ENTRY INTEGRITY: Those individuals that qualify for prizes are automatically and systematically (not manually) entered into the drawing as their pledges are processed. Participating public sector campaigns do provide individual donor information, which is audited, so public sector qualifiers can be assured they will be included and there is little room for human error. Companies who do not typically provide individual pledge information may submit a list of employees that qualify. Those names are added to the data base of automatic qualifiers. Additionally, those people who submitted an entry outside of the automatic qualification process are also entered into the data base. Although we cannot publish the list of all those that qualify, companies can request a list of their employees prior to each drawing. NO DONATION NECESSARY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. DONATION WILL NOT IMPROVE CHANCES OF WINNING.
