The funds we raise from the Gun-a-Week Raffle go a long way towards getting more kids outdoors.
Your donation helps us take the kids on outdoor adventures that most of them could never dream of…pheasant hunting with former professional baseball and football players, turkey and deer hunting on Turner Enterprises Z Bar Ranch in southcentral Kansas, fishing and hiking in state parks across the area.
So many of the children we reach will never have the opportunity to even go outdoors, not to mention trips like these.
Your funds are used to pay for licenses that many of these kids can't afford. We cover the cost of processing when they harvest a deer. Our goal is to make sure the every child that wants to participate can do so. But we need your help to make that happen!
The first drawing will be the 1st Wednesday in March…but don't wait till then to get your ticket!
For $50, we’ll send you a ticket that will be entered in every weekly drawing for 52 weeks!
That’s 52 chances to win a gun…less than $1/chance! But we’re going to make it even better! After we have drawn all 52 weekly winners, we’re going to give everyone who didn’t win another chance…so you get 53 chances to win. And to sweeten the pot a bit more, we’re going to take all 52 winners, put their names in the hat and draw again, guaranteeing that at least one lucky person will win 2 guns!
The average retail value of these guns will be approximately $800
And to make it even better, for $100, we’ll give you 3 tickets!

Folks in the outdoor community recognize that the one-time events don’t cut it as far as getting kids to become a hunter (I think the same probably applies to them becoming shooters or fishermen).
Again, this is where our program makes a difference.
Recruiting mentors who spend at least a couple of days/month involved in outdoor activities with a kid is what it takes, especially with kids who aren't connected to nature.
Again, your generous support is what provides Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors with the resources we need to give these kids the opportunity to get outdoors.
We hope you will step up with a generous donation to keep the ball rolling!
About Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors:
Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors is a Wichita, Kansas-based national organization dedicated to providing children with mentors who will share with them the experiences of traditional outdoor activities. The heart of the group’s mission is to give children opportunities to connect with nature that they more than likely won’t have without a mentor showing them the way. Partnering with organizations with like-minded conservation and youth participation efforts like Big Brothers Big Sisters, Pheasants Forever, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Delta Waterfowl, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the National Wild Turkey Federation, among others, volunteers with a passion for the outdoors can give a child the chance to go fish, hunt, or simply spend time in the fields with a caring adult.
