Win one of two veteran trips to South Lebanon!
Do you want to support the relief campaigns of the Veterans for Lebanon Foundation (VVL Foundation) at the same time as having a chance to win a fully arranged 8-day veterans trip to South Lebanon?
It's possible! By participating in the VVL Sponsor Lottery you even have a double chance. This year, the VVL Foundation is raffling 2x this main prize worth € 1350 per winning ticket.
Why a lottery?
Next summer, we will ship the 35th sea container, loaded with relief supplies obtained from donations, to Beirut. Sending a container now costs much more than two years ago. As always, we try to obtain the necessary money for this through donations. That is not always easy, especially since Lebanon is not the only country with enormous problems. But for most of us Unifil veterans, the country has an extra place in their hearts, so in addition to writing to companies and municipalities, we will continue to appeal to you as a reader by a sponsor lottery, so that we can continue to send containers.
What does a ticket cost and what exactly is this money spent on?
One lottery ticket costs € 20,- and a maximum of 1500 tickets are sold. 85% of your lottery ticket will go to the Veterans for Lebanon Foundation. 100% of that goes to the people of Lebanon who can really use our help. The raffle will run from June 15, 2022 to September 15, 2022. On September 16, 2022, notary J.H. Brummelhuis in Deventer will draw the two winning tickets.
