Starting today and running the rest of the week, I'll be highlighting one prize package a day. I've touched on the prizes available, but wanted to give each prize its own post as we near the completion of the fundraising challenge. I will go in order, so that means today's prize is:
Prize Package #1: Michael W.'s Awesome Custom Bowie Knife.
It's almost a cliché to say that pictures don't do something justice, but in this case it's 100% true. Folks, this knife is nothing short of gorgeous, honestly. The knife is just a hair over 14" long, with the blade about 9.25" long and 1/8" thick - all the way through. The knife is handmade by "Dr. Mike", Michael W., so it's 100% American-made right here on the eastern seaboard.
If you love beautiful things - knife-related or not - this prize package is something to be considered. Even if you hate all weaponry, this should get an exception given the extraordinary craftsmanship that went into producing such a work of art. It looks like it could have come off the belt of one of the fighters at the Alamo, except that it's in far too good condition - a little chipping, perhaps a chunk taken out of the handle, and you'd believe this was 200 years old.
A handmade, custom damascus steel bowie knife will run you anywhere from $250 to $Howmuchyougot, but you can make a 100% tax-deductible donation of $10 and get a chance to win it. Where else can you find odds like that? Right now the chances with a single ticket are less than 1:50 - you won't get that kind of deal in Vegas! And again, even if you don't win, you can claim the $10 on your taxes next year - it's like you can't lose! Donate more, have more of a tax deduction - and more chances to win!
Remember, to win this, you need a ticket first. To get a ticket, you need to donate here:
Prostate Cancer Foundation
Plus, remember, you can be part of the Great Mustache Eradication of 2012 as well as the hot pink kilt - what more could you ask for?
That is all.
