Every Bit Can Help and Give Hope to Others!
One of the co-founders of Avazoo has a background in hurricane disaster relief and wanted to find a way to raise unprecedented amounts of money for charities around the world. All too often, non-profit organizations with noble missions found their causes cut short due to a lack of funding. The founders decided: Never again, and made the determination to come up with the ultimate fundraiser – a chance to win a billion dollars, with a large percentage of the proceeds going to important humanitarian causes and charities around the world. And so Avazoo and the Billion Dollar Raffle was born!
We are counting on the fact that the majority of people around the world would really want to play to win a billion dollars, which in turn will raise billions of dollars. Individuals all around the world will receive aid through our large donations to foundations and charitable groups, as we, with your help, fulfill the most pressing of needs. It’s an ingenious means to a morally great end. We hope to provide unprecedented disaster relief, food, clean water, electricity, and even more to the people who are most in need.
An Estimated THREE BILLION DOLLARS to Be Donated!
Through the Billion Dollar Raffle business model, more than sufficient funds will be raised to pay out all of the cash prizes. After all the cash prizes have been paid out, a portion of the proceeds will be donated through an International Philanthropy Board to be allocated to various charitable projects worldwide. It is estimated that we will donate up to three billion dollars from the Billion Dollar Raffle prize draw event.
Our Flagship Cause – AIDFound: The World’s DEDICATED Natural Disaster Relief Charity
As mentioned above, Avazoo’s Co-founder has been actively involved in hurricane relief work. The desperate need and the noble efforts of relief organizations touched his heart and he was determined to devise the ultimate fundraiser to make sure that no victim would be left behind ever again. Because of this, he assembled his business colleagues together and they worked long and hard to create an international disaster relief organization. That organization is known today as AIDFound.
AIDFound’s mission is to bridge the gap between the first few days after the impact of a natural disaster and the time it takes local governments and insurance companies to step in and offer relief.
AIDFound’s goal is to provide emergency funds to victims through local community leaders within 72 hours. While we are there to offer a helping hand, AIDFound acts as a virtual ATM to provide immediate funds for relief organizations and for those in need.
After a natural disaster, AIDFound works closely with community leaders to address actual real-time relief needs on a local level. Where insurance companies and government organizations fall short or delay, AIDFound steps in to ensure that the necessities are addressed. Their goal is to provide critical relief funding within 72 hours of a disaster, when it is needed most.
Just The Tip Of The Iceberg!
AIDFound is just the tip of the iceberg. It is only one of COUNTLESS non-profit organizations that Avazoo will donate to. When you purchase a ticket for the Billion Dollar Raffle, much of the money will go to all kinds of charities all around the world – helping the blind, building homes for the homeless, bringing clean water to people in impoverished lands, and much, much more. This is just the beginning. Your raffle ticket will help us CHANGE THE WORLD!
