Company reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Campaign, Donation, or the Services at any time for any reason without liability.

Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services.

By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns.

All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form.

While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions.

We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine

DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns).

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5.

Obituary

Revelation 21:4

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."

“I’ll buy ice cream for whoever can memorize 10 precious promises from the Bible.” Br. Sydney Allen loved the Lord and the Scriptures, he wanted to share that love and knowledge with everyone, especially the youth of his church. Not a day would go by without him sitting with a book in his hand, be it the Bible, one of the Volumes, or a Dawn publication. He was very proud that his family was in the Bible Answers television series in which some episodes were recorded in his home and backyard. The Bible Answers series are still being played today.

Sydney would love to witness everyone he met. Even during his first stroke 2 years ago in the same rehab facility, he would witness the various therapists giving them tracks and Volumes to read. When his daughter Christiana went to rehab for training and to collect his belongings she saw a copy of the Volume and turned to the Occupational Therapist and said," I have to take dad's book with me". The Occupational Therapist stated: "no that's mine your dad gave it to me 2 years ago to read and I was reading it to him by his bedside. He even tried to hold the book with his left hand" she told Christiana. Sydney had made an impact on this therapist's life and it was a blessing for her to have it, she said. Sydney worked very hard to get better after his first stroke and became independent in walking, talking, swallowing, writing, dressing, and reading the Scriptures for hours every day.

Sydney Martin Allen was born to parents Ruth Allen and John Allen on January 18, 1928, in Worcester, Massachusetts. He was the eldest of three siblings. From a young age, Sydney worked hard to help support his family since his father suffered from shell-shock, having served in World War I. His mother was an ardent Bible Student and helped instill in him his love for the Lord. His mother Ruth Allen made Sydney read 10 pages a day of the Volumes of Pastor Russell until he married.

Fifty-Two years ago Sydney married Jutta Ulrich, the love of his life, on July 14, 1968, at the United Nations Church in New York City. They met through the Bible Students and knew each other for 7 years before they married. On their honeymoon in Florida, they went for a beach stroll and found a dirty, many-colored, long candle on a beach. Sydney jokingly said that they should keep it and light it once every year on their anniversary, and they did.

Sr. Jutta was an opera singer from Germany, Sydney was her biggest fan, often recording her many concerts. Every time Jutta would sing Carmen he was so proud to catch the rose from Jutta at the end of the song.

Their 50th Anniversary was celebrated with many friends and family who had attended their wedding. They also celebrated 50 beautiful years on a cruise to the Caribbean with their daughter Christiana, her husband Tim, and their Grandchildren Kristian, Tyler, Kyle, Timmy, and Wendy (Tyler's soon to be fiance). Even though Sydney could walk we wanted him to use a wheelchair due to the long walks on the cruise ship to get from one place to another. Sydney even managed to climb 49 stairs to the top of the entrance to the Hato Caves in Curacao.

Sydney worked as a lithographer at G.S. Lithography and did the colors for many magazine covers, such as Sports Illustrated, Vogue, and Time. He would often come home with blank shiny magazine paper for his daughters to draw on. After retiring from G.S. Lithographers in 1990, he moved to Lubeck, Germany with Jutta. They would return every year in the springtime to visit their daughter Christiana, Tim, and his grandchildren. He enjoyed his 5:30 am first swim of the day with Jutta and always said the pool was the best investment he ever made. They lived there for a little over 25 years before returning to Rutherford, N.J. to live with their daughter Christiana, Tim, and the Children.

Sydney instilled the love of the Lord in his children. When his daughter Christiana gave herself to the Lord on the July 31st, 1984 General Convention Sydney Baptized Christiana. The Hymn that was played as Christiana was raised was #215 vs 4. May the Lord watch over you and bless you in your walk with him.

Sydney also did the marriage ceremony for Christiana to her husband Timothy, which she felt honored and blessed by.

He had two daughters, Christiana Allen Hunt and Lilia Murray, both of whom he lovingly called “pumpkin.” Saturday mornings often took Sydney to the United Nations School with his daughters, where they all learned German. Afterward, he would take the family horseback riding or skiing. Once in Germany, he and Jutta discovered rowing and became long-time members of the Lubeck Rowing Club. He developed a love of carving beautiful scriptures out of soapstone with a group of people who were friends in Germany who called themselves the Speckstein group.

For many years, Sydney was a deacon then became an elder in his church, The New York Bible Student Association. He enjoyed studying with Br. Frye, while attending

and speaking at various weekly Bible studies along with many conventions, nationally and internationally, where he could fellowship with the brethren. He was a devoted Christian who tried to live a consecrated life. He loved having a big bowl of vanilla ice cream at night. He also liked sneaking spoonfuls of peanut butter or having a Pina Colada on special occasions. A day never went by without him gargling with Listerine. If you gave him a backrub or scratched his back he would say, "I will give you a dime if you do that all day long!" He loved sharing jokes and poems he had memorized over the years. And he loved watching old war movies and mystery who-done-its. However, he most enjoyed reading and studying the Lord’s Word. His favorite hymn was #208 “Thy Grace Impart.”

After suffering a major stroke on January 1, 2021, he had two weeks of declining health. Sydney was completely paralyzed on his right side, blind in his right eye, and had a partial vision in his left eye. He lost his speech but his mind was clear. When it became apparent that Sydney couldn't handle rehab his daughter Christiana, Lilia, and wife Jutta, and Grandchildren were able to Facetime him in rehab. When Christiana asked if he wanted to give up trying to get better and come home he verbally said "home." His wife Jutta asked if he wanted to be home with the Lord and he said," home, home, home". The family tried rehab to see if he could get a little better, unfortunately, even though his mind was willing the body was too weak.

Unfortunately, about 3 hours later Christiana got a call from the doctor saying that Sydney's breathing was extremely labored and that he would need to go to a hospital for intubation because his end was coming that night.

Christiana and Jutta knew that Sydney wanted to be with his heavenly Father and not hooked up to machines. Christiana asked if there was any way that her mom and she could just come and say goodbye since they both were tested negative for covid. The doctor said it was against protocol but would ask his boss. The Lord overruled and only they were allowed to see him. Christiana took her son’s I-phone so that Family and friends could call Sydney and say goodbye. Sydney was still aware at this time but was having extreme difficulty in breathing. The Lord blessed Sydney with his loving care and Sydney lived through the night. His daughter Christiana quickly brought Sydney home on Hospice to be comforted by family, friends, and his dogs.

Christiana breeds Mini and Micro Mini Bernedoodles which are therapy/comfort dogs for children and adults with disabilities, the elderly, and the military with PTSD. Sydney would open his eyes and smile and pet the dogs that sat next to him on his bedside. The dogs would kiss him and lick his hand. All the dogs would sit in front of the gate put up in front of Sydney's bed and keep watch over him. Some would jump the fence just to be near him or lay with him in bed. This brought Sydney comfort, peace, and happiness that was wonderful to see.

Alice Passios was a great blessing for the family and to Sydney. She came several times every day Sydney was home helping Christiana with the turning, positioning, suctioning, and many more medical applications that are too numerous to list. Christiana and the family are so grateful. Alice and George Passios also comforted them especially when things got especially hard for Christiana to bear.

Sydney needed 24/7 care and Christiana would lay in a recliner all night next to her dad, hold his hand, recite the promises to him and sing hymns while trying to do whatever she could medically to keep him comfortable. Sr. Jutta would sing his favorite hymns, as soon as he heard her voice he would open his eyes, look at her, and smile.

On Friday, January 15th the family celebrated Sydney's 93rd birthday. Which was to be January 18. Sydney had not regained consciousness after 5:30 am that morning. Jutta, Christiana, and Tim, grandchildren Tyler Allen with Wendy, Timothy, and Kyle, His daughter Lilia and grandson Tristan were able to be there via. FaceTime, as well as Grandson Kristian, Br. George and Alice, Br. Alex and Eva Loutsky were there also to gather around Br. Sydney one last time to celebrate his life, singing hymns reciting scripture, and say Good-By. Saturday, January 16, 5:15 PM Br. Sydney died peacefully with his family by his side.

In addition to his wife, Jutta, Sydney is survived by his daughters Christiana Allen-Hunt and Lilia Murray, his grandchildren Kristian Allen, Tyler Allen, Kyle Hunt, Timmy Hunt, and Tristan Murray, a great-grandson, Jackson, and his brother, Br. Larry Allen. (Conn)

And safe beneath thy sheltering wing,

My sweetest thought henceforth shall be,

That all I want I find in thee.

“Be thou faithful unto death and I will give you a crown life”

Looking at the pictures of Sydney my heart was warmed by the love and joy they reflected as he spent his life surrounded by his family and friends, enjoying the wonderful and exciting journey of life. I only had the privilege of knowing Sydney in the latter part of his life, but the pictures evidence God’s rich blessing throughout his entire life.
I met Sydney and Jutta in Germany at a Bible Study Convention in Freiburg in 2002, where I first heard Jutta singing in German “Take my hand, my Lord”. Later, as I moved to the US in 2005, I fellowshipped with Sydney and Jutta at the NY Bible Students Church in Rutherford NJ on Sundays. Sydney’s faith was very strong; in all discussions he liked to point toward God, always underlining the fear of God as the foundation of a life that is pleasing to God and blessed by Him.
Alex and I enjoyed Sydney’s and his family’s warm hospitality many times during the last decade. Alex’s relationship with Sydney and the family goes back to the time they were meeting for Bible studies at the UN in NYC. I have often heard many memories made during those years when personal relationships have been forged.
Our heartfelt sympathy with the family in the face of this loss. May you all find strength in God’s promises and comfort in precious memories.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Srs. Jutta, Christiana, Lilia and their families.
I have many happy memories of dear Sydney which began when Sr. Jutta asked if I would play the organ for their wedding. It was an honor for me. We would meet through many years at conventions and attended the NY class together. Sydney would always have something spiritual to say as we greeted each other. Charlie and I enjoyed his discourses through the years also.
Sometimes Sydney and I would reminisce back to Boston and the brethren whom we both knew there. They were great memories, and now we will have more beautiful memories of our Dear Br. Sydney
We will greatly miss him.

For two days I’ve been dreaming of your family and I didn’t know why so I decided to do an internet search and I was devastated to see this come up in my search. Your dad was one of the neatest guys I ever met. I’ll never forget the first time he made me a cup of coffee and asked if I wanted sweetener in it and I said “yes”. He then proceeded to put a giant dollop of honey into my coffee. I hated honey, but.....the coffee was great. From then on, I always chose honey to sweeten my coffee every time it was available. I’ll always remember his warm smile and his huge heart. I wish I could be there for you guys. You girls were like sisters to me and I’m ashamed we’ve hadn’t kept in touch. Sending all my love to one of the greatest families I know.
