Every Friday, we have a raffle at my work (Nortel Networks in Wollongong) to raise money for charities. Normally the proceeds go to Camp Quality, but one Friday a month the money goes to a different charity, to spread the benefit around.
Because the NSW Down Syndrome Association has given Megan and I so much help since the birth of Grace, I asked if they could be added to the rotating schedule. Today was their turn. Since it was my cause, I bought $10 worth of tickets (normally I just buy $1 or $2 worth). When the raffle was drawn, I won! First prize was a choice between two bottles of alcohol or a $50 gift voucher, so I took the $50 and donated it to the DSA.
