A ticket for freedom

Jessie Wells on her wedding dayIt’s always great when you hear about ‘real’ people winning competitions and doubly terrific when you know their win is helping others.  Last year, Jessie Wells of Queensland sold a book of raffle tickets for Amnesty International, and she won the Ticket Seller’s Prize – an Intrepid trip to Nepal.

“We think it’s great to have a prize draw for people who help out by selling tickets. We never imagined we would win, so it was a huge surprise and we feel so fortunate that our small contribution has led to this”, writes Jessie and new husband Paul.  “Amnesty International has been an important part of our lives since we were teenagers, and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate our wedding by taking this incredible trip to the mountains and villages of Nepal. Thank you Amnesty International and Intrepid Travel for giving us this once in a lifetime opportunity, at the perfect time!”

Now imagine winning a holiday in beautiful Corsica in the Mediterranean – the spectacular location of the first three stages of the 2013 Tour de France.  Simply sell 20 tickets in Amnesty International’s Freedom Raffle 2013, to family, friends or colleagues and you will be automatically entered in the exclusive Ticket Seller’s draw – to win Intrepid Travel’s Mountains and Villages of Corsica. This 8 day tour for two people explores rustic mountain villages, lush valleys and chestnut forests.  It includes return economy airfares from the winner’s closest Australian capital city. The ticket sales are easy – there are great prizes and it’s a great cause – with your support helping people who are tortured, abused and denied their human rights.

For over 50 years, Amnesty International has protected individuals around the world wherever freedom, truth and justice are denied.  They shine a light into dark corners, exposing human rights abuses and campaign for human rights to be upheld.  In the last year, Amnesty’s work has brought freedom to hundreds of vulnerable people, and helped to at last achieve an international Arms Trade Treaty.
