Interested in launching a charity-related for-profit based on the premise that workers should be paid hard cash (BTC) instead of trinkets to help justify their time spent. The idea focuses on creating BTC jobs able to be done at home, opening up charities to indirect "hands-free" BTC adoption, and maintaining or improving charities' general perception through ethical and polite advertisement (no cold calls). We'd charge charities dramatically less than what most (if not, all) spend on in-house fundraising. Willing to divulge more to someone relevant and do have some documentation. I've tried a couple regional charities, but I don't think anyone's taking me seriously, possibly attributable (aside having absolutely no data from previous charities) to being told there would be interest of an international community of geeks donating to a relatively small and local charity. I need a charity willing to be the first in a test run. With hard numbers, I think moving forward will be a breeze, but we have to get over the initial hump. I have a primarily-RoR developer on standby, ready to work on the back-end, but unwilling to put time into something unless there's an interested charity.

I need the charities to be relatively local to Southern-central MI (in the US) since I'd really like a representative (ATM, only I am willing) to visit with a representative of the charity before anything moves forward as partnership. If I can't get a charity, I have family members running very small charities, mostly church-related (I could probably get some halfway houses on-board, though), which could be used as a last-resort, though I think community interest would be particularly weak for a church, and I'd hate to only have sucky numbers on-hand when contacting future charities.

PM or Skype me. (going to be away until late tonight)
