This is just an idea, so thoughts welcome. It could be similar to the justgiving.com website (where people get donations, usually in return for doing a difficult challenge, towards a set target). All money would go directly to the charity/ies of their choice. Using BlockExplorer and a static payment address this would be easy to set up. I think it would help improve the perception of Bitcoin as a useful currency in the eyes of the public. Thoughts?

Charity is always a good way to introduce a new product to the public.

Get a site up, get some ideas flowing, and come back to show us!

I was hoping this forum could help generate some ideas  Grin

Even just a homepage with 1 charity a week featured on it and a bitcoin tipping address would work. Then all the money goes to that charity directly, or via JustGiving.com

I swear one of the Charity sites has something like this set up.  I thought there was.

If the charity has a Facebook page, you can take this idea.  The whole key is to set up the donation page itself nice for both the Bitcoin and non-Bitcoin user.  Promote that page to where it actually has a few donations.  I guess $500 to $1000, I am really not sure what people consider a decent amount as far as charity.

After enough time passes to collect, present the donation to the person.  Say the page is open and people are still giving donations.
