    The Focus RS Dream Giveaway, a nationwide drawing sponsored by New Beginning Children's Homes–a charitable organization, has officially launched! The winner of this enthusiast-inspired prize package will take home an all-wheel drive Ford Focus RS with $20,000 of performance enhancements plus $10,000 towards the prize taxes!

    The Grand Prize: The Ford Focus RS is the only American car with a drift mode and as much firepower as a Ford Mustang GT or a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Be prepared. You'll feel the power with its souped-up, turbo 2.3L engine producing a ground-shaking 450hp! This hot-hatch road warrior features custom paintwork in its "born with" Nitro Blue color paired with a sporty black interior. Other performance features include Brembo four-wheel disc brakes, power Recaro seats, factory wing spoiler, six-speed manual transmission, 19x8.5-inch Advan Racing RSII wheels, Watson Racing four-point bolt-in roll bar, Schroth Racing harnesses, Ford Focus RS accessport V3 performance tuner, KW V3 coilover suspension kit, custom dyno tune and much more!

    I'm all for charitable causes but this is one I've yet to hear about. Looking for feedback from the forum members.

    Their federal ID doesn't show up on the IRS lookup tool either.
    Frost White RS is best RS.

    Good job, I did a basic search for BBB and nothing popped up. I pulled this initial link from a questionable source and noticed there was searches for SCAM related to this offering. Want to get the word out to those that were considering this opportunity. LOL, has no complaints since it no longer exists.

    This is another red-flag. A good charity will be really transparent about percentages and costs. They will try to use the funds directly instead of "providing grants" to other charities

    Is always the free entry method if you disagree with the causes. LOL

    Free Entry Method. To receive an entry code without donating, mail one self-addressed postage paid envelope to NBCH P.O. Box 1388 Cedar Rapids, IA 52406-1388, (except Vermont residents are not required to affix return postage). Limit one entry code request per outer envelope. One entry code will be returned in the envelope provided to each mail-in request that complies with these requirements. Upon receipt of the entry code, Entrant must register the entry code into the particular drawing. Entry code can be registered either by going to the specified website or calling toll-free 1-844-235-9936. All requests for entry code must be postmarked no later than 11:59 PM EST on ending date of drawing referenced in paragraph 3 and received no later than 7 days following ending date. All entry codes must be entered by 14 days following ending date. No service charge or fee will apply to this method of entry. Mail for Free Entry Method to any other address will be disqualified and destroyed

    Think these are the same tools who advertise during some of the automotive related TV shows/auctions (Barrett Jackson/Mecum), featuring new/old muscle cars (ie - raffle tickets for an old mustang/new mustang or an old vette/new vette, etc).
