Hello Rassah (and everyone else on this forum!),

My name is Cary Kelly, and I am the outreach campaign manager for ASI Conserva Chile. ASI Conserva Chile is the only association of conservation initiatives in private and indigenous land reserves in Chile, and one of few such organizations in Latin America. Recently, we launched an Indiegogo campaign to sponsor scholarships for indigenous leaders to attend our biodiversity conservation congress this summer. Indigenous communities in many Latin American nations struggle to gather the financial or technical resources to participate in growing conservation initiatives, and we want to change that by bringing key indigenous leaders into the dialogue.

As you can probably assume by my simple presence on this forum, we have decided to open up our campaign to bitcoin donations. Indiegogo does not formally integrate bitcoins into their campaign platform, but we're independently accepting bitcoins which we will then re-donate into the campaign fund, acknowledging the donor and their preferred bitcoin donation method.

We would be honored to be recipients of a Bitcoin 100 donation of any amount, and we have plans for future bitcoin incorporation soon! Though our small, mostly volunteer team in hectically busy in anticipation of our conference in Congress, we're currently discussing how and when to integrate donations into our own organization (www.asiconservachile.org). Bitcoin awareness is fairly nonexistent here in Chile, but people are slowly catching on.

Here you can learn more about our campaign:
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/indigenous-leader-scholarships-latin-american-conservation-congress/x/1273897

And here is our address where we're accepting donations for the campaign: 1H8Sdng8dQwk7CmT7frs6GGLmfzs2gFwXH

If donating, we would still like to recognize you on our platform and offer you the listed perks, so please shoot me an email at cary @ asiconservachile.org

Please let me know your comments and questions!

Best Wishes,

Cary Kelly

It may be difficult to honor exactly what you request, but your site http://www.asiconservachile.org/ sure does qualifyfor funding from Bitcoin 100.

All that needs to be done on your part is to embed a Bitcoin donation option onto the site, and you're good to go.

equineangelsrescue.com representatives were very receptive to my proposal, and I'll discuss this with their head tomorrow. She's out shoveling horse pies today. There is also a charity/nonprofit panel at this convention on Sunday, where I plan to represent a bit.

I understand Phinnaeus. I just sent out an email to our webmaster, and hopefully we'll have a button up within a few days. I'll check back in here once I'm sure that everything functions well.

Thanks!

Great! Ideally, it'll be great if you were able to use BitPay, especially if they're able to wave the transfer to fiat fees in your country. Of course we're only talking about a percent or two, but... Either way, a standard Bitcoin donation option button embedded with an address would suffice. Incorporating BitPay is not mandatory. If you were in the US I may insist upon it for it'll give them extra expose or save you the fees, but too wouldn't have been mandatory.

Wish you luck. Please let us (Rassah, edd, and/or myself, if via PMs) know once it's up so that the wheels'll a get a goin' here. Please post in this thread as well for all to read.

Thanks, bud.

Huzzah! In reference to my earlier posts about ASI Conserva Chile, our bitcoin donation button is up and running on our website. You can view it in the upper-right corner of any of our "Who are we" (Quienes Somos) web pages: http://www.asiconservachile.org/ I'm talking to the webmaster to ensure that the button is available for viewing from all of our pages. Just a small fix.

Given that ASI Conserva Chile is not a U.S.-based non-profit, we just went with what I personally use, Coinbase. However, if you highly recommend Bitpay, I'll make the switch.

Please let me know your thoughts!

And thank you! We really appreciate your consideration.

Looks to me like Bitcoin 100 got themselves another NPO to add to their list. I'm sure there shouldn't be a problem once Rassah and edd do a quick review.

If anybody has any extra bitcents lying around, feel free to sent some their way. Take a look at their website and see where they placed the Bitcoin donation button. I think you'll like its placement.

The placement of the button is nice but WTF??? I wanted to send $2 their way and the thing askes me to send exactly one bitcoin??? For an anonymous donation that's a bit steep. The wording "send exaclty" sounds like if I send less, Coinbase will just hide it from them and "try to settle this with me" and if I send more, they will just keep that and try to settle with me again?? Donations should not have a minimum or otherwise exact amount.

This criticism is for Coinbase, not for ASI Conserva Chile though. I'm glad to see some bitcoins flow to Chile and sad that actually they don't flow to Chile thanx to coinbase Sad
ASI Conserva is there no techy among your organisation that promises to buy those coins and sell or not sell them on the Chilean market? I'm in Viña and would offer to help out and I know in Santiago trading Bitcoins is not really much of a problem.

Edit: Coinbase stinks. Either they just got 10 bug reports or zero. The input allows me to enter 0.05, the radio buttons once selected don't allow me to unselect either 5 or 10 but the payment request is 1BTC regardless of what i click above. Sorry but Coinbase seams to be busy counting millions rather than to implement some decent interface.

I noticed BitPay sometimes rounds off donation amounts to whole bitcoins, or just one or two decimals. That could be a problem I think.

Thanks, giszmo, for bringing this glitch to everybody's attention. It may be prudent to have this issue resolved before Bitcoin 100 moves forward with any action. I'm sure it'll be addressed to all concerns' satisfaction. I will PM Nonprofit, linking them to this post.

As I said, it's not their fault, so they deserve the $1000 but maybe they don't deserve the publicity from B100 until the donation progress is usable. Wonder what Coinbase has to say about that issue.

I'm sure this minor issue will be resolved accordingly. I have sent a PM to Nonprofit.

Giszmo, if you would be so kind, can you send a PM to Coinbase expressing your concern? I feel it has merit.

Thanks all for the attention and the good points. I´m traveling and out of consistent internet access until Thursday, but I´ll look more closely into the button interface and provide some actual feedback later this week. I´m by no means a Bitcoin expert, so the easiest solution might just be switching to a different intermediary such as Bitpay.

I appreciate all of the help though!

FYI, that Coinbase 1.0 donaton amount is pretty much arbitrary. You can send whatever amount you wish to the address that it provides. Whatever you type into the entry field doesn't seem to actually do anything.

ASI Conserva Chile has successfully received the Bitcoin 100 donation, and we're ecstatic! We'll be using the funds to support bringing key indigenous leaders in Latin America to our conservation congress this summer.

Rassah: As for actual Coinbase process, did you encounter any problems? Did you just input the amount into the entry field? If there is just a problem with the radio buttons, Coinbase allows you to enable/disable that feature. It actually seems better to me to disable them anyways.

I typed in the amount into the entry field, then selected the option to send bitcoins, and it asked me to send 1 BTC to an address. It didn't matter what I typed into the entry field, it always asked me to send 1 BTC. I sent the correct amount to the address, and the confirmation button never went anywhere. It just sat there, looking grey. I'm aware of this Coinbase issue, where seemingly NONE of the features in the interface work or do anything, and just sending whatever amount that needs to be sent directly to the address provided seems to work fine.

Rassah & all generous donors: Thank you so much for the donation! This will certainly go a long way towards creating greater Bitcoin awareness amongst the committee & staff and helping out in funding SPICES operations.

Thanks again

Hi again.

I promised that the "Sternenhof" foundation (Herbert Denk Stiftung) will give a more detailed report about the exact use of the Bitcoin donation in a press release within the last days. Unfortunately we had a tragic accident, in which one of our 2 lamas (the white one) died.

http://media.pnp.de/_em_daten/_cache/image/pnp/0xUmFuZG9tSVYwMTIzNDU2N7CBKLBJgY6yk5wYSuGlXO+82tH7EoEyXbiTI3EMswP7AiX+z8IWZqyPa6h3mrbHG6DNgzf0BVS+wUKjAPB0C/9iP01xdyj+jyICDQr+Gb36.jpg

Due to many unexpected incidents the Lama was able to get out of the area and had an accident with a car on a main road a few km away from the sanctuary and died immediately.

As both animals had lived together nearly for their whole life there was a big relation between them and the other Lama "Hatschi" (which is handicapped also) is very sad of course.

So our main target at the moment is finding a "new Lama friend" for our "Hatschi" - and chances are great that it will be successful in the next days!

We plan to use the bitcoin donation for the Lama help and we will post more information, also in Facebook  (over 4000 followers) and here in the Forum of course.

Many thanks

Frank for Sternenhof (Herbert Denk Foundation)
