Ausdroid’s 2013 Christmas Raffle — Score a HTC One Mini and Google Play Gift Cards!


Ausdroid first had the idea of doing something charitable at Christmas time last year, and following the success of that little exercise, we decided to do something a bit more permanent, and started the Ausdroid Community Foundation.

Over 2013, we’ve done quite a bit of good work with ACF. We raised over $3,000 for Brian Rudd, and in conjunction with the Eli Hayes Healey Foundation, we’ve raised close to $24,000 to kick start their goals for 2014 in helping sick kids at Monash Medical Centre’s Intensive Care Unit.

The work doesn’t stop here. ACF wasn’t a one year project; it’s something we’re still passionate about, and something we’re continuing to work on. Developing new ideas, working on new projects… just as things are busy with Ausdroid, so they are with ACF as well.

This Christmas, we’d like to run a little raffle to raise a bit of extra money for the EHHF. If you’d like to know more about the EHHF, the ACF’s page for the Eli Hayes Healey Foundation has all this information.

Here’s what’s on offer

  • First prize: HTC One Mini, kindly donated by HTC Australia
  • Runner up prizes: 2 prizes of a $50 Google Play Store gift card each

Can you add paypal as a payment method?

Valued Guest

Hey Simon. ACF isn’t able to accept PayPal, because it’s a trust, and PayPal refuse to deal with trusts.

However, we can do a workaround. I’ll email you.

Valued Guest

Valued Guest

Sure. Send me an email to chris(at) and I’ll fix this up for you.
