Q: Can Zakaat be used to pay off a poor persons debt?

Q: Is Zakaat payable on e-bucks and voyager miles?

Q: Can a daughter give her zakaat to her widowed mother who lives of a state grant?

A certain organisation requests contribution towards a noble charity initiative. An incentive for making a contribution is an entry into a draw with the possibility of winning a lucrative prize. The organisers have made it clear that no monies from the charity would be utilised for the prizes. The prizes are sponsored independently. Is such an initiative in order?
