Welcome to the new Chelem Dreams Toy Drive Blog.  Our old website was victim to an oversight on our part to renew our domain name so here we are with a fresh new start!  We are really excited because we are going to keep this site as a blog and that will enable us to keep all of you better informed of what we are up to on a regular basis.  So let’s get started.

Well, it’s September again and that means the elves are back from their hiatus’s up NOB and have completed their summer tans and now it’s time to get back to work.  Work! Work! Work!  After all, Christmas will be here before we know it.

None of us won the lottery this summer so that means we are depending on you guys to help us meet our fundraising goals, you’ve never let us down and this year we think we’re going to make it more worthwhile than ever before.  We’ve got some great plans and we plan on having lots of fun while we’re hard at it this fall.

To start the moneyball rolling, we’re having not just one, but two raffles with two exciting prizes!

The first raffle is for a 4 night all inclusive stay for 2 at the beautiful Hotel Riu Lupita  in Playa Del Carmen.  The drawing will be held on October 31, 2012 and the voucher will be valid for a year.  Some restrictions will apply but we’ll let you know all about that when you win.

Our second raffle is a 50/50 raffle and it’s as simple as it sounds, the winner gets half of the money raised and the kids get the other half.  Sweet!  The drawing for this raffle will be in November at the ? Annual Chili Cook-Off.  What number is this, Katie Gildersleeve?  Stay tuned right here to watch the pot of money grow and remember, you can’t win if you don’t play.

As usual, for each 25 pesos, or $2.50 US you donate, we’ll throw a ticket in the cage for you.  If you donate 100 pesos or $10.00 US, we’ll throw in 5 tickets.  If you can’t find one of us elves, or if you’re stuck NOB you can always go to our Donation Page here and donate through Paypal,  just let us know what barrel you want us to throw your tickets in, the Hotel Riu Lupita raffle or the 50/50 raffle.  If you don’t have a Paypal account, don’t worry, just hit the button and the people over at Paypal will tell you how to donate using your credit card or an e-check.

If you want to, and we hope you do, you can click on the follow button or you can subscribe to this site and you’ll get updates in your email anytime we post.  After all, we don’t want you to miss out on any of the fun.

We look forward to any comments and suggestions you have about our new blog.
