Hello, LBIer's. Last week we started the LeoFinance donation drive for "Help a CUB" and donations have been flying in all week. Really great turnout and much support has been offered which is fantastic to see. Users have been donating up until the final day, the full list below.
What is Help a CUB
It is the Leo community pooling together to help a fellow Leo community member that does not have access to a PC/laptop for whatever reasons. There are alot of CUBs on here that are being held back by the fact their whole HIVE/LEO experience is through a mobile phone and very limited to being creative, researching or the content they can produce. We have decided that together through small donations to help out a fellow CUB and help them get to the next level. There are lots of deserving folks out there, sadly we only have 1 PC to give away but hey, it's a start.
We hit our target of $500
In total, we raised $608 and there's is 15 LEO in the lbi-funding wallet that needs to be converted. The balance of $608 is being held in the LBI BSC wallet in a stable and when the time comes, I'll withdraw to Binance and then to my crypto card to be spent. Now that the main donation drive is finished and we have collected enough money, it's time to "Help a CUB". Really overwhelmed by the support shown from the LeoFinance community, to be honest, I thought the fundraising part would have required another post to hit the target but we've passed our target and alot of people have been very generous and giving.
In total, we have around $620. This means that we have $120 extra and this will either be used for putting toward "Help a CUB" 2 if we ever do it are something else. We'll find a use for it and it will go toward helping out another CUB in some way for another. That decision is for another day.
We're funded, a massive shout out to everyone in the table below. Every single person has gone out of their way to send over some funds and done something positive for the community. Many hands make light work.

Who can apply for "Help a CUB"
So we need a few ground conditions in stone to divide those who can and can not apply. There are reasons for each condition but these are pretty standard and in line, with the sort of CUB we wanna help.
- You do not own a PC/laptop
- You have been on LeoFinance for at least 8 weeks
- Your HIVE & LEO wallets (liquid+staked) total under $1000
- Your HIVE rep is under 60
We do have to take users words on whether they already own a PC are not but we can track to see how long they have been on the blockchain and check HIVE and Hive-engine wallet transactions.
How to apply
If you meet the conditions above, you are free to apply.
If your creativity is being held back because you dont have access to a PC and you think you can add value to the Leo community, we would love to hear from you. It's very simple to apply and it will only require your time to prepare and upload a detailed post explaining your situation and how having a PC are laptop would improve it. We're not looking for your life story but a little bout yourself would be awesome to help build a mental character for readers. Explain what you plan to do with the PC, maybe you want to start making videos, produce artwork, learn to code (and then work for LBI😁) or just make better content for the community. If you wanna start making videos, link some of your old videos to the post so people can see, if you wanna release a small project, include your plan. The more detail the better.
Below are few conditions to follow. This helps us to track the posts of CUBs applying and ensure the quality of those posts meet some minimum standards.
- Use this posts thumbnail (top picture) as the thumbnail of your post
- Your post must contain at least 800 words with no max limit
- Cover at minimum these 3 things.
2/ How getting a PC will help
3/What value you can add to the Leo community
- use #helpacub as 1st tag
- Upload from Leofinance.io
We will collect applications for 2 weeks
We have a 5-week time frame to complete this and we are on week 2 now. Starting from this post is uploaded until the stroke of midnight on the 28th(GMT), CUBs can apply.
I will look for new posts uploaded to the #helpacub tag at least once every day and then rehive those posts from the @lbi-token account for better exposure so be prepared for 30-50+ people reading your post.
How much will the winner get?
$500 that be spent anywhere that accepts MasterCard. I'd prefer it not to be local to the winner for fear of returning for cash are store credit. Amazon, eBay, etc are ideal.
What PC/laptop can be won?
Up to the winner. The winner can pick whatever PC or laptop they want, tell me what it is and we'll pay for it and ship it directly to the winner.
I am aware that this giveaway could be abused. This giveaway is meant for people that dont have regular access to a PC or laptop. We have no way to prove whether users applying do are dont so I will say this. If anyone applying is caught or found out to be abusing this giveaway, well... I have a very particular set of skills and account keys, skills and keys I have acquired over a very long crypto career. Skills and downvoting power that make me a nightmare for people like you. Abusers if proven will feel the power of the Leo community fall on top of them (i assume).
Rehiving this post is showing love
