My System Specs

Raffles are pretty easy to administer actually, and not too much potential for fall-out. Just make sure you market the item as being in used, as-is condition with no raffle ticket refunds.

Any stipulated post-raffle behaviour like continuing to use the machine to fold for HWC etc. would be very difficult to enforce, though. So the deal would have to be, if you win the raffle, you get the machine in as-is condition, and once it's your property, you may do with it as you please. Of course, limiting the scope of the raffle to current HWC folders, for example, increases the likelihood that the machine will be used as desired.

This is a good idea, in my opinion.
