Hmm, should the ones running it get a freebie?

I joined an online group for infertility and soon after I joined they decided to hold monthly raffles. For 10 bucks you get a number and you can buy as many numbers as you want. They pool the money and chose a number at the end of the month and the person gets whatever money was collected.

There are two women running it and today they announced that because of all of their hard work they each get one free number.

Seems like a conflict of interest, no? I personally have no desire to join the lottery so it really doesn’t affect me but it seems a bit wrong.

No. They don't sound trustworthy to me.

No, that’s not fair at all if they win.

To me, it's not whether or not they pay for their ticket, but that they shouldn't enter at all...

Even if it's completely on the up and up, how sketchy is that going to seem if they win?

The other women all seem to be fine with it, I just don’t think I ever could

Theyve done 3 lotteries so far so if they keep this up eventually one will win. I wonder how the others will feel.
