Default Giveaway for Good Samaritans

Please Login to Remove!

Calling all members!

We have a prominent member here at BBF that needs your help. They are in serious risk of having their family home foreclosed, and I do not want to see that happen. As many of you know from experience, we all fall on hard times, and just need a little help to get back on our feet. At this time, the member in need wishes to remain anonymous. I know that I for one have been personally helped by this member, and I know many of you have been as well. Our goal is to raise at least $4,000 to prevent this member from losing the home they provide for their family that they have worked so hard to make their own. While this might seem like a lot of money, if we all pitch in any little that we can, it wont take long to save this American Dream.

I know there have been many generous donations recently, but this time when you give you have a chance to receive as well. Thanks to Horizon Wireless, OtterBox , Troy Brown Professional Consulting, BEIKS, and Themes From IL we will enter everyone who donates into a giveaway.

Currently our prizes include:
2x Replacement Trackball
2x 4GB SanDisk MicroSD Cards
2x Unlock Codes
2x 1 Hour Computer/Networking Consulting
1 Free Custom Designed Theme, and all files (including source file and icon sets)
3x OtterBox Case of choice from BlackBerry Cases // OtterBox.com
1x Pair of Ray-Ban Sunglasses, model 3193 004/82 Genmetal grey, Polarized, with soft case and cloth (image attached)
10x Full License for Noah Bible Viewer
10x BlackBerry Bold Skin in Black

And for anyone who donates $50 or more, you will also be entered to win:

A Brand New Toshiba Satellite Notebook w/15" Display and DVD/CD Burner!

I am sure this list of prizes will grow, but please don't wait. The sooner we can raise the money the better, but the deadline is midnight, September 7th, EST.

Once you have made your donation, please PM me with your email address and confirmation # for verification.

I would like to thank Horizon Wireless, Troydbrown, ezrunner, DacyJ, and BCollins521 for all of their help. Now lets all pull together to help save a very good resource from tragedy!

I'm trying to raise some more $ to donate. As much as I'd like that laptop, helping someone in need is top priority.

Glad to have an opportunity to help someone. Many years ago we were in the same position and were blessed to have friends to help us through the hard times. You never know when you may be the one who needs help. May God Bless them and all those who are giving. PM coming.....

We've had a great first day response so far. We are already over $300, but we have a long way to go. Even if you can only donate a few bucks it will be a big help in the long run!
