..digging out this old thread.
It seems like www.kenija2012.net is down, by now?

Probably simply because of "Record expires on 18-Jan-2013"?

Not implying anything is fishy here, but I would like to see this project (and Bitcoin's involvement) not vanish into being completely forgotten..

Ente

I don't know what their plan was with the domain, but since this is over now there is no real reason to keep it anymore. Some information can still be found on their facebook page.

Yes, if anyone has any contact info related to this project I'd appreciate it if you could PM me. I just wanted to follow up to gauge interest in future Africa work.

You can try contacting them at kenija.odprava@gmail.com. I'll let them know.

https://www.facebook.com/OdpravaKenija2012/info doesn't look like https://www.facebook.com/kenija2012

blockchain explorer.

from the source BTC100 address funds have been syphoned off to a 1Kenya address and then looped through 'empty addresses' (no other trade history) to then reach the end point of

1DwSkYaY3poxAzAiu7ipUqmoTZkq1o57HJ

some direct payments from BTC100 went their too,

so who owns 1DwSkYaY3poxAzAiu7ipUqmoTZkq1o57HJ and why were the funds moved at all in the first place?
quote from btc100 address
"Rassah and Roger Ver (Bit Instant and Memory Dealers) have complete control over all donations currently residing in the Bitcoin wallet having the vanity address 1BTC1oo1J3MEt5SFj74ZBcF2Mk97Aah4ac, awaiting their next destination–a worthy non-profit organization."

AWAITING?? - moving funds is not waiting.
destination a worthy non profit. - please provide details which non-profit owns the 1DwSKY address.

secondly the images on the website have been ripped off of 'oxfam' images aswell as unicef. hopefully they have permission

How the hell did I miss this (in bold) and nobody else commented upon it?

Hi Rassah,

I talked to someone last night who works for a great non-profit (giving wheelchairs to kids in 3rd world countries) that might want to start taking Bitcoins. I instantly thought of you!  Any advice I should send his way?

Thanks.  Smiley

If you think it is an organization that you could get behind let me know and I will PM contact information for my friend there.  He said he was not sure what the directors would think but he was very interested!  He had never even heard of Bitcoin until I mentioned it to him.  Of course there are many great organizations out there that could use support but this is one that I thought might be open to allowing Bitcoin donations on their site.  Not sure why anyone would not want to?  I guess they don't really get the potential?  Wink

I vote yes for this one. There's a lot of god in their website description, but all they seem to do is give out wheel chairs to anyone who needs one, so I don't think it's a problem.

Lend For America apparently does have a donation page here http://lendforamerica.org/contact.html Any comments on whether they qualify?

Thanks for considering it Rassah!  I messaged my friend and will PM you at some point with the contact info.  Yes, the organization is more of a humanitarian outreach than "religious" one.  I know how you feel about that. Wink

It's not how I feel about that, it's what the organization's policy is. It's not my money that Bitcoin100 will be donating.

Basically, it's a simple process to vet the NPOs, then give enough time for anybody to express their concerns, whatever they may be.

For instance:

http://web.archive.org/web/20021122155532/http://www.freewheelchairmission.org/index_fast.htm

Then make sure the NPOs are not heavily religious-based.

This one passes!

Another request. Can we use an innovative financial instrument to donate to a charity that focuses on innovative finance?

From Vanessa

Quote
Our charity is Lend for America (lendforamerica.org). We offer a platform to help college students practice microfinance in the U.S. Students raise small funds to make microloans to disadvantaged business owners in the community next to their university. We've grown from 3 campus MFIs in 2009 to 24 today and we offer several programs to help students including online toolkits, in-person training during site visits, an annual conference, and a year-long fellowship program. We were founded by and still remain within the legal structure of the Intersect Fund Corporation - tax ID #: 36-4636828. The Intersect Fund was founded by students at Rutgers University in 2008 to serve small business owners throughout New Jersey.

Please let me know what other information you may need.

This charity was actually introduced to us by DavidBAL, who found out about us at the Amsterdam conference, and was also at the Atlanta conference.
The first thing I notice, though, is that they don't have a donation page. Hmmm  Tongue

As you've lightly touched upon, The Intersect Fund is the parent entity: http://who.godaddy.com/whois.aspx?k=61s/TEfclYDjhittscQD7ocgaSDf62z48ufwU3MZRuT8G6wTsA2hPFxE3+jhD+/P5UuheAwIp4w=&domain=lendforamerica.org&prog_id=GoDaddy

On a side note, edd should soon be turning in his resignation for defacing my pizza thread.  Grin  Grin  Grin

Rassah, it looks like the Intersect Fund is the best place to send an endowment.

Regarding this

Just had a Skype call with Amy and Pradeep of the Primate Education Network. Their fiscal sponsor http://trustforconservationinnovation.org/ does the donation receiving and processing for them, and handles quite a few charities. Amy and Pradeep want to try to convince their sponsor to accept bitcoins, but mostly had some questions regarding legal issues and regulatory stuff.

Just got an update today:

Quote
Pradeep S.

Hi Dmitry!

I have good news!  Our organization's fiscal sponsor (for whom you answered all those questions) has finally approved of using Bitcoin as an experiment.  We're signing up for coinbase on Monday most likely and enabling contributions soon thereafter.

Thank you for your time and continuous support.

Despite the delay, I hope we still have the opportunity to seek your contribution.  Please let us know.  Thanks again for everything.

So, looks like we'll be sending out another donation soon Smiley

It looks like they're closely tied with veganoutreach.org.

I have no qualms with either of these two orgs, but wanted the info out there for full disclosure.

The Humane League looks like a fine candidate for a $1,000 USD endowment from Bitcoin 100.
