Music Downloads and Sweepstakes Game Cards… a winning combination!

To raise money, you sell CharityMania Tickets (prices between $5 and $25 per ticket) and keep 70% of the money you collect. The CharityMania Ticket (i.e. the stub at the top) contains an access code that allows the buyer to download a fantastic set of digital music from our CharityStudio site. Beneath this ticket, a promotional sweepstakes game card gives the recipient a chance to win $1000s in prize money!

Why sell music downloads? Why not just use the Sweepstakes Game Cards?

There is a legal difference between a sweepstakes and raffle. With a raffle, people pay money for a ticket that gives them a chance to win prizes. Only specific types of organizations can conduct a raffle and most states regulate how the raffles can operate. A sweepstakes is not a raffle. A sweepstakes is a promotion that provides extra incentive for people to buy a product that you are selling. The sweepstakes must have a ‘no purchase necessary’ method of entry. In a CharityMania fundraiser, the Sweepstakes Game Cards are promotion only and are not sold directly. Every time someone buys a CharityMania Ticket, they purchase over $5 to $25 worth of premium music downloads (depending on the price of the CharityMania ticket) from our CharityStudio. The Sweepstakes Game Card is a promotion that provides a great extra incentive for a person to support your cause.

Legally, our Sweepstakes Game Cards work much like the game pieces in the Monopoly sweepstakes® at McDonald’s®. You cannot buy a Monopoly game piece directly. Instead, you purchase things like hamburgers and drinks and receive the game pieces for free. The Monopoly game pieces are promotion.

No purchase necessary sweepstakes tst

All CharityMania sweepstakes are “no purchase necessary”. If someone wants a free Sweepstakes Game Card, they can come to your organization and fill out a request form (provided by CharityMania) to get a free Game Card. They mail their completed request to CharityMania along with a self-addressed stamped envelope and then we will mail the person a Game Card. We do not mail them the music download access code (because they are not paying). This process is very standard for all companies that conduct sweepstakes.

What does an example game card look like?

Participants can win $1000s in prizes based on the points scored by teams pre-printed on the back of their sweepstakes game cards. You do not pick any of the teams or need to predict who will win. There is no skill needed to win prizes.

Watch this quick, 2 minute overview video for the best explanation of how FootballMania works. Trust us, it will save you lots of time.

FootballMania Video
Overview (2 mins)

CharityMania games are all exciting, no-skill necessary sweepstakes based on sports. All game cards have an equal chance to win prize money based on the performance of the random teams pre-printed on the back of the cards. Game card holders do not require any skill or knowledge of the sport. You do not pick any of the teams or predict who will win games. All teams are pre-printed on the game cards and have an equal, and random, chance of winning based on the points they score.

For example, our popular FootballMania game cards contain 3 random teams in each of the 18 weeks of the pro football season (you get 3 new teams each week). A game card's value is equal to the total combined points scored by the 3 teams printed on the card in a given week. Every week, the 15 highest scoring game cards and the 3 lowest scoring game cards all win prizes. There are 4,960 unique game cards in a game, each of which has a minimum 1 in 15.7 chance to win a prize during the season. All of our other fundraisers work similarly, but use different teams from their respective sports.

If you have a game card, make sure to enter the number on the CharityMania website to see if you are a winner. You do not need to take any action in order to win, but you can play along and have fun tracking your card!

Sell electronic tickets (included - no additional cost)

You can sell paper tickets, electronic tickets, or both at the same time with any CharityMania fundraiser. If you sell electronic tickets only, you do not pay any of the printing costs associated with paper tickets (only a $20 setup fee).

With electronic tickets you can raise money from people that are located outside your geographic area with the personalized web page we create for your organization. There are no additional fees and your profit is the same as if you sell paper tickets. It is super simple!
