Many people have emailed The AIMN to ask if we will be introducing a ‘subscriber pays’ system.
The short answer to that is “NO”.
The AIMN isn’t a profit-making venture – it’s a forum for citizen journalists where none other exists. To us, it’s the message that is important.
However, like everything in this world there are costs, but we aim to cover these from the revenue that the ads bring in and from crowd funding (donations). Since making our donation buttons more visible we have been delighted with the response.
To show our appreciation we are giving away an iPad Air 2 to one lucky reader.
This is how it works:
Readers receive one ticket in the draw for every $5 donated in a single donation. A donation of $10 will receive two tickets, and so on.
Readers who have set up regular monthly donations will receive five tickets for every $5 donation.
We will run this promotion until 10pm, March 27 2015. The winner will be announced the next day.
The promotion is not open to new donors only – if you have already donated to The AIMN your tickets are already in the barrel!
The details of the prize are:
- iPad Air 2 WiFi Cellular
- Colour: black
But wait, there’s more!
We’re giving away a 2nd prize too.
- iPad Mini WiFi Cellular
- Colour: white
There’s only one rule: you can’t win both. The winner of the 1st prize will not be eligible to win the 2nd prize too.
The promotion is open to everybody who has provided a financial donation to The AIMN and who provides a donation before 10pm, March 27.
Reader, commenters, regular authors and guest authors can enter. Only the site owners are ineligible to enter.
Never owned an iPad? You can read just how awesome they are here.
But remember . . . The promotion closes in 25 days!
