    I normally don't do things like this, however the Grand Prize is a ticket into low Earth orbit with XCOR Aerospace.

    The Urgency Network, a nonprofit startup, is behind several goodwill campaigns that use their connections to celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Paul McCartney, Thom Yorke and Richard Branson to offer donors unique experiences.
    The model of Urgency Network, founded by Donald Eley and Brandon Deroche, is pretty simple: Donate $10 to a good cause, and you'll be entered into a raffle to win an amazing prize. Each $10 donation gets you another ticket, and after the first donation, donors can also volunteer for a variety of tasks to earn additional tickets.
    And now, thanks to the “Ticket to Rise” campaign, which benefits Oxfam, PETA and the Voice Project, that $10 donation could land you a spot on an XCOR flight, one of two new ventures that will launch commercial space flights beginning in 2015.

    How $10 could get you a ticket to outer space
