Video Equipment Raffle for Isara Charity

The good folks over at, an organization dedicated to helping kids in Thailand, is holding something I hope to see more of: a video-equipment raffle fundraiser. The organizers of the raffle certainly know our demographic, there's not much we wouldn't do for a chance at a cool new piece of kit, and being able to help others in need at the same time is a fantastic bonus. The fundraiser is to purchase a used van for the Isara center, their goal is $7,000, and they're already half way there. The tickets range from $5-15 each. The list of donated prizes is impressive, and are from top tier companies like: Abel Cine, Letus, Redrock Micro, Cinevate, Cool Lights, Vidled, Spec-Comm, Wrightsville, and DV Rebel's Guide. I've given to raffles for charity before of course, but most of the time the prizes are shall we say, a little lackluster. But in this case it's a win-win. I want to help these kids, AND I want to win this gear! Take a look at the Isara website for the list of prizes, and more about the organization. Hopefully Videomaker readers can help put them over the top.
