HOUSTON (CNN) — During the third Democratic Presidential Debate, Andrew Yang announced he will raffle off 10 “Freedom Dividends” that will be financed by campaign donations from supporters.

“My campaign will now get a freedom dividend of $1,000 a month for an entire year to 10 American families,” Yang said.

His campaign says Yang is already personally financing the Freedom Dividends for three people in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Florida.

The businessman and Schenectady-native claims in a news release that the giveaway is “fully complaint with all FEC regulations” and says people can enter the raffle on Yang’s campaign website.
