Please plus this post and share it with as many as you can. The more people see it the more chance the auction has to increase. Special shout out to the team at +CyanogenMod
for creating a post about this. I believe it truly helped the most.
_Thanks to the community reaching out for a common goal this auction has reached a greater height than I imagined. I think more than any of us did. It had humble beginnings. With the help of Android community supporters, developers, websites and all around good people it has expanded to a much larger audience. I appreciate all of you that have contributed in any form you could(can). Ryan has a much better chance of survival thanks to all of you. Take that with you. You have all taken this opportunity to be unselfish and pay it forward. Ryan and his family is sure not to forget every one of you.
I have to adjust this auction to fit her needs. Here is what she needs and what I am asking of you.
If you want to bid please do. Add your bid to the comments here. Winner takes all!
This part is very important::
If you are a themer, developer, icon pack creator or have something to offer or donate that can be purchased from the Play Store,
I now ask that instead of offering them up for free to the winning bidder that you continue to sell them in the store. Promote the Hell out of them. Get as much traffic to your themes as possible. BUT Instead of keeping the funds from the sales, forward what you sell to Ryan. Send the money to his Paypal where there is no percentage taken out. Add a note to why you are sending that money. This, as I see it is the best way to help Ryan and his family. You can do this until the auction is over or however long you would like.
If you have a physical item you would like to donate that you believe will increase the value of the bid please let me know. I will continue to update the post as long as new items are added for the winning bidder._
I have a favor to ask all my feral ghouls out there.
My friend +Ryan Scott
(also known as @Chiefzreloaded) and his family need help. He has Necrotizing Fasciitis which is a flesh eating disease. He has it bad. I am not talking about the cool zombie kind either. He is a stand up dude and actually works with the +CyanogenMod
team. For how much longer I do not know. He is DYING
. He has nothing left to make money with. His whole family is suffering from the hospital bills and their own bouts of illness. I want to help but I do not have the money he needs. I do however have the ability to sell a piece of artwork of mine. That's where you ghouls come in.
This here is my #UndeadAndoid
. I made him for the +BigAndroidBBQ
in 2012. I have only one left. You are looking at it.
Here's my goal: To hopefully sell him at a good price so Ryan and his family can use that money to pay for something, anything. I will do a G+ auction essentially. Your pledge will go directly in the comment section of this original post. Once The highest donate-er is chosen I will contact that person with a paypal address to forward the payment to.
I will not see any of this money. I will pay shipping. The only people getting this money will be Ryan's family. Once payment is received I will mail out my Undead Android to the top donation. Please only serious pledges. The higher the bids get the more items I will add.
Bidding is up to a gorgeous $1666 as of 11:00AM 3/6/13! Unbelievable!
I will now be building something specific to the winning bidder. Another One of a Kind item.
I have added AndroidSPIN! to the mix with their donations. They are great supporters of the community and have done well to get the auction out to more people. They are donating items to drive up the bid and have been scouring the internets for more potential donaters.
