A bonsai convention is usually a well-planned event, but you never know what can happen on the road.

Whenever people gather bonsai, besides learning is not always fun. This is one of those stories.

Although there are fees, it can sometimes be difficult to meet all the expenses of hotel, speakers, plant material and construction materials.

One of the ways companies help meet these expenses is asking for donations bonsai related and them equipped for raffles.

Items such as trees, tools, books, bonsai pots and sometimes artworks provide additional revenue for the event.

Tables are often set up near the registration area, donations are placed with coffee cans next to them. You buy your tickets, place them on the topic of your choice and hope for the best.
