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

I'm glad to here it, Pouncer.

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.



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)

Did Bitcoin 100 just donate to fund a Llama? I believe this is sacrilegious.  Grin

Sorry to hear about your lost. Have you considered an alpaca as a replacement?

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.


Glad to read that this worked out to everybody's satisfactions.

Amazing the shit that can get accomplished once the founder gets outta the way, no longer holding up the process.

A charity that works at the University incubation center with my company is thinking about taking donations in Bitcoin. I've been giving them some advice and pointed them at this thread which I've only just discovered myself.

They have just made a white list request in the Newbies forum and hopefully should post here shortly.

Their charity can be found at virtualdoctors.org.

GoDaddy and Wayback look fine, albeit a tad indexing issue with archive.org. I'm checking on a couple other things, but overall looks pretty good.

If anybody, whether a Bitcoin 100 member or not, has any reservations about this organization, feel free to express your concerns.

Paul Mustardé is a director of Virtual Development, a Community Interest Company based in the UK. Virtual Development runs the Virtual Doctor Project, an innovative new venture that aims to utilize modern technology that can cope with challenging environments, to make it possible to offer doctor-supported primary healthcare to remote, under-served areas of Zambia and eventually other parts of Africa. The project will use email communication via satellite, between mobile telemedicine clinics on the ground and doctors based remotely. This system will allow these virtual doctors to offer on-going diagnostic assistance to clinic staff, who will travel between a number of local sites in four-wheel drive vehicles specifically equipped for the purpose, setting up temporary clinics for several days at a time. paul@virtualdoctors.org

Quoted from: http://www.hifa2015.org/wp-content/uploads/HIFA2015MembersDirectoryforWeb_April2011.pdf

@Rassah ~ Follow the link above and see if you see what I see. I'm sure a slew of potential NPOs can be approached from that list. If that's the case, and more funds are given away, then that it'll less for me to steal from Bitcoin 100 according to Josh.  Roll Eyes

Virtual Development seems to be a fine candidate. We look forward to its representative getting outta Newbie. I'm going to blast a PM to accelerate the process.

Edit: I just sent a PM to tysat. If any other mods are reading this and can take care of it, it'll be appreciated.

Thanks, in advance.

~Bruno K~

EDIT: tysat just PM me, and it's been taken care of. Thank you, again, for whoever did it.

hey there. just found this post after someone mentioned it in my thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=261280.0

i've had a look through a couple of your posts and the site and it looks like a lot of people have rejected bitcoin from you.
have people started warming to the idea of it now or do you still get a lot of rejection letters? A charity near me has recently updated their website saying they are willing to accept bitcoin online. I'm just a bit worried it will negatively affect them with the whole stigma around bitcoin still.
the thread seems positive so far so hopefully it's just me being paranoid. Maybe give them a think in your bitcoin100 venture Smiley lord knows they could use any help they can at the moment!

Feel free to link the charity's site on this thread of PM it to me if you feel more comfortable doing such this early in the process.

EDIT: I found it: cheer4all.org

I hate to say this, but there seems to be a few red flags raised with this org. Is there any way that the people behind it can come here to state their case?

Although an exception was previously made, the cheer4all.org site currently has a Bitcoin accepted here option in place. One of the goals of Bitcoin 100 is to get NPOs to embed said option. There currently are other more viable NPOs accepting donations via Bitcoin of which would not qualify for funding from Bitcoin 100.

That said, again, please feel free to provide more information about cheer4all.org so that an honest accessment could be reached.

In no way am I dissing the organization or who is behind it, for I truly don't know who that person(s) is, hence requesting more info.

ah thats fair enough no worries then. I only mentioned it because someone mentioned btc100 in my other thread when asking about charities etc.

dont know why WBM hasnt archived it at any point. i'm not sure they've had the website very long. we all got told about it when the easyfundraising thing started (http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/cheer4all/) which didn't appear to be very successful. how does it find sites to start archiving?

bit more information about them though:
The guys who started it are from 3 different towns around the UK. 2 guys one girl. The guys grew up in rough area's and were they typical kids getting into trouble with the police etc. They got into cheerleading and it gave them something to actually do so got them off the streets as much and stopped them getting into as much trouble etc. they got quite good at it over the years and ended up competing at worlds and various other competitions around the world. They have since retired now but rather than going into the usual style of coaching where only people who can pay £40 a month + expenses etc they decided to run classes for free and raise money to pay for the venues. We have yet to compete due to costs but hope to do so soon

Hi. We are a UK registered charity called Virtual Development UK and we run a telemedicine project in Africa called "The Virtual Doctor Project", which uses the local mobile broadband network to connect rural clinics in very poor regions where there are no doctors, with doctors and other medical specialists around the world, for diagnostic and treatment advice, via the internet. We currently have three sites in Zambia with a further three being added next month. As with any charity we are always looking for innovative ways to raise funding and Jonathan (No_2) has been talking us through bitcoin and how accepting donations on our website in bitcoin would be a good idea. We are very interested in finding out more about what would be required of us to do that, and also whether there are opportunities here in the UK or in Africa for us to use bitcoin for our purchases.

Many thanks!

archive.org indexes websites without having web site owner doing anything on their part provided the site isn't brand new (it used to take 3+ months, but now more-or-less it's automatic) or a do-not-follow script was coded in the CSS/HTML.

From the overall tone of your post (without doing any further investigation), the cause seems noble enough, but the minor drawbacks are currently outweighing the ability to fund.

Bitcoin 100 would be more than happy to get the word out on this NPO provided its owners present to us something a little bit more substantial to work upon. We hope you understand our position, for it's too easy for somebody to start a charity for the sole purpose to obtain funds from us and/or others, not saying that is the case here, again haven't taken time to prove such one way or another.

Anything that can be provided to us showing us and potential donors that its viable would go a long way.

Glad to see you made it outta Newbie. For all practical purposes, this NPO seems like a viable entity deserving funding from Bitcoin 100.

I'm sure you won't mind if another 24 hours passes so that if anybody has a concern it'll give them time to express it, but I'm pretty sure there shouldn't be a problem. If nothing is posted on this thread shedding any negative light by tomorrow evening, I'll contact Rassah and get the ball a rollin'. In fact, that ball is already in motion with this reply.

If they are successful in their application for funding I'll go through the details of setting them up to use Bitcoin.

    "Give a man a Bitcoin and he'll convert it to fiat, teach him how to use it and he'll join the economy."

If anyone knows places where the virtual doctors can buy the equipment for their charity in btc it will have an even more positive effect on the Bitcoin economy.

Maybe we can ask if Bitcoinstore can add medical supplies to their huge list of things?

What type/kind of equipment are we talking about here? A general idea would be fine.

As far as converting to fiat, BitPay comes to mind, with the possibility of zero (0) fees depending on your location and NPO status. I don't want to speak for them, but off the cuff I believe you qualify. Tony has an excellent team in place over at bitcoin.com.
