Enter any and all friends and family into a raffle for Kris Allen’s new CD when it comes out! The recipient will be able to choose between a physical CD pre-order or digital pre-order.

  1. Donate $10 to ANY project on Kris Allen’s giving page at DonorsChoose. If you want to enter multiple people, you can do it all with one donation and one email. For example, if you want to enter 5 people, just donate $50 and in your forwarded email give me the info for each of your 5 honorees.
  2. Forward your donation confirmation to KrisAllenFansUnite@gmail.com *no later than midnight Central Time on Wednesday, August 17 (that’s exactly 1 week from today!)*
  3. In your forwarded email, provide the following information:
    • The name of the person you’re entering (twitter/online names are sufficient).
    • A method for contacting this person (an email address would be great, but a Twitter name will work too).
    • Optionally, your reason for entering this person – if provided, it will be shared with your honoree.
  4. I will contact your honoree and let them know they’ve been entered into the drawing and give them with an entry number. Your gift will remain anonymous.
  5. On August 18, I will announce the winning number on Twitter.
