How wonderfully generous.
If I should be fortunate enough to win I'd like to give back too. I'd like you to take the $52.00 and donate it to a charity or other worthy cause... that way it will be the gift that keeps on giving...

Hello!
I know that you should not necessarily be supporters, but I wanted to be the same.
I have not found the box fans.
However, I would gladly participate!
If you want you can go to see you too ...
A hug, My Lucky.
