Advent Raffle

General Description & Conditions

Do good and win for yourself:
It always feels great to bring people joy, especially at Christmas time. By making a donation to Aegean Trails in December 2018, you will have the chance to win several packages of exceptional quality bike products from various companies.: Deuter, Evoc, Schwalbe, Maloja, Smith, Qloom.

That’s what this is about: Aegean Trails is an initiative of volunteer helpers from all over Europe who are committed to trail construction & maintenance and uniform signage of mountain bike trails in the Aegean. This extends the tourist season there by up to four months, which boosts the economy and thus directly benefits the islanders. The project is financed exclusively by donations. Many sponsors contribute know-how, infrastructure, material or contacts.

This is how you can take part: every donation counts. Starting from 5 Euro you can win one of the sensational prize packages. By the way: Generous donors are rewarded – the more you donate, the more often your name will end up in the lottery pot: 5 euros = 1 entry, 10 euros = 2 entries, 15 euros = 3 entries, 20 euros = 4 entries, 100 euros = 20 entries :-).

1. Make a donation to our GoFundMe Campaign. Please donate only with real names – no alias, no fake name. You can hide your name for the public.
2. Leave the company’s name whose products you’d like to win in the GoFundMe comment box. Please note: Each donation is only valid for one company, if you are interested in the products of several companies, you have to donate several times separately.

This is the only way we know that you have donated and the only way we can notify you if you are one of the lucky winners of the draw.

Period of the raffle
The competition runs between 01.12. – 26.12.2018. The draw and announcement of the winners will take place on 28.12.2018.

A great way to bring on the Christmas cheer – not only for the lucky winners, but also for the incredibly grateful locals in Greece.
