Times Picayune story about it, Saints announced it this morning, but they say the link didn't exist yet Hope the one above turns out to be right...

Re: Saints Lottry to help oil spill victims

I thought BP would pay all of their lost income and if they don't Obama said he would kick some ass. That made me feel much better about the situation. CRR if you can find a better link let us know.

Re: Saints Lottry to help oil spill victims

I check several companies that rank charity groups and none of them showed anything for celebrities for charity. Maybe I typed something in wrong but I could not even find them on their list of charities. I wonder whats up with that.

Re: Saints Lottry to help oil spill victims

Guys, this has got to be the worst planning for an official announcement ever. Here is the New Orleans Saints official website announcement, and everything looks legit, but wow, it seems bogus when you poke into it...
Saints Gulf Coast Renewal Raffle Announced

you can also go to nfl.com, pick the saints home page, and they have a link to this page.

Re: Saints Lottry to help oil spill victims

I don't donate to any charity if I cannot look them up on any of the charity rating guides. I don't care if its $1 or $100 I want to know how much of the money actually makes it to the cause.

Like I said, it looks legit to me - the link left off the www, and that causes the untrusted connection error - HOWEVER, for an NFL team project it was very poorly put together and they should have used a respected charity organization like you say, rather than this one.
