Moving this thread around to several communities that were involved with TCR. Unless that is against the rules (could not find anything otherwise).

Increase cross pollination so that food production may increase as well. Go for saving the bees.

How about moving it on off topic? Though I do not know if it will take more traffic out there.

Why did you have to make each option so appealing? I've been struggling to place one above the other or eliminate any of them for my vote. I do not know what to do, and I do not want to place my vote disingenuously. Since I participated in The Collective Raffle it only feels right that I throw my 2-cents into where the prize-pool ends up, but lacking new information that forces me to reconsider I will only be able to give my endorsement to wherever it lands.

Is Crypto Quilts a Non-Profit or charity? I didn't realize that you forward all proceeds to the Quilting guild, must've been awhile since I read that OP. Is the Quilting guild itself also a non-profit or charity?

Good on you for holding true to your word about donating the prize-pool. When the donation has been made will you post your confirmation(s), TXID or something else for verification?

One could argue Ross was the second most important person to getting bitcoin to where it is today. He  gave  bitcoin its first real life use case and exposed so many people to the freedom of controlling your own money.

Everyone loves the bees and they are awesome, I admit I like to eat LOL.

I voted for the quilting guild because I love artisan craftsman and there isn't enough of them unfortunately.  I am still waiting to get one for myself.

Free Ross has secured my vote; Something very tangible/visceral about their situation and fate after doing what I believe to be a net-positive. I might not understand how effective donations would be towards his cause, but that doesn't mean I don't think it would help. Historical, relevant and unfortunate. We may not be able to save the bees, but we have a chance to see Ross again someday.

Would there be any potential to split the donation amongst a few different organizations or charities? I'm just curious if you have already considered this or if it is something to give a bit of thought to.
