An online fundraising platform has launched that incentivises people to donate to good causes with prize draws offering dates with celebrities and other money-can’t-buy experiences.
Rafful aims to raise more than £1 million for charities over the next 12 months.
It offers prize draw tickets from £10 per entry for the chance to win a date with celebrities from the world of sport and entertainment as well as other money-can’t-buy experiences.
Currently live on the site, the inaugural prize draw went live on Sunday 21 July and offers the chance to compete in Karting with Heroes – the annual celebrity race day of Back on Track, a charity that helps treat injured British servicemen. The winner and three friends will participate in the race event at Buckmore Park in Kent on 1 September and will also mix with all the celebrities on the day including the charity’s patron, Loose Women presenter Andrea McLean (pictured).
A £10 donation earns 100 entries to the draw, up to £500, which earns 25,000 entries. Rafful hopes to raise up to £50,000 for the charity in the draw.
Upcoming Raffuls include the chance to win lunch with the cast of Benidorm and an overnight stay for two in a luxury London hotel in return for donating to The Brain Tumour Charity, and a day cooking with Aldo Zilli for donating to Centrepoint.
Rafful CEO Elliott Shuttleworth, who previously launched Gym Squid, a no joining fee, no contract, budget gym before taking over as Managing Director at Flip Out Stoke, said:
“Rafful has come up with a solution that takes the joy of giving beyond the feel-good factor, offering substantially better odds than the national lottery, allowing anybody who donates via the website to win a once-in-a-lifetime prize. “
“British troops are recognised as the best in the world and are heroes, but even heroes get hurt. We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to start our fundraising activities by supporting such a worthy cause.”
