. I will then contact the lucky winners and arrange for the items to be parcelled you and posted.

Thank you everyone! Please give generously - we need to feed our kids this Xmas.

It is, isn’t it? A total failure of the state.

I was incandescent with anger when those votes came in. I thought I’d try and turn that energy into something more positive.

It's not on to call them scum, yet there they are voting to see children go hungry.
What a failure of the state.
Good on you for doing this dude.

Well done for acting on this SM, I believe charity is a sign of govt failure, but this needs to be done! Tickets bought!

Thank you for buying the tickets!

 And yes, I totally agree - charity shouldn't be needed to make sure millions of kids in the sixth richest nation in the world get a meal.

I wish we had any other choice, but the kids can’t wait for the adults to sort it out.

Thanks to all - I can’t believe we’ve almost hit target before the day is out!! I really appreciate everyone’s generosity.

Currently at £700 odd quid.  £1k seems well within reach.

A nice rebuttal to Ben Bradley ...

It's nice to think of the Tories as just a BUMP in the road...

Great to see your fundraising (https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/dreddmodelraffle) going so well.

Hi all!!

There’s only 10 days until the draw for the Judge Dredd Snowglobe and Sensitive Klegg models!

All raffle proceeds to Magic Breakfast, a charity who give meals to vulnerable kids.

We’ve smashed the target, but can we reach £1000?

Please share the JustGiving link with 2000AD / Dredd fans!

Remember to leave your name visible if you want to be included in the raffle!

That’s amazing. I’ve asked people to buy and promote.

One question tho... shouldn’t the first place prize be drawn first so the first name out of the hat isn’t excluded from winning FIRST prize?

Thanks very much for giving it a push!! We’re now at £1100, which is just incredible.

I kind of see what you mean, but there’s another spanner in the works - for many it turns out they’d actually prefer the Dredd Snowglobe!! So to them that’s the first prize, and that’s the one being drawn for first.

So I dunno! 🤷🏻‍♀️😆

shaolin_monkey you are doing a very cool thing, to raise money for a very cool charity (regardless of the wrongs of it being needed) who gets what is secondary. So don't sweat the small stuff. Draw it which ever way the cookie crumbles and just revel in the fact you have done a very good thing and just happen to have thrown in some very generous prizes that might go to some lovely folks.

The rest is detail.

Thank you, I appreciate your kind words.

It is raffle day today folks!

Thank you to all who contributed to the raffle of my models, Sensitive Klegg, and the Judge Dredd Portable Rad-Sleet Simulator (snow globe).

This is in aid of Magic Breakfast, a charity that provides vulnerable kids a good meal.

As you can see from the link we absolutely smashed the target! I am hugely grateful to you all.

This is the absolute final call for anyone who wants a piece of the action. 😄👍

This afternoon I will be writing your names on raffle tickets, and this evening I will do a short video of the draw, and announce the winners!

I once had a magical breakfast, it consisted mainly of mushrooms.
Sensitive klegg's are for life, not just for breakfast.
Keep on Drokking..
