    Hi guys,

    Your favorite spammer is back in town for this week's update.
    This is a fun and exciting week! (Yeah I didn't use busy this time, because busy is the daily routine:p) In this week's episode of OnePlus HQ, several exciting things happened. In our Department quarterly meeting, @Amanda W. and @Zach X. won some special awards, a bear came into the office, @Crystal Z. and @dsmonteiro got new haircuts. And most importantly, a new project and exciting things are coming soon.

    We got two awards for our team! Amanda is the Fashion Icon and Zach is the Fitness Enthusiast! Maybe take a wild guess of the reason they won the awards?:D


    @Lilian L also brought a bear (you thought I misspelled "beer" in the title, didn't you?) into the office for a prize giveaway just for the staff! Unlucky me, got nothing this time, I know some Raffle participants can relate... Speaking of which, @Jade D. is bringing you a new raffle tomorrow, where you can win a water bottle or a case for the OnePlus 9. Check the forums tomorrow for a chance to win these prizes!

    Okay, that's almost this week from HQ, let's get back to the forum.

    This week we got so many good posts to read and activities going on! Check the following list in case you missed anything!
    Btw, I have spotted that we have another episode of "Week In Review", seems interesting! Kudos, guys!
    Okay, that's almost everything this week, if I miss anything, I'm sure the "Week In Review" gang won't! From next week, there will be plenty of good photography content coming up! Stay tuned!

    We can't talk about this week without addressing the current pandemic in India, though. We've been following this crisis and want to do our part to help our Indian friends. Aside from procuring 400 oxygenators, we're inviting our Community to work together with us to help support those affected and frontline workers. We'll match donations made through GiveIndia equally up to INR 1 crore. Check @Pete 's post here to know more.

    Have a safe weekend guys.

    It's been a while, do ask her to drop by sometime.
    Perhaps weekly update 386 might be a good opportunity for her to say hello? ;)
    Pics or it didn't happen :rolleyes:
    I know there's nothing to post anyway xD
    Congratulations to them both on winning the awards, I can't seem to guess tho.

    Thanks for the update, Leo X. It's good to see some positivity around, my heart goes out to everyone who's been effected by the second wave of the pandemic these are tough times but as Michelle Obama says, grief and resilience live together. I trust we can turn the situation yet again. Stay safe and spread love. A huge thank you to everyone who's coming forward to help in any way possible. ❤️

    Thanks for the weekly update @Leo X.! Please leak some photos! 😅😅😅
    I have no words to describe what I feel about the very difficult situation that Indian friends are experiencing. I hope that with the @Pete thread the OnePlus community can help to make the situation better. Stay safe all.

    I'm almost done with mine, can't wait to finish and share it with you guys!
    Great to see so many people from the community making donations, I would love to see OnePlus signing that INR 1 crore 'cheque'.

    Have a great weekend all!

    Happy weekly update @Leo X. !

    Congrats @Amanda W. And @Zach X. on your staff awards!

    It wanted to know if all paws were on deck.
    *Awkward drum crash*

    As someone who had a haircut last week after not being able to after various lockdowns... It feels good (so I understand).

    Also @dsmonteiro got a haircut??
    Community has questions... 🤔😂

    Two bears? They must of heard about the OnePlus food area.

    In the words of DJ Kallid: "another one" !
    Raffle train be steaming ahead. Choo Choo!

    All my love to those in India... Keep strong OnePlus India community.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend and as always: Never Settle ( Bear necessities? Not for these bears!)
