Make a little list of charities, causes, public services, popular content creators, foss projects, etc...

Every day send 5 emails, like the one below...  One to each.    For example:    Kiva, Ubuntu, LinuxFoundation, Craigslist, FreeSoftwareFoundation, CharityWater, Lighthouse, WorldVision... You name it....   Pick YOUR favorites.

Example:

Quote
To:         donations@torproject.org
Subject:  Donate to Tor

https://www.torproject.org/donate/donate.html.en

Hello.

I'd like to make a donation to the Tor Project.

Could I please get your Bitcoin address for donations?

( See http://bitcoinme.com )

Bruce Wagner

When they reply, guide them through the process of getting set up to accept Bitcoin donations.   Refer them to http://bitcoinme.com for step-by-step instructions.

As they embrace Bitcoin - one by one - Bitcoin will make huge gains in credibility, name recognition, and more and more mainstream acceptance.

I'm surprised that I didn't have the idea with torproject before, because I'm active member of network for long time. Torproject is very good example why to accept anonymous payments. Many people around the world use it, but they are affraid about their privacy too much and don't want to reveal identity by sending them a money. It is definitely harder to send wire transfer than few bitcoins from China.

I found a charity that I would like to support in my town. It is the Kahlo Cultural Center. They just recently started operating and I was thinking they may be a receptive early adopter of Bitcoin.

Note: they are creativity-oriented. talking about "crypto-currency" will make their eyes glaze over. I plan to pitch Bitcoin to them as a "positive reward Karma system - you have to earn good Karma to give good Karma". I think they will understand that kind of language. Would anybody like to help me out using Bruce's format?

I need to point them to an easy to use Bitcoin wallet managing website. If I tell them to "download the client", they will receive it as "you want me to jump through what kind of hoop with what kind software program I know nothing about?". I feel uneasy pointing them to mybitcoin.com since they are not open source. Is there a good open source wallet management website out there? I will suggest to them that they create a tipit on YouTipIt, but they are not open source either, as far as I know.
