Also this

my name is Romy and I am from Berlin, Germany. I work for a NGO which helps children from arabian countries to get free tutoring. I really would like to know how to register for bitcoin100.
Our website:http://www.schuelerpaten-berlin.de/index.php
I really really appreciate the help.

Thank you!!


Romy

Hey, Can you tell me what else I have to do and how this actually works?

I think maybe there was some confusion. When did you add the Bitcoin donation option? Phinn claims he found out it was as far back as November of last year. On another thread you mention that you added it specifically because of Bitcoin100, but we were never contacted about it previously. So, I guess the questions are, when did you add Bitcoin as a donation option, and why were we notified only recently?

Gulp! Looks like we may have to reconsider, Rassah, given the following (of which the post was never edited):

Hello Bitcoiners!

I know there is a specific Forum for the bitcoin100 topic, but I am very new and to be honest I just didn´t understand how I could post in that forum. This is why I am posting right here, and I really hope that someone is going to help me Wink
I am from Berlin and I am working for a NPO/NGO here in the city. We help arabian children with homework and tutoring so they get the help for free. Right now we are delevoping a concept so we can help children in other cities as well.
Our homepage: http://schuelerpaten-berlin.de/
I heard that there is the possibility to the be registered at bitcoin100 and I would like to ask you how it works.

I would really appreciate your help and support!! Have a good day

best,

Romy

Some more requests

Quote
From: Andy Posner

Hello,

My name is Andy Posner.  I am the Founder and Executive Director of The Capital Good Fund, a 501c3 nonprofit based in Rhode Island.  David Bailey referred me to you re: the offer to get $1,000 worth of Bitcoin donated to you.

Here is the info I was told to provide:

The Capital Good Fund's Tax ID#: REDACTED

Short Description of Capital Good Fund:
Capital Good Fund (CGF) is a social change organization whose mission is to provide equitable financial services that create pathways out of poverty.  As a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), we offer families living in poverty one-on-one Financial & Health Coaching, free tax preparation and personal loans of up to $2,000.  Since our founding we have grown to a staff of 15 employees and 80 volunteers and disbursed 409 loans totaling $420,000, graduated 700 people through our Coaching programs, and returned $1 million in tax refunds and credits to the community.

Sincerely,

Andy

Hi Rassah,

I hope all is well – I am writing you on behalf of Arizona Microcredit Initiative, a nonprofit that I cofounded that has 501(c)(3) status. David Bailey said to reach out to you regarding a potential Bitcoin donation.

Our program provides a 14 session class and microloans to entrepreneurs in the Phoenix area. After they graduate from the class, we help businesses that have less than $40,000 in annual income, a business with less than 5 employees, and need less $5,000 in capital. You can see more about our class at http://www.azmicrocredit.org/classes/.

$1,000 would help us advertise our class and to give capital to more entrepreneurs. If it is of interest to you to contribute towards our cause, please let me know as we would love to have a more formalized discussion.

Thank you, enjoy your great week.

Best,
Daniel

Tell David Bailey to stop, or we're going to run outta money.  Roll Eyes

Seriously, they both look fine, Rassah.

I desire to express my thanks to uvwvj for donating the $25 USD bounty I paid him to Bitcoin 100. I'm not providing the tx for privacy purposes, albeit he may not have a concern if I did such, but want to be on the safe side nonetheless.

Here's to hopin' that I can win another bet off Josh this year so that I can spread it around.  Grin

Well hot damn. I feel pretty stupid about this one, too, since I vaguely remember reading that post. I say we chuck this one up to a language barrier (entirely our fault, because our German SUCKS!) and the donation is on it's way: https://blockchain.info/tx/d0567d0c67c0c0fe6bcd105d654d0f6e4e956413e5da3656ca4473321b2fe909

One last bit of midnight oil burning before I pack to leave for Miami

Quote
From: Felipe L

Hey Dmitry,

I just found your website was was very excited to see your awesome offer to NPOs. I’m the Technical Director of a nonprofit called Nar-Anon (www.nar-anon.org) and since I personally am a huge advocate of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, I added the ability to donate to the organization using Bitcoin on our webstore.

I’m the only person in the organization that even knows what Bitcoin is. The Organization Director kind of smiled and nodded when I asked about implementing it, but I want to show her that it’s a great thing for us to accept it early on.

Thanks so much and I hope to hear from you soon!

The above is actually a summary of two e-mails (first and second paragraph were separate), and after the first e-mail I mentioned that Bitcoin100 doesn't really reward bitcoiners for being fans of bitcoin, but after the second, I'm not entirely sure how to go on this one, since he's not the owner of the charity. Comments/feedback?

At the moment, they accept bitcoin donations the same way Richard Sherman accepts bitcoin payments--via Shopify: http://nar-anon-webstore.myshopify.com/cart

Via Google search:

First Post | Nar-Anon WebStore - Shopify
nar-anon-webstore.myshopify.com/blogs/news/7681071-first-post‎
Apr 11, 2013 - This is your store's blog. You can use it to talk about new product launches, experiences, tips or other news you want your customers to read ...

Ergo, all Felipe did was add the following image on their donate page, coupled with a little text pertaining to Bitcoin, whereupon the http://nar-anon-webstore.myshopify.com/cart page is generated.



Shopify starting accepting bitcoin payments on Nov. 27, 2013, as seen below via Google.

Quote
Shopify Merchants Can Now Accept Bitcoin — Ecommerce Blog by ...

www.shopify.com › Ecommerce Blog › Shopify Updates‎
by Mark Macdonald - in 38 Google+ circles
Nov 27, 2013 - We're pleased to announce that starting today, all of our 75000+ merchants can start accepting Bitcoin.Our new Bitcoin integration is available ...

Here's our quagmire: If we endow Nar-anon, we'll have to endow ALL other NPOs that ask and use the Shopify eCommerce solution for donation and product payments.

Unfortunately, this is shame, for I like Nar-anon. But, there could be a solution.

Since Felipe is the CTO, I'm sure he'll have no problem convincing the director, Cathy K., to embed a standalone Bitcoin donation option button, of which redirects to our friends at BitPay, where there'll be no fees associated with the conversion to fiat deposited into Nar-anon's bank account unlike, I assume, being the case with Shopify. The same relative information would have to be given to BitPay as was given to Shopify when they set up their account there.

Rassah, would you be so kind as to reply to Felipe, linking this post so that we can see what we can do together to endow their noble cause?

One more thing: I've never adamantly expressed which payment provider an NPO should use, if any, but in this case, given the circumstances, I'm somewhat pushing the issue this time. I'm sure that Felipe would not have any concerns in this regard, but if he does, Bitcoin 100 looks forward to addressing them.

He, I'm back from Miami! Was quite busy there, and am still somewhat exhausted from my "vacation." One of the two most interesting things I've found out at the convention is that there are TWO David Baileys out there, one from Alabama, USA, and the other from England; both are bitcoiners. Anyway, back to work.

First, some thanks:

We're running a BeWelcome.org fundraiser of 3000 euro and your donation has been a great head start!

As the vice treasurer of the organization: Thank you very much!
Kasper Souren

Then some more requests

Quote
From: Seth

Greetings

My name is Seth, I've found a ytube video from Freedomain Radio naming Bitcoin100.org
I am the webmaster of a soon-to-be registered charity organization: www.brotherlyhands.com
Stan is the president, can be reached at: info@brotherlyhands.com
and I already mentioned Bitcoin100 prior to this email.
What are the specific requirements to qualify for this contribution?
I am setting up a non-profit myself, that will become an artistic/cultural hub.
Looking forward to your reply

Seth

I'll reply with the usual spiel. I guess for now check whether they qualify.


I also got the following:
Quote
My name is Renee and I run a non-profit in in Vancouver, Canada called PeaceGeeks. We have actually been accepting BitCoin donations for about a year, but we were wondering if we might still qualify for your contributions. I believe your goal is to spread awareness and the legitimacy of BitCoin as a means of contributing, so in this sense, adding another organization to your list would advance your cause while being a big help to us. Kindly advise when you have a moment! All the best for now!

They are not qualified, since they have been receiving bitcoin for a while, but they were wondering if we could add their site to our list. They asked if they could at least get listed on our site as a list of charities that accept bitcoin, since apparently our list is used as a source of places to donate to. I think we can accommodate them. Edd, can you add peacegeeks.org as a charity, with a note reading "disqualified: already accepting" to our site? When I have time, I'll have to go through the list and fix up the status messages a bit, since many of the charities on our list don't accept btc, and apparently don't plan to.

Will do, Rasah.

I've been thinking about starting a blog/CMS site listing all bitcoin accepting charities that I know of, whether or not they meet Bitcoin100 prerequisites for a donation from us, so that like-minded bitcoin donators can find them.

Still around.

Thanks. Yeah, I was thinking about that, too, but Bitcoin100 already has the name recognition and marketing (I've heard a few people say they use it for a list of Bitcoin charities), so I think it ma be better to keep us as such a resource, and just rework how we list things. Maybe a separate page for charities we have contacted or are considering, and a main page that lists all charities that accept Bitcoin, with the ones we sponsored having some big emblem, like "Bitcoin100 Approved and Funded" on a big brown-orange badge instead of the 100% text, with a link to the TX when you click on it.

And yet another request:

Quote
From: Joe Wos

The ToonSeum, a nonprofit museum of comic and cartoon art is now accepting donations via bitcoin and would like to learn more about your program.
Thanks,
Joe


When asked when they added bitcoin donations to their site, and how they have heard about it, they followed up with

Quote
Three days ago lol! I heard about it from my 12 year old son. After a visit to CES i became convinced that we should do it. Though i still have some reservations. Still trying to grasp it all but I'm a geek so love tech!.

Joe

FYI, I know this charity very well, since they are just a few blocks away from Anthrocon, the biggest furry convention in the world, and are very often frequented and heavily supported by furries during the convention. So vetting isn't really an issue, as I can completely vouch for them (having visited them myself), but they should still be reviewed as a matter of consistency (and we need to make a decision on whether they qualify despite already deciding to accept it themselves).

Both www.dolfilms.org and www.orphanbracelet.org would work, but only one endowment per person. I would love to see both sites accept bitcoins, whether for donations or purchases, and sincerely hope they embed a Bitcoin donation option on one of the sites so that they can receive a $1K USD via bitcoins endowment from Bitcoin 100.

~Bruno Kucinskas

It took them quite some time, but they finally got it set up http://www.dolfilms.org/

Donation sent! https://blockchain.info/tx/d33d324019699d0b27b982fadd2b33da034b00f8fd4c52f470895d2c1cc07858

and their reply

Hello Rassah,

Thank you so much for the donation.
And yes it was worth it [I said I hope all the work was worth the reward], not for the money, but to get the button on my page...

affordable housing NPO interested in seeking bitcoin donations

From: Ryan N.

Hello Dmitry,
I'm a treasurer for La Reunion, an non-profit Affordable Housing Cooperative in Austin, Texas that opened in April of this year. To remain affordable we bought an old building which has required much more maintenance that expected due to health and safety issues such as bedbugs and high levels of carbon monoxide.
One of our goals is to establish more computer literacy in the community by setting up a computer lab and a mesh network and try to provide internet to the surrounding apartments. This goal has been put on the back burner due to high maintenance  costs. Because the founders are educated and use technology for organization we realize how far behind some of our lower income members are and the the pressing need to bring them "on-line" both to the global internet and to our local organizing structures, like our wiki, maintenance trello, food pantry app, etc.
We've set up fundraisers for both maintenance  and tech  and I'm sure by accepting bitcoin we would get more donations. With a $1000 dollars worth of bitcoin we could buy the routers and computers to get started at building a community provide internet and housing.
If you would like more information check out our wiki or email/ call me.

I like this org, but can't seem to find their donation page. They are fairly new and use a wiki as their website, but they are linked to 501(c)3 org. I'm curious as to where they would prominently display the Bitcoin donation option on their website. They do have a descent Facebook page.

Donation option added to their page http://lareunioncoop.org/home and $1,000 donation sent.
https://blockchain.info/tx/bd890b6e23c4487b310acb2bee506b2f7c30b3290761d3cb49f4498a2b0aeda7

Let's hope hat incentivises their community to use bitcoin too.

Wrote this in response to a media inquiry, and posting this here so I can save it for later (and to let others use it), because damnit, if I don't get paid for this kinda stuff, at least others should get some use from my work  Angry

(The following is free to use and reuse as anyone sees fit)

Quote
For charities:
  • As you said, transparent transactions add a whole new level of accountability to charities. For example, Bitcoin100 uses a single address for all its accounting (https://blockchain.info/address/1BTC1oo1J3MEt5SFj74ZBcF2Mk97Aah4ac), so everyone can always see how much we have, and all the money coming in and going out. The only time anything should be going out is when it's going to a charity, so any questionable transfers would get us instantly busted.
  • Charities get to keep more of the money they were given (BitPay, Coinbase, and BIPS charge 0% processing fees for nonprofits)
    Adding bitcoin instantly opens a charity to accepting donations from around the world, which is especially great if you are a charity in, for instance, Cebu, Philippines, where the local pool of donors may be small, but global support for what you do may be enormous.
  • Thieves sometimes use leftover funds from stolen credit cards and PayPal accounts to donate to charities. When the theft is discovered, the charities get hit with chagebacks, which involves a fee ranging from $20 to $100, and having their likely-already-spent money pulled right back out of their bank accounts (which may result in overdraft fees as well). Bitcoin doesn't have chargebacks and isn't susceptible to that kind of theft or fraud.
  • Globally dispersed charities, such as one that would have its central office in USA and it's operations in Africa, can send money internationally much easier, quicker, and cheaper if that money is kept as bitcoin. For instance, it's possible for a funds manager in any part of the world to send bitcoins to a field worker in any other part of the world, and have them use that money to order supplies from Amazon, or a slew of other products and services, within a few minutes (I have literally received funds while waiting in a checkout line, and had a gift card purchased and ready to go before my last item was scanned). Likewise it's easier to pay salaries with bitcoin to employees stationed around the world, since the currency conversion, if needed, is done by each individual employee at the source, and the money gets deposited to everyone within minutes.


For the poor

  • Bitcoin allows anyone to open an online "bank" account. Your level of income, credit score, area of residence, age, race, religion, or anything else doesn't matter. Just install and app on your phone or set up a wallet account on a computer (even a public one), and you instantly have access to the online economy. (I have read a few Post-2008 articles about towns in US being abandoned by banks due to the low income of the population making maintaining the branch unprofitable, thus cutting the people of the place out from the international banking system.)
  • Remittance payments are typically done through MTO's (Money Transfer Operators, like Western Union), which typically charge fees raging from 6% to 11%, and typically much higher if the destination is more remote. Essentially, the poorer you are, and the more desperate your family back home is, the more you get screwed. Bitcoin allows people to send international payments to places all over the world for anywhere from %0 to 3%, including exchanging into and out of the currency (0% because in many areas people will actually pay you a fee to get your bitcoins, since it lets them buy things from abroad).
  • Many of the poorest countries are actually blocked from receiving money from abroad. For instance, despite PayPal's impressive list of supported countries, in many of those countries the citizens are restricted to only sending money between themselves. Credit cards, likewise, block sending payments to many countries due to fraud issues. Bitcoin can still be sent there, so a poor software developer can still be hired from abroad, and a poor merchant can still sell his wares to everyone around the world.
  • That last one is the most important; "The other 6 billion" as BitcoinTalk's Andreas Antonopoulos calls them. Bitcoin requires very low level of technology to work. For instance, companies like Coinapult let you to use bitcoin with just a simple dumbpone and SMS service, which are very prevalent throughout the 3rd world. Imagine a farmer or a merchant with access only to villages within walking distance, suddenly being able to take his business to the online global market, with just the help of a basic cell phone.

Bitcoin100 had its own exclusive article, and holy shit what a sensationalist title! (This article had nothing to do with the post above, as the one above was for Wired)

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasperhamill/2014/02/03/bitcoin-charity-admits-its-biggest-donation-ever-was-likely-stolen-money/

"Admits it's likely" and "Suspect it might be, but have no proof either way" are rather different, but media will do whatever media will do to get readers *shrug*

From: Frankie

Dear Laura,

Please meet my friend Dmitry. We met in business school and he now runs a foundation that is looking for worthy nonprofits to donate to. He recently donated $1,000 each to my friend Jessie's IBME and my friend Amy's Primate Education Network. I think he will really appreciate the work you're doing with Heart of Oregon Corps.

@Dmitry, I met Laura at a dinner party this weekend. She's the executive director of a great organization: Heart of Oregon Corps helps young people find a way out of poverty through jobs and education. They could make a big difference with a $1,000 donation.

Good luck!

From: KR

Greetings Rassah,

    I am writing because I am inspired by the work you do with Bitcoin100.org, and also because I am a volunteer with a NPO that is doing some very important research that directly impacts health and environmental issues on a global scale.  Carnicom Institute is currently trying to raise funds for several projects, the most urgent being the acquisition of PCR equipment to assist in the DNA analysis of the elemental biological entity suspected to result in the phenomenon of "Morgellons Disease", which has yet to be positively identified by medical science.  I joined the team a few months ago, and was already a bitcoin enthusiast before that.  One of the first offerings I made to the institute was to assist them in being able to accept bitcoin donations on their website.  They are a registered 501(c)(3), and there is a donation widget on the organization's front page:

http://carnicominstitute.org/

In the event that Bitcoin100 is still offering support, we would like to be considered for the assistance that your organization provides to bitcoin-accepting NPO's.  If there is anything I can do to answer any questions or to better meet the donation criteria, then please feel free to reply to this message.

I appreciate what you do, keep up the great work,

Kaylee Tejeda

I hope this email reaches you, I know Bitcoin 100 is currently undergoing restructuring.

I've been a foster home for rescued dogs with the NYC Shiba Rescue (http://nycshibarescue.org), and just a few months ago also took over the position of Head of Fundraising. The first thing I wanted them to do was accept Bitcoin (I've been a Bitcoin advocate for years), as I knew it would help us reach a more global audience, and would make donations much easier to accept, without having to pay enormous Paypal fees.

Well, the time has finally come, and we now have a Bitpay account, front and center on our donation page! We're very excited to start accepting donations, and so I thought I'd reach out to your organization in the hopes we can gain some publicity on your website.

This past year we took in many dogs with serious medical conditions, who are thankfully now on their way to a full recovery, and many have already placed in new homes. Unfortunately this has left us with about $11,000 in veterinary bills from 2013 alone. We are thrilled that we were able to save these dogs' lives and find warm, loving homes for them, but it left us in dire need of donations and support.

If there is any way you could assist us in getting started with our Bitcoin donation campaign, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Tani Olhanoski
Head of Fundraising
NYC Shiba Rescue
a 501(c) Organization

Hello,

My name is Andy Posner.  I am the Founder and Executive Director of The Capital Good Fund, a 501c3 nonprofit based in Rhode Island.  David Bailey referred me to you re: the offer to get $1,000 worth of Bitcoin donated to you.

Sincerely,

Andy

Seriously, they both look fine, Rassah.

They added a donation option, and $1,000 donation has been sent:

And yet another request:

The ToonSeum, a nonprofit museum of comic and cartoon art is now accepting donations via bitcoin and would like to learn more about your program.
Thanks,
Joe

I've vetted these guys (by virtue of checking that their donation was only started a few days ago, and by actually visiting there in person a few months ago), so I'm giving them the go-ahead myself. $1,000 donation sent: https://blockchain.info/tx/1aa3247f692482b1e52d845109b36ee1f24dd7ba449dac79d371d47c808d4b8b
