It is time to mention yet another wonderful raffle hosted by @raffleready. The DSC Frontline Foundation is raffling off a once in a lifetime Dangerous Game Safari!
The mission of the DSC Frontline Foundation is to provide financial relief to professional hunters and their assistants, trackers and skinners who are killed or seriously injured in the course of providing professional hunting services. The individuals we seek to help are often on the frontline of hunts and therefore exposed to the dangers inherent in hunting. These same individuals are unlikely to have adequate, or any, health insurance. They are unlikely to have life insurance or disability coverage. As a result, a serious injury has the potential to be even more devastating to these folks than to most of the rest of us. The death of a primary breadwinner could have equally dire consequences for most of the people we seek to help.
The DSC Frontline Foundation recognizes that for many hunters the quality of the adventure is due in large part to the quality and experience of the guide or outfitter. This is particularly true in the case of international hunting adventures and big game trips. It is critical to have guides and outfitters (and assistants) who have experience, and gaining that experience often involves working under harsh and dangerous conditions. With experience comes increased risk of serious injury or death.
In order to provide some relief for injuries or some compensation for the survivors of those who are killed, and to help insure that those who are injured can return to professional hunting the Foundation desires to establish a fund from which distributions to qualified individuals can be made.
Safari Specialty Importers, together with Comre Safaris, Travel Express, Trophy Solutions Africa, Spherical Freight and True-Life Taxidermy, are pleased to present this truly one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive 7-day dangerous game hunt for one hunter for Cape buffalo in South Africa.

Another great raffle here at @raffleready! The Cattery of Corpus Christi is raffling of a 2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium to help them raise funds to add an additional mobile spay/neuter clinic to reach even more people and pets!
The Cattery began in early 2007 as a dream discussed over dinner. Several exhausting months later, the dream blossomed into reality. We had an amazing first year, with over 100 adoptions and a lot of support from the community in the form of volunteers (over 100!), donations, print and media coverage, boutique sales, a full boarding area, and successful fundraisers.
However at the end of 2008, we realized that it was unrealistic in this economy to continue paying the rent we were being charged for our location. Supporters wanted to buy us a building but unfortunately we did not find one in time for a seamless transition. The kitties were kept safe in a building on a supporters land outside of the city limits and were taken to Petsmart Saturday – Wednesday for adoption, while looking for a new suitable home for our feline friends. While it seemed like a bad start to the year, the number of adoptions doubled and we ended 2009 with 231 adoptions! We found a new home for the kitties in April and by August the kitties were all moved in and settled into their new shelter.
Things continue to go well with donations up and the building of new quarantine and isolation buildings. We are able to continue our work for the cats and kittens of Corpus Christi because of generous sponsors and supporters!
The Cattery offers an alternative to traditional animal shelters in providing a no-kill, cage-free haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats. From there, we seek permanent, loving homes for these animals. In addition, our organization promotes public awareness regarding the value of animals and their welfare, the dangers of pet overpopulation, and the benefit of quality human-animal companionship.
