Nonprofit Idea

I have an idea for a nonprofit business but I'm not sure if it is legal or allowed. I want to start a website that does daily (or weekly or even monthly until it gets popular) "50/50" raffles, where part of the profit goes to an individual winner, and part goes to the charity of the day (ranging from AWAP groups to Red Cross and all in between). As the owner, I would only get money by selling ad space on my site. PayPal would be the only mode of payment.  I think this website would be a great idea because it would help individuals and charities facing our current economy. We would be helping the world. I'm having a difficult time deciding what to do next, or how to get this started. Any ideas or help would be great.
