GIFT ACCOUNT/SCHOLARSHIP ACCOUNT


S4GRU

Recommended Posts

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 22,000+ members, and some of them just cannot afford to renew their memberships.  It is now becoming almost 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 normal, and our scholarship account is nearly 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 and keep receiving timely update information, 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.

 

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 October - January.  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.

 

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

We had a very generous donater this evening already fund half of the goal.  We should be able to wrap this up quickly if you all are able to fund the other half.  I am still stunned by the generosity of our members and staff.

 

We prefer to get gift donations in $20-$25 increments.  That way they are easy to meter out to beneficiaries.  But we will take any amount, if you are not able to do the full $20.  Because we can lump a few gift donations together, if needed.  Thanks again!

Any more givers out there?  We are close to finishing this up.  A big thank you to those who donated already.  And a thanks in advance for those of you considering a donation.

Enrollment in the Jelly of the Month Club?  The gift that keeps on giving the whole year?

I really appreciate all that have given so far.  I'm hoping we can get the last of the gift donations tonight and I can close up this thread.  If you thought about giving toward this worthy goal, let today be the day!  Thank you for considering a donation to the gift/scholarship account.

Thank you to all who have donated to the gift account.  We have already been using it.  Some of you have already received noticies how your donation has been used.  Thank you for your generous giving.  I would like to re-raise the amount we have donated so far and the amount we were short before interest in donating in the gift account died suddenly earlier this week.


 


If we can raise another $150 - $200, I will close this thread for the season.  Please help donate to support your fellow members in need and S4GRU.


 


Remember, when you donate to the Gift/Scholarship Account, both you and the recipient get credit towards upgrades.  Click here to donate:  https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=CED5R2HV4HMBY

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
