    They're back folks! We're excited to announce the NWFA Winter Giveaway 2016, marking the return of our popular Supporting Member drawings!


    We're holding this giveaway (and one every three months after) as a show of appreciation for our Supporting Members, whose financial contributions make this site possible. The value and quantity of the giveaway prizes reflect the amount of donations we've received during the previous three months. Supporting Vendors may also donate items or services for extra publicity, so watch for bonus prizes!
    Current supporters are automatically given one to five entries based on their level of support. Simply visit the giveaway page and enter now.

    Members who wish to become supporters can do so via the donation page, which is also accessible through the link at the bottom of the page. Non-supporters who do not wish to contribute may enter via postcard as outlined in the rules below.

    Winners will be drawn and announced the evening of January 28th, 2016 at 6pm.
    All entries must be received by January 27th, no later than 5pm.

    I hope someone wins. It won't be me. I can't find anyplace to enter. Guess I'm too dumb to win.

    Smile. Yup I was there already. Unless there is a hidden button to push to enter, I'm at a loss. Or do I have to donate something to enter? I'm getting older as we speak so I'm trying to figure out of I'm just a CRS patient or if there's a trick I'm missing?

    No problem! Members who donate (supporters) can enter online, with the button appearing after they do so. Those who wish to enter but not donate can enter via postcard.

    So far it's not going all that well, just a little over the break-even point.

    Hopefully that will change as we get closer to the date of the drawing :)

    So how does this work if someone want's to enter but can only donate $5.00-$10.00.....Mail in a check with entry postcard? Hit the donate button and use credit/debit for $5.00-$10.00 AND mail in a postcard with transaction info? Put a $5.00- $10.00 bill in an envelope with the postcard. You will accept any size donation I presume? $4.67?

    If I hadn't been in the loop for a few years I can see where it might be a bit confusing. Hell, us supporters got it easy, it says right there in plain English how many entries we got. Just hit the button!:D

    I might need to clarify it a bit :D

    There's no purchase/donation necessary to enter via postcard, one just needs to read the rules for the info and send it in. If he or she felt like donating what they could, they could use the donate button on the sidebar of the donate page.

    The minimum for the online entry is the $5 monthly donation option.

    I understand all this. What I'm seeing as confusing, especially to a new member that may not be all that computer savvy....Where to donate? I finally find "Donate" under the information drop-down. Once there...Crazy the donate button with CC choice info wasn't there the first time(glitch?).

    The rules to the drawing, I think are fairly easy. Finding a place to donate is not. Perhaps if you could make it easier (for us less savvy users) to donate $5.00 (Because it doesn't seem quite right to enter without throwing some little tidbit to the upkeep of the board) Now another question would be....Wifey is not a yearly supporter. Can Wifey receive one(1) free entry for this months contest with a single $5.00 donation?

    I'm really not trying to be all picky about this I'm only trying to make it easier for people to send MONEY! This is terribly off topic too I realize now, sorry. Move or delete as you see fit Joe.:(
