Nice puzzle today. Easy if the goal is known.

 

Spoiler: The title gives away the goal of the puzzle, to draw. Black's main threat is checkmate with Nf2++. There are a couple of moves that stop mate (e.g. Rf1), but White's position is terrible, so Black's victory is only delayed. Since mate is nearly inevitable, all of your moves must be checks. There is only one choice to start with: Qxa7. Kxa7 is forced. Rxc7+ brings in the rook. The knight remains to support it going from c7-c8 for perpetual check.
