Game: Pay Off My Debt

I just came up with a great idea for a game!

It's very simple to play, all you have to do is send me money through paypal! Doesn't that sound like fun? 😉

But that's not much of a game all by itself, so I need to add something else:
If someone sends at least $10, I will write their name on a piece of paper (Winner's Board) and put either a smiley face sticker next to it, or a gold star. For each $10 sent, the name gets one sticker – send $100, you get 10 stickers by your name.

Then, at the end of the month anyone with a sticker will be entered into a drawing (1 entry for each sticker) and the winner will get 30% of the donation total for that month. And I'll take a picture of the "Winner's Board" and email it to the winner.

All participants also get added to my Christmas Card list!

    I've beaten credit card debt, but the battle between me and my car loan still endures.

    so if i'm the only one to give you $10, then I will get $3 back. AND i will get my name written on a piece of paper with a gold star next to it?

    I guess so.. but that doesn't seem like a very effective money handling strategy. 😛

    ah. so spudart actually got to the core of this program. I wonder if the paper that the gold star is placed onto is a seven dollar bill.

    I'd pay $10 to get a seven-dollar bill with a gold star!
