Maybe not viable (in any profit/business model) but it would surely cease the endless whining about fees and hopefully encourage more participants giving entrants the knowledge their money was also being spent for a purpose that transcended that of simply a competition.
The business model of the National Lottery puts a little something back into the community (even if I do not generally buy tickets as priorities are relevant to situation
) In fact there are a few business projects that assist communities in unfortunate circumstance beyond the wealthier nations overcoming disasters. It's a nice idea Jim; and I also hope coverage of the situation in Japan is ever mindful of the hearts and minds suffering in their personal emotional turmoil such disaster in events undoubtedly unfolds.
Lets hope that the situation in Japan is swiftly back on an even keel.
and in a PS. re POTY - Just my opinion; As it courts on an International level it ought to remain free with the option to donate to the funding of costs, there in taking into account participants in geograhically based areas of hardship in relationship to the strength of the British pound..
