I need to do a lot of re-formatting and if anyone has any ideas for me, please let me know - both for the re-do's and any Grant ideas... promotions, fund-raisers, etc. I would like to have an art auction like I did before but I am short of contacts these days.

Comments: I'm asking for this grant because I'd like to keep this contest running as long as possible and maybe even increasing the prize money for the contestants. I personally am raising money on my own as well in order to fund the contest. It would be a great help if I could get another source of gold instead of my own.
Good grief I am so sorry it took me so long to answer, I had put all my Gaian duties on the back burner and I see that was a mistake to just not even check in.
