I suspect that many of you have heard the Rob Hanson of Evenfall Studios lost his shop and all his possessions because of the recent wildfires in California. If not, here’s the story.
All of us at Lost Art Press and Crucible Tool have agreed to run a raffle to help raise money for Rob and his wife to help rebuild their lives. The prize is the absolute last copy of our “By Hammer and Hand” letterpress poster. We found this final copy recently in our basement in a stack of miscellaneous bits of paper. I set it aside for something like this.
Here is how the raffle works.
Donate $20 directly to Rob via his PayPal link. Please note that we are not collecting any money ourselves. This money goes directly to Rob.
When you receive your email confirmation from PayPal, forward that email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every $20 you donate gets you one entry in the raffle. Donate $40 and you have two entries in the raffle. Donate $60 and you have three, and so on. Yes, it’s OK if you are outside the United States for this.
On Dec. 9 at noon Eastern time, we’ll select a winner via a random-number generator. We’ll send the poster to that person, and I’ll personally pay for the postage.
And that’s it.
Thanks in advance for helping out a fellow toolmaker who has suffered an incredible tragedy.
