If you’re not familiar with the Mystery Box concept, it’s pretty simple. You buy (or, in this case, donate for the chance to win) a box full of stuff and you have no idea what’s in it. Unlike the usual mystery box, in this case, you can guarantee that you will be getting a box of things related to Amanda in some way. Whether it be a Stargate water bottle, a rubber duck (Space Milkshake), book/movie, etc.
The mystery boxes aren’t for sale; when you donate, your name is put in a draw, so not everyone will be getting a mystery box. The draw you’re entered in depends on your donation; the value of the box contents differs depending on the donation amount. Donations will be grouped accordingly: $5, $10, $25, $50, $75, $100+. Each group will have their own set of mystery boxes to be won. Names will be drawn after the fundraiser closes and X number of people per group will receive a box. The number of boxes shipped will depend on the number of donations received.
In order to participate all you need is the ability to donate to S4K. Easy right? How do you donate? Sanctuary for Kids has indicated that they prefer online donations which can be made here. Please use the code #MysteryBox when you donate. It’s easier for Sanctuary for Kids to keep track of what’s being donated for this fundraiser. If you choose to donate online, please email a copy of your PayPal receipt to me as confirmation of your donation amount. We do understand that not everybody has the ability to donate online so, if this is the case, please contact me. I want everyone who wants to participate to be able to. We will work something out. If you prefer to donate but not win a mystery box, that’s ok too, just let me know so we can still count your donation toward the fundraiser total. Or if you want to donate on behalf of someone else (or enter their name as a surprise), that’s really great. You can email a copy of your receipt to email@example.com and if you’re entering on behalf of someone else, that’s the time to let us know. By default, all mystery boxes will be shipped to the address on the confirmation. If the address used is different to the address you want your box (if you win) shipped to, this is when you let me know. I will reply to each email to confirm the address, if you do not hear back from me, please get in touch. Your email might have been missed or vanished into the great beyond. All donation confirmations must be received by April 15, 2018. That’s one month from now.
If you have any questions you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, on twitter (@ATOnline) or on facebook and I’ll do my best to answer.
So to sum it up:
– $5 CAD minimum donation to Sanctuary for Kids gets your name in a draw
– If your donation is under a different address or is on behalf of someone else, please let me know when you forward it
– Use #MysteryBox on the donation page
– Donations must be submitted by April 15, 2018.
