ENTER TO WIN A NEW UNLOCKED GOOGLE PIXEL AND HELP SUPPORT S4GRU

16 October 2016 - 03:41 PM

CONTEST CLOSED!!!

LIMITED TIME PROMOTION!!!  YOU COULD POSSIBLY WIN A NEW UNLOCKED GOOGLE PIXEL IF YOU DONATE TO SUPPORT S4GRU
 
The Goal
 
The goal is to have some fun and raise some money to support S4GRU.  If we can raise enough money to cover the device by 8 PM Pacific Time on Sunday, November 6th, then we will schedule the raffle.  The contest winner can select the color.
 
This device is not limited to only Sprint.  It comes fully unlocked, so the winner can use this device on most networks in the U.S. and many outside the U.S. too.
 
The Plan
 
If we are able to raise at least as much as the device costs us plus incidental charges like taxes and shipping, we will add any additional proceeds to the S4GRU general fund.  If we can't raise enough, we will provide opportunity to refund.
 
And which model it ends up being depends on how much money we can raise.  If we raise just $750, it will be the 32GB Pixel with 5" screen.  For each additional $250 we collect beyond $750, we will give another $100 in upgrades toward upgrading to the XL or more memory.

 
The Raffle
 
Each donation to the 
PIXEL PROMO will receive a range of numbers, equating to one number for every dollar you donate.  The minimum donation to the cause is $10.  If you donate $10, you get a range of 10 numbers.  If you donate $100, you get a range of 100 numbers.  The more you donate, the greater your chances of winning.  There is no limit to the amount you can donate...in amount or frequency.  But it needs to be at least $10 per donation to the PIXEL PROMO.
 
You will receive a Private Message (or email if you are not a S4GRU member) from S4GRU giving you your numbers after your donation.  Most likely within 8-12 hours, but could take a day or two.
 
We will stop accepting donations at 8PM Pacific on Sunday, November 6th.  Any donations received after that time will not be counted toward this promotion.  I will announce when we will hold the drawing...we will do it in a live chat setting.  Date and time to be announced.  We will select a number at random using my random number generator app in my Nexus 6.  You do not need to be present in the live chat to win.

 

All money donated to the raffle will be credited to your S4GRU accumulation total and will count toward future upgrades.  If you are not currently a S4GRU Sponsor, you will be given Sponsor status for six months with the minimum $10 raffle donation.

 
To Enter
 
Go to the S4GRU PayPal Donation section by clicking on this hyperlink or by going to the S4GRU Main Forums Page and clicking the donate button in the upper right hand corner.  Enter an amount you want to donate for this promotion, minimum $10.  In the notes section, tell us your screen name and type PIXEL PROMO.  If you forget to do that in the PayPal donation, then send me a Message.  You will get a message response giving you your raffle numbers by 11 PM Pacific on 11/6/2016.  If you don't get them, message me.

 
Rules
 
S4GRU Membership is not required to enter.  S4GRU Staff Members and their families are ineligible to win.  Dollars spent on the promotion will count toward future member upgrades.  There is no cash value of the prize.  S4GRU will pay the shipping costs to the winner.  The device is unlocked and Google says it is compatible with AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile.  It likely can be used on many more networks, but S4GRU cannot guarantee operability on any network.  A SIM card purchase for the winner's preferred network may be required and is not paid by S4GRU.  This contest is void where prohibited.  Pre-scheduled automatic recurring payments to S4GRU during the contest period will not be eligible for entry in the contest.  The contest may be subject to amendment or cancellation as necessary.

Funding Short $250 in May 2016...S4GRU could go dark

23 May 2016 - 07:38 AM

We are currently $250 short from making our IP Board payment for May.  It is due on 5/24.  If we do not have the funds deposited in time, S4GRU will go offline until it's paid.

I have personally made up short falls at times in the past, but I am unable to this month.  Some of you have personally stepped up and helped in the past too.  Thank you for helping at those times.

I will take down this post once we cross the $250 needed threshold.  If the site goes offline tomorrow, you'll know we didn't make it.  I thank you in advance for your consideration.

GIFT ACCOUNT/SCHOLARSHIP ACCOUNT HOLIDAY FUND DRIVE

20 December 2015 - 08:11 PM

gallery_1_23_50165.png

 

As it is said, it is the most wonderful time of the year!  And for many S4GRU Members, it's also the leanest time of the year.  Bills and holiday presents...expensive heating bills with an early winter onset.  We have over 25,000+ members, and some of them just cannot afford to renew their memberships.  It is now pretty much a daily occurrence.

 

Some of you are aware that S4GRU maintains a gift account/scholarship account.  When a member cannot afford to renew or upgrade, we draw from this account to help others in need.  It seems like this year we have had more people down on their luck than in past years, and our scholarship account has been fully depleted.  We use this to fund not only people down on their luck, but also the many budding teenage wireless enthusiasts around our site and those who borrow a few bucks to upgrade but then pay it back.

 

If you are able to contribute to help others this time of year to maintain their S4GRU accounts, please make a contribution to the S4GRU PayPal account.  Please reference in the notes section GIFT ACCOUNT.  Once your donation is logged, you will receive a message that your donation has been added to the scholarship account.  And when your donation is used for a worthy member in the future, you will receive a message about the details for whom and how it was used.  

 

Hopefully, past donaters to the Gift/Scholarship Account will sound off below with their testimonials of how well it has worked for them to help fellow S4GRU'ers!

 

One of the great things about gift donations, is that both the giver and the recipient get credit for the donation for future Premier and Honored Premier upgrades.  It's a gift that keeps on giving!  And several of our members who have received gifts in the past have turned around and become very generous givers when their finances have turned around.  I am always amazed at how generous our members can be.

 

And truth be told, S4GRU benefits from this as well.  Not only is it the leanest time of year for our members, it's the leanest time of year for S4GRU as well.  Promotions are the only things that really keep the donations coming in the Fall and Winter  So help support your fellow S4GRU members down on their luck and S4GRU too.  Be sure to list GIFT ACCOUNT in the notes of your PayPal donation or send a message to S4GRU after completing your donation.

 

If you have given to this fund in the past, we hope we can count on you again this year!  And thank you for your past support.

 

Thank you for considering a donation to the S4GRU Gift/Scholarship Account.

 

 

NOTE:  Recurring donations during this time cannot be considered for the gift/scholarship account.
