We are Aider Les Autres (Help the Others), a non-profit association registered in France (loi 1901).
The clue is in our name: Help the Others.
We came up with this innovative way to raise money for a good cause.
We have an authorisation from the Police Prefecture of Paris. It is legal in France and in most other countries. Some countries restrict or prohibit online lotteries. You have to make sure it is legal where you live.
No. We are a non-profit association. We will recover our costs, mainly the purchase of the Picasso. Our accounts are audited by the Police Prefecture of Paris.
We will recover our costs, mainly the purchase of the Picasso. Everything else goes to CARE International who will rehabilitate schools and provide them with clean water infrastructure in Cameroun, Madagascar and Morocco. More info here. Our accounts are audited by the Police Prefecture of Paris.
Seriously? It has a certificate of authenticity and is valued at 1 million euros.
We are buying it from David Nahmad, a collector.
You should watch live the draw on 6 January 2020. We will also notify you by email and by registered mail to your billing address. The winning ticket number will be posted on our website.
No worries. Get in touch and we will resend the email. In any case, we have all the information on our secure servers. You do not need the email or the ticket to claim the Picasso.
The draw is done under the supervision of a Court Officer.
We will ask you for a copy of a government issued photo ID, and you tell us where you want your Picasso delivered.
We will pay for shipping, insurance, VAT, customs, etc. for up to 50% of the value of the painting. This covers the vast majority of countries. Any cost above that is yours.
Some countries tax raffle winnings, some don't. Your personal taxes are your responsibility.
