Willow’s Wish is running the 2nd Annual "HOWLIDAY" RAFFLE FUNDRAISER where you have an opportunity to win ONE of FIVE fantastic prizes!! Everyone always says how they wish they could meet
and volunteer at the SKD shelter. Here’s your chance to not only meet Nami but to also spend a week at the SKD shelter with THE DMT SURVIVORS in South Korea! Let’s raise some much needed funds to get the vet bills paid off and the dog parks finished! (**NOTE - due to COVID, the winner of the flight last year,
, is still waiting to travel but will do so as soon as travel permits!)
Tickets are $25/each and that will get you one of 250 entries. There are ONLY 250 tickets available and you may purchase as many entries as you like to increase your chances of winning! Tickets can be purchased through PayPal at this link (it is pre-filled with the purchase price for one entry - simply change the total should you want more than one): www.paypal.me/HeatherAHeath/25.00USD
I will have a running list with the name and entry number for every purchase. Once we hit 250, I will announce the date for the raffle

FIRST PLACE is a ROUND TRIP ticket to Seoul, South Korea on Korean Air. If departing from the USA, we will aim to depart from a city that offers a direct flight (within reason, the connecting flight to that city will be covered as well). Personal pick up from the airport by Nami herself. Enjoy one week at the SKD shelter (room and board provided there onsite). Participate in a rescue (if the timing is right). Learn firsthand from Nami about her experiences there. Walk, play, feed, and help sit with the timid and traumatized dogs (see visitor/volunteer link: https://savekoreandogs.org/shelter-visitors-helpers/). Upon return, serve as a flight volunteer and Willow’s Wish will sponsor the 3 dogs returning with you (only if returning to the US). Dates of travel must be discussed at least 30 days in advance to assure there are no conflicts for Nami and travel will be arranged/booked directly by me. Should you feel safer traveling with someone, you are welcome to join me next July when I go for Bok Nal (traveling permitting). Valued at $3,000!
SECOND PLACE is a ROUND TRIP ticket for TWO to fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada! (Travel must take place within the US). Three nights accommodations (room & taxes only) at a centrally located hotel in historic downtown Vegas included. Two tickets to the infamous Mob Museum OR a cooking class for two (2) at my new venue, Vegas Vegan Culinary School & Eatery.

Our goal is to help SKD help the dogs. The mission of Willow’s Wish is to offer viable solutions to globally improve animal welfare through humane education, legislation, sterilization, conservation and adoption. Cruelty is not culture and rescue has no borders. Together we can give these animals a voice and make a difference!!
RULES OF THE GAME
FROM HEATHER HEATH POST
Each dog rescued from the #DogMeatTrade #SouthKorea, chosen by Nami Kim, will have 20 raffle tickets. Each ticket is $5. When all 20 tickets are sold, they will be mixed up and I will go live and randomly/blindly select the winner. To purchase a raffle ticket, use this PayPal link and select the friends/family option (adjust the total should you want more than one ticket). I will transfer the $100 to Nami once all tickets are purchased just like I did for the proceeds from the t-shirt campaign. Comment below the post how many tickets you are purchasing and the name you have chosen for this pup. If someone chooses to make a $100 donation for the name, anyone who already purchased a ticket will be credited for the next pup's naming.
These are the previous winning names, no more available:

Nami and I wanted to thank each and every person who has partaken in the “Name Game” over the 138 Rounds!!! Nami tells me I am her savings account and to hold the funds until something comes up and she really needs it. So over time I send her the funds in lump amounts that go directly towards a bill she has to take care of. The most recent $3,000 that I sent today went to Dr. Lee’s vet charges. Nami said that you don’t realize it, but you are saving the lives of these dogs who are desperate for the more complicated treatments through your support of this game. So thank you!!!

Hi everyone! I just hung up with Nami. She is struggling financially with all of these rescues. I just transferred her $4,200 from the balance of the Name Game proceeds to pay Dr. Kim for the first batch of dogs from the Namyangju farm. She's going to have that same bill if not more in a month. She was so worried about that bill and then remembered I had the Name Game fund. She asks me to be her "savings bank" with this fund so when something urgent like this comes up, she can draw from it.
We have 27 more dogs to name which will help replenish the fund. I also have the SKD Pawliday Raffle that I will be updating on tonight if you'd like to participate. Because I run raffles, they are not considered tax deductible but you can always donate to the SKD US Foundation directly to help as well (Donate (paypal.com)). Your support is appreciated so much more than you know!!
