This raffle is meant to raise some funds for a project that a dear friend is spearheading that will support the purchase of an adobe building (that had been used historically as a gathering space for workers of colors) and to give it a new life. Here’s a little more on it:
“This building will be by and for people of color in Durango, where we can honor the contributions of our elders as an example to help our young people thrive in their examples. When the health of the most marginalized community members improves, the health of the entire community improves. It's about helping each other. Working together to make things affordable to long-contributing residents, in a booming tourist town, where real estate prices are sky high. It helps to nurture the residents who strive to hold on during the postmodern boom and bust cycles. Mutual aid.” There’s so much more to the project and vision, so if you’re interested to learn more or donate directly click here !
If you’re interested in both supporting and possibly winning a custom dendritic agate ring- purchase some raffle tickets! Here’s how it works:
- each ticket is $10 and you can buy as many as you want (each counts as a separate entry)
- purchase them through my website or via Venmo (100% of proceeds will go to this project)
- On May 12th I will tally up everyone’s ticket entries and randomly select a winner
- That winner will receive a free custom ring with their choice of a dendritic agate stone and design. Some examples are shown in the pictures above. (Please note, this will only include one small ball of 14k gold, should you wish for it to be included)
- Domestic shipping is included
