Superbowl Squares anyone???

So - the Superbowl is coming up on February 7th in Miami. We always like to play Superbowl Squares just because it is silly and fun. I was thinking though..................we could do the same thing with Knit Witch!!! See what you think of this idea:

We have 100 squares and sell them for $5 each. If we do that then we will donate 50% of the proceeds to Charity:Water to go towards their efforts in Haiti (that would be $250 - not too shabby!). For every $5 you would get a square and you could buy up to 5 squares maybe??

Wayne and I would randomly draw the names and put them on the grid then we would randomly draw the numbers to go across the top and side of the grid (0-9 on the top and 0-9 on the side). Then, we determine the winners at the end of each quarter based on the score of the game. So, for instance, if the score was 24 to 10 we would look up the square that coincides with 4 and 0 for the respective teams and then that person is the winner for the quarter.

We would have prizes for the winner of each quarter like a $20 GC to Knit Witch, a skein of yarn, a yarn bowl, etc.

What do you guys think???? Would anyone be interested in this? I think it would be fun AND we would be raising some money for a good cause PLUS there would be some karmic balancing gifts included as well!!!

Let me know your thoughts. If there is enough interest we will get this going pretty quickly because we would need to have all the squares filled by about February 5th I think.
