Since being diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis 2 years ago, I've been participating in the annual National MS Society fundraising walk in effort to raise money and awareness for the disease. The funds they receive are put to great use - see distribution chart below.


Being a bitcoin advocate, I decided it would be great to accept donations in bitcoin this year. As the society does not handle bitcoin directly, I have setup a coinbase wallet. Using coinbase, I will sell the coin and donate the proceeds to the National MS Society.  

Bitcoin address: 1GKBBqgqZXaCXpVb3ZqA88BphA9apTiBZU

I am open to any questions you may have.  

Thank you for your time and donations.

I am open to any questions you may have.  

Have you considered some sort of rewards program where everyone gets back 120% of their donations when five new members donate?

I'm personally not huge on giving coin back. The MS Society does have a fundraising prize program, but I'd rather see the money go to disease research rather than a free coffee mug.

However, I'd be happy to send an MS T-Shirt or a Zazzle gift certificate to purchase your own (for those who dont like to give out their address) to the top donor if the total donations collected exceeds 0.1 btc.

March is MS awareness month so I thought it was a good time to get moving on the donation collections.  As of the time of this post I've been sent 0.001982 btc in donations.  

I know it must be hard to donate without proof that the coins will actually go towards the cause - and I'm not sure how to prove that they will. If anyone has an idea, please post.

Well, how about having the national MS society post that bitcoin address on their website?  Or some sort of confirmation from them AT ALL that you're legitimately collecting money on their behalf?  Surely they must have given you guidelines on how to do this when you started collecting money for them?

knarf180, I'm not saying you're a scammer or anything but it might make more sense to post some kind of proof that you are doing this and also use an escrow.  People are going to be leery about sending BTC to an anonymous forum address.  How many times have you donated?  Is this like a sponsorship where you walk 'x' number of miles and you donate money based on that?  I'm all for helping charities with bitcoin but you need to post more information for this to appear legit.

Well thats not true at all.  I've emailed the chapter of the NMSS I'm raising money for asking them to post something about the bitcoin fundraising I'm doing on their website.  Waiting to hear back

Gee, I wonder if this was a legitimate MS sufferer who didn't know that you couldn't just up and suddenly start collecting bitcoin money on the internet for a random cause you believe in!

Because the alternative would be a scammer, and god knows only 90-95% of the people asking for money on bitcointalk are scammers
