Sarlo Bill Allowing ‘Remote Raffles’ Now Law
"It's about damn time" says Robert Pitard of RafflesNow - the 50/50 Fundraising Raffle App.
Citizens are pissed, Volunteer Fire Departments in PA are up in arms, NY lawmakers have been sitting on their hands, etc..
Laws & regulations have SLOWLY continued to progress for the better, but not as nearly as fast as they should be, and that is a real shame. Robert Pitard says "Raffles have had an unnecessary and longstanding bad rap associated with them, and it is no longer justified." Robert Pitard continues to say that "We here in the US should be embracing & encouraging the use of technology in an all-inclusive manner and way. Technology based & advanced raffling methods such as online raffles, virtual raffles, and raffle apps with the inclusion of online digital payment means should be the standard, not the opposite. Major league sports venues successfully host 50/50 raffle all the time in a mainstream fashion, and many do so online presently. To make matters even more interesting, they do so with with great success often generating raffle pot sizes in the $100,000 to the multi $1,000,000 dollar range. SUPPORTING ANY/ALL CHARITABLE & NONPROFIT BASED ORGANIZATIONS VIA THE USE OF ONLINE RAFFLES SHOULD BE NO DIFFERENT."
Charitable & nonprofit based orgs/entities need the help now and they need it more than ever. This pandemic is simply handicapping them. Times like these call for innovation & creation, with an element of problem solving. This is what America has been founded on. With Covid-19 & Social Distancing requirements in place...online raffles have been surging as they provide a newfound lifeline to struggling organizations. Online raffles can easily become a major fundraising tool/solution. Just take a peek at www.omaze.com/ and you will see. Straight donations are great, but often they are not enough as they can often fall on deaf ears, be over exhausted, and/or static in nature. Raffles on the other hand are compelling and of interest to many. Robert Pitard continues to say "Yes - Raffles are a Game of Chance, but, the word game is misleading here. This is not a game. This is real life, with real life consequences. Bottom line...this is a donation path! Participants are willingly donating to a cause. Most if not all willing donating (by way of participation), knowing that they most likely will not win. Is this odd? Absolutely not. These participants know the chance to win is there, but are perfectly complacent in the fact that they have willingly helped a good cause. If they didn't think such...they would have never donated a penny otherwise. How do I know this? Because I have personally asked many! Point being is that they bought into the cause at the very onset, and were willing to help the cause from the very onset. And for that reason, I call it a DONATION to the cause."
Lastly, #RafflesNow applaud both the Governor and Senator of New Jersey (NJ) for expediting this ever-so important bill. I'm confident that the other great states here in the US will take note and appropriate action as well in support of this movement, as they too have the power to help and make change. Citizens put them in their role, and those same citizens are now speaking. Please...let's now listen, make some change, and do some good!

RafflesNow readily exhibits both of these qualities in an easy and friendly to use app. Don't let Covid slow you and your organization down. Start fundraising with the latest fundraising-based tool; RafflesNow - The 50/50 Fundraising Raffle App.

Fundraising is always challenging. Fundraising during COVID-19 is even more challenging
A virtual raffle can happen anywhere, is easy, and just about any nonprofit can run and host it! It works very similarly to a traditional fundraising raffle, but everything happens online via the RafflesNow mobile app, so it’s much easier to manage, and nobody will need to go door-to-door / person-to-person selling raffle tickets.
So recently we here at RafflesNow noticed that wikiHow posted an extensive "How-To" article about raffling online. The online article is titled "How to Do an Online Raffle" and was posted on October 17, 2019. Here is the direct link to it: www.wikihow.com/Do-an-Online-Raffle
This article was:
Where is this blog post going?
And why is it important enough for RafflesNow to share it here on the RafflesNow BLOG and with the general public?
Now don't get us wrong here! Just to be clear...we are not knocking wikiHow with our "Wiki What" post. We are simply stating that there is now a better, simpler, and more convenient way to host raffles.
A way that wiki most likely is not aware of.
The answer to both of these questions is that wikiHow's article as written is both
good & bad.
It's important for us to note...
That we here at RafflesNow 100% are all for the promotion & education of fundraising via raffles!
With that said, deep down inside we are thankful for their resources, contributions,
and the time & effort that they put forth in
aiding with the helping of spreading the good word on raffling.
Now let us elaborate! (This explanation is a 1-Minute read)
So overall their article is very good with respect to the fact that it does answer and/or provide a lot of the answers and insight on "How to Do an Online Raffle."
The problem is...
Now, thanks to "RafflesNow" - America's #1 Most Trusted Raffle App/Platform this article is basically obsolete!

This was an important Q&A based question about raffling that was recently posted on QUORA:
What is the best app or online website to do a raffle draw and pick a winner?
Great question…one that I am happy to assist answering for you. My answer is RafflesNow - The Raffle App:
RafflesNow - Raffle. Anywhere.
To answer this question effectively I would need a little bit more information. I say this because there are a couple of considerations here. Not all raffle apps are created equally, meaning some are much more robust and feature rich than others. With that said, RafflesNow is the most robust, most complete mobile Raffle App on the market as it is 100% fully automated. Another factor is your intended raffle type…50/50 cash raffle or a giveaway (prize) based raffle. This are two very different raffle types and have different backend requirements, so no singular app and/or website currently caters to both simultaneously.
If you’re simply looking for a simple RNG - Random Number Generator, you can source such by typing the same in the search field of the app stores. You can also search keyword “Raffles” and other basic RNG based apps will show up. From there simply pick the one that best fits your need.
