Charity Pin Raffle for RAICES Texas
Hello pin and music collectors!
It's time to take action, so, we are raffling off a set of 22 rare 'misprint' enamel pins to raise money for RAICES Texas, a great organization that helps separated families, detained families, unaccompanied minors, and others who are seeking asylum in the United States.
Turning a Negative into a Positive
Earlier this year, I hired a company to make 300 pins featuring our original music themed designs. Long story short, the company produced very poor quality pin samples and offered very poor customer service. In the end, I canceled the order and lost over $300 that I’ll never get back.
Thanks to our growing platform as a new pin company, we are fortunate enough to be able to turn this negative experience into a positive one. With your help, we would like to raise $300 in donations to RAICES Texas. Let's turn our financial loss into a moral and ethical gain for a great cause!

More About the Grand Prize
The 22 pin set features a mixture of hard enamel and soft enamel pins in an assortment of 3 music themed designs (cassette tape, compact disc, and vinyl record). As mentioned, the overall quality on these pins are very poor, however, there are a few that are in OK condition.
We later produced these designs in a larger size with slightly changed details (with a much better company!) but these samples are the only copies that exist in this size and in this exact iteration of the design. In that way, they are very unique and rare defects that you can’t find anywhere else.
If you win the pins, you can wear them, give them to friends, or destroy them in a safe, fun way that Mint Plus Plus claims no liability over. :-)
