Each year, our Crackin’ Wax Family works hard to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America while cracking into cases of Topps Allen & Ginter. Last year was our most successful event yet—we were able to send off $10,000! As our thank you to you for helping us try to smash that record, we have assembled the largest and most valuable Charity Prize Pack to date, and one of you generous donors will win the entire thing. Not only that, we’re also kicking in additional Milestone prizes AND an awesome prize from Topps that will go to the highest donor. FOR U.S. AND CANADA ADDRESSES ONLY!
Here’s how it works: for every $10 U.S. you donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America at our special GoFundMe page, we’ll give you one entry as a thank you. Donations will be accepted thru Monday August 30, 2021. On Tuesday August 31, 2021, we’ll randomly select a winner (using random.org) from the full list of donors to win the ENTIRE Charity Prize Pack (watch this video to see how the winner is selected). FOR U.S. AND CANADA ADDRESSES ONLY!
CHARITY PRIZE PACK—This is the big one! One donor will take home every single item pictured in the gallery below (minus the one marked “YOU’RE THE TOPPS”). Winner will be selected via random.org (watch this video to see how the winner is selected). FOR U.S. AND CANADA ADDRESSES ONLY!
$5K MILESTONE PRIZE—If we end with $5,000–$9,999.99 in donations, the first runner up in the Charity Prize Pack drawing will win one sealed box of 2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Chrome from Crackin’ Wax. If we do not exceed $9,999.99 in donations, there will be no prize for the second runner up. If we do exceed $9,999.99 in donations, this prize will be awarded to the second runner up, and the first runner up will instead win the $10K Milestone Prize. Winner will be selected via random.org (watch this video to see how the winner is selected). FOR U.S. AND CANADA ADDRESSES ONLY!
$10K MILESTONE PRIZE—If we end with no less than $10,000 in donations, the first runner up in the Charity Prize Pack drawing will win $250 in credit at Blowout Cards (donated by Deb P.) and a sealed box of 2021 Bowman Sapphire from Crackin’ Wax. Additionally, the second runner up will win the $5K Milestone Prize. Winner will be selected via random.org (watch this video to see how the winner is selected). FOR U.S. AND CANADA ADDRESSES ONLY!
“YOU’RE THE TOPPS” PRIZE—The person who donates the highest total amount in U.S. dollars will win multiple sealed boxes donated by Topps (see the final pic in the gallery below for details). The winner of the Charity Prize Pack is excluded from winning this prize. In the event that the winner of the Charity Prize Pack is also the person who donates the highest total amount in U.S. dollars, the person who donates the second-highest total amount in U.S. dollars will instead win. In the event that multiple people are tied for highest total amount donated in U.S. dollars (excluding the winner of the Charity Prize Pack), the winner of this prize will then be selected via random.org. FOR U.S. AND CANADA ADDRESSES ONLY!
If I do not provide an e-mail address, can I still win? No. Only those who provide an e-mail address during the donation process (AND ONLY during the donation process) can participate. Your e-mail address is needed so that we may contact you if you win any of our prizes. We cannot accept your e-mail address unless it has been included as part of your donation. Additionally, only the e-mail address you provide during the donation process can or will be used.
How will I be notified if I win? You will be contacted via the e-mail address you supply on the GoFundMe page during the donation process. If we are unable to contact you, or if you do not respond to our e-mail by September 2, 2021, we will pick a new winner.
What happens if I do not respond to your e-mail by September 2, 2021? After we notify you via e-mail that you have won a prize, you must respond by September 2, 2021. If you do not, you will automatically forfeit your winnings—NO EXCEPTIONS. Please be sure to check your spam, junk, and trash folders for any emails from us, GoFundMe, and/or Big Brothers Big Sisters.
If I live outside the U.S. and Canada, can I still enter? We can only ship to U.S. and Canada addresses at this time. If you live elsewhere in the world, we recommend using a re-shipping service with a U.S. mailing address. If your address is outside the U.S. and Canada, you will not be entered.
If I donate $27 now and $13 later, will I receive four entries? Yes, however it will be much easier to track donation amounts for entries if donations are made in increments of $10.
How many entries will I receive if I donate $19? You will receive one entry for every $10. Donating $19 will equal just one entry.
If I leave a tip or extra amount to GoFundMe, will that go towards more entries? No. Unfortunately, any extra amount tipped or paid to GoFundMe is not considered a donation and cannot be put towards entries. That information is not shared with us, and we would have no idea how much extra you may have tipped or paid.
Is my donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters via your GoFundMe campaign tax deductible? According to GoFundMe and Big Brothers Big Sisters, yes. Donations thru our GoFundMe page are typically 100% tax deductible.
