I feel like we can -- surely agree that there are several other humane ways to fund raise these days -- don't involve a dead.

It was too expensive for you to come up with all the funds for your child to be able to do this trip.
So he was gonna raffle off is how do you think you have a problem with it.
No I didn't think you have a problem with that at all we felt it was a very unique fundraising idea.
