DONATION ADDRESS:
1BURNT81A3PSc9f7rUTcwjB8vfCQJ17fZo


How it works:
1. You send any amount of BTC to the donation address.
2. I wait until December 24 2013. (give or take a few days.)
3. I change the BTC to USD through someone willing to buy them, preferably someone in the state of IL.
4. I have the fiat sent to my cousin who's house burned down. (bank, check, whatever.)

Unless she happens to have a bitcoin address of her own (which I doubt); in which case I either give her the private key, or send the bitcoins to her wallet.

There is no goal. She just lost her house and all the stuff inside it. She probably has the house insured as she works for an insurance company, but how about all the little private things inside?

They are all gone.

Her name is Lieka Racho.
My name is David "Dabs" Racho.

We are second cousins. (our parents are first cousins.)

Quote
Lieka Racho, 39, and her children, two boys, ages 10 and 9, and a 3-year-old daughter, were all sleeping at 4 a.m. when their townhouse at 450 N. Patriot Drive was hit by a motorist who went off Hainesville Road at a high rate of speed and hit their garage and front door, severing a gas line at the meter.

Quote
“I looked out into the garage and saw flames and could hear a hissing sound,” she said. Racho grabbed her children and they made it down the stairs and over to a neighbor’s house. “Then we watched the flames go up in our house,” she said, adding that she was thankful her parents no longer lived with her because they are older and would have had a harder time getting out quickly.

“It’s hard to see it all burned down,” said Racho, “I’m just glad everyone’s safe.” On hearing the suspect in the vehicle ran, she shook her head. “It’s terrible to know someone just took off,” she said.

Quote
"There's nothing left. There's nothing left. It's burned down to the ground," said Lieka Racho, homeowner.

What's with the date? Oh, I want to give it to her just in time for Christmas. She can spend it later. And gives time for everyone to see this as I'll try to bump this thread to stay on the first page.

Heh, you've obviously never tried to claim off insurance, have you?

It take months and it only pay like 70% of the value depending on the age (depreciation). Is it the same in US?

Yes I have. I have an all-risk insurance. The items in my house are insured up to 100,000 euro.

Yes I have, I dropped my phone so I claimed it. They paid me the next month. But still, we should donate because she'll have to wait a month or 2 before she gets paid? I guess she has family/friends aswel to help her.

Oh yah. So let's say she was able to collect 100% of the value of everything that was in the house. Unless she made backups, she still lost family photos, videos, art drawings, hand written notes from her children, stuff toys, ...

I know from experience that no one aside from me, in my family, makes backups of computer data, off-site (or in the cloud). Of course, everything that was already uploaded to facebook and photo-whatever is still there. (Actually, my two older brothers now do regular backups.)

And she can't live in that house for awhile.

And it's terrible that she lost all those personal things, I really feel bad for her. Losing things like photos is unreplacable. Which is exactly why I don't get we should donate, especially when everything will be paid for by the insurance. That's all I'm saying.

Well, donations are completely voluntary. You want to help, that's why (or that's all.) She has no idea I'm doing this, but hopefully, if the amount is large enough, when she gets it, bitcoin might hit the news or something. I don't know.

Obviously, this is in addition to anything she will be receiving from her insurance company.

Hi everyone,

I would just like to clarify. Lieka is married to Eric, and Eric is my second cousin (he was only mentioned in one sentence since he was not there when the fire happened.)

Also, I just recently found out that their personal stuff are not covered by their insurance.

I am also in contact with the husband, and I can give him the private key later (and teach him about bitcoins, if he needs help). But there's nothing in the donation address yet, so I'll wait until there is something.
