Longtime Antiqua and Barbuda resident, Calvin Ayre, wants people to send immediate relief aid to the islands. Hurricane Irma recently plowed over the island system and caused tons of damage. Ayre has been involved in the bitcoin and gaming ecosystem for many years. He implores everyone in the community to bring much-needed disaster funding to the area, and his foundation will match each donation.

The Calvin Ayre Foundation is also fully involved in the relief effort. However, they said the area could use supplies as well as monetary donations, including tents and emergency supplies. They are working directly with local officials and institutions.

Ayre Will Match All Donations. Furthermore, the Ayre Foundation said they will equally match all donations up to $1 million dollars. These matched donations include any amount of money that comes from the gaming and bitcoin communities. The press release clarified that these donations will be separate from the one he made to aid his adopted home.

We have been hearing of news about how online hijackers can be demanding ransom to be paid in Bitcoin and it put some black eye on the reputation of Bitcoin (though this is unfair, of course, as any other form of money can be the medium for any ransom negotiation).

Now, it is time to show the world the better side of using Bitcoin. We can use it for humanitarian purpose and with the recent devastation left by Irma it is high time that we share whatever we may and we can use Bitcoin to convey our love and sympathy for people and places affected.

This is actually one are that has to be explored more...Bitcoin can be the best way to help other people and I am hoping that this is only the start...more and more humanitarian projects should be channel via Bitcoin to make the digital coin more appealing and more close to our hearts.

Yes, close to our hearts! That's Bitcoin should be...right?
