DeviantART Rainmeter Group needs help! Call For Donations!!!

Post by sgtevmckay »

Greetings folks.

I come to you now with a heavy heart, but with hope. Hope that we can pull our money together and help the Rainmeter Super Group at DeviantART continue.

At the current Rate it does not look like the Group will receive enough Donations to Maintain the group.

This group is made up of and supported just like the forums here, by people like you and me!!!

Bendenfild has just submitted an excellent article here:
LINK REMOVED

A call for Donations went out a few days ago here:
LINK REMOVED

The dues for the Annual renewal fee is approximately $60 USD at this time, and for a short period, after that it goes up to $120 USD

The Rainmeter Group needs to have these dues paid by May 11, 2010 in just under 96 hours (???)

I have donated all I can, and have gone a step further in as much that I have posted a photo for Print Sales at DeviantART here:
LINK REMOVED
Now that being done; it will not gain revenue in time for this renewal, but sales will benefit the Rainmeter Group in the future.

So I come to the Rainmeter Community to help support one of it's own!!!

Until May 11, 2010 at 12pm (-7 GMT) all donations made here to the donation links will be forwarded to the Rainmeter Group at DeviantART

DONATIONS CAN BE MADE AT THE FOLLOWING:

LINK REMOVED

Direct PayPal to PayPal transfers can be made at:
LINK REMOVED

Additionally
If you are a DevianArt Member and have coins, you may donate here:
LINK REMOVED

believe it or not; The Rainmeter Group at DeviantART has and does play an intricate part in the Rainmeter Community and Bendenfield and the other Group Administration ensure that he Rainmeter Group is kept linked with the Rainmeter forums here.
Every admin and member at the Rainmeter group is a Rainier too.

Now is the time to come forward.
I am asking for as many $5 USD donations, or more, as I can get in the next 72 hours.

Please help if you can

Regards
The Sarge

Update!!! :D

Ok Folks we are about half way there.

The Rainmeter Group needs approximately 7 $5 USD donations
Just seven (7) community members to help not only the Rainmeter Group, but DeviantART.
A home for Rainmeter skins, even during the dark years of Rainmeter

This would cover the Rainmeter Group for another year.

If I can get 30 Rainiers to donate just $2 USD each, it will be enough.

Places to Donate can be found in the original post.

Help with what you can :thumbsu:

I know the feeling all to well.

We do what we can, when can, with what we have.

Sometimes it is a lot, sometimes it is nothing, as the timing is bad.

I am so grateful that there were a few people that could help at this time, and hopefully the lesson is learned, and a permanent donation button can be set up, so that that last minute salvation may not be needed in the future.

For now let us celebrate what our community has done, and celebrate all those that have done what they can

Thanks to all of you three!

By the way, do you have any accounts on deviantART so we can link to you or do you prefer to stay anonymous?
