Hey, Kids - Want to Win an iPad?

My sister is the Executive Director of FCS, so I kind of have some faith that this is, in fact, legit:

Please support Family Crisis Services of Northwest Mississippi, Inc. by purchasing a raffle ticket to win an Apple IPAD with Wi-Fi - 16GB. Each chance is $20. The drawing will be held on Thursday, December 16, 2010 at 3 p.m. at Family Crisis Services - you do not have to be present to win. To purchase a chance, you can either purchase one from a Family Crisis Services staff member; by calling Family Crisis Services at 662-234-9929; stopping by our office - 503 Heritage Drive (Oxford); or for out of towners, you can mail your money, along with your name, address, and telephone number to PO Box 1698, Oxford, MS 38655.

By participating in this fundraiser, you will be supporting the efforts of Family Crisis Services of Northwest Mississippi, Inc.

Family Crisis Services of Northwest Mississippi, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit that serves victims of sexual assault, homicide and other violent crimes (both children and adults), provides family support services to all families in our community, and serves as a Child Advocacy Center for child abuse victims .

FCS, which began in 1992 as a Rape Crisis Center under the direction of Georgia Nix Miller, broadened its scope of services over the years as community needs surfaced and it became apparent that victims of other types of violent crime needed support and assistance as well as support services for families and the community through prevention education programs.

FCS provides a twenty-four (24) hour crisis hotline, crisis intervention, legal advocacy, counseling, information and referral, forensic interviews, and education to victims of crime, as well as many programs to create community awareness of the numerous issues concerning victims and violence, ALL FREE OF CHARGE, due to the generosity of community members.
