So how does this work? I just joined an organization called "Purshoeing Joy", which just sent almost 5,000 pairs of shoes to people in Guatemala. I'm out of Fort Myers and I do all their marketing, the founder is down there right now actually distributing the first batch of shoes we were able to gather in Georgia mostly. The founder is terrified of Bitcoin, but I'm very much invested in the idea.

Are there minimum requirements?  


Dan

P.S. And yes, I realize this is my first post, I've been a lurker for a while =]

Only requirement is that the charity is secular, non-political, and has a website that it can stick a bitcoin donation onto. If he's terrified of Bitcoin, just use a merchant processor that will convert coins to dollars or euros or whatever.

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.

http://brotherlyhands.com/ is only three months old, and we have no way in knowing if Bitcoin 100 is somehow being taking advantage of, otherwise most anybody can set up an NPO today with the knowledge that in a couple months they, too, can not only receive an endowment, but use us, Bitcoin 100, in their press releases to garner more funds that may not go toward the causes they claim to help.

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).

They look fine, Rassah. Soon, we'll all be donning tees depicting Inaba's catchphrase, "I am FURRY, hear me squeak!" (Google it if you don't believe me.)

Gulp! Looks like when Bruno says tomorrow, he means a Fortnight™. I take full responsibility for my actions, in this case, inaction.

I will not promise that it won't happen again, for I'm an idiot. An idiot with a big heart, that is.

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...

Check this link out BITCOIN CONTEST LINK... http://bitcoinbaba.com/ubuntu-bracelet-campaign/

Thank you!!!!!

Bravo! http://www.orphanbracelet.org/

http://bitcoinbaba.com/ WOW! Killer Bitcoin logo. Check it out and place your cursor over it to discover what it reads. It's almost as good as Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending, which, BTW, I discovered recently came in first place in some contest a couple years ago, but was disqualified for some unknown reason. Seriously, I didn't know of the event back then. Anyway, check out the Bitcoin logo: http://bitcoinbaba.com/

I gave away my entire stack of paper wallets, each one with a gift, of course Smiley Also gave away so much advice, my throat was hoarse for the next two days from talking. Speaking of which, I need to poke that horse charity I've been meaning to convince since last summer...

That's great, Rassah. Of course it was compliments of Josh of BFL to me to you. Now, tell me more about poking a horse for, as everyone knows, I'm goat poker.  Shocked

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.


Wonderful! Wonderful! (Just recouping some of my post count due to having ~200 posts deleted due to being an idiot)

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*

Also, first comment courtesy of Phinn's effors. Thanks!

If I didn't have my head so far up my ass with Black Arrow, I would have found that much earlier. I see Milly made her presence in the comment section. I thought I put s/he on a leach when I let h/him know I knew a few things. I may have to fire up a certain thread back up to put this dog back on it's paper. But I'll save that for later, letting this be just another warning to chill. Honestly, I kinda like Milly, and am taken aback that I/us/we have the pleasure of feeling h/his wrath.

For those not aware, the coffee table meme has its origins back during the Pinkie Pie episode.

Bitcoin Charity Admits Its Biggest-Ever Donation Was Likely Stolen Money

If I recall, 184 BTC was worth a lot less back then, in the single digits. Q4 of last year, we received a $5K USD via BTC donation, with the same amount pledged by the same person when we go through it.

Ciao Rassah,
sono molto contento che tu abbia un buon ricordo dell'Italia Smiley
I'm running the Meetup in Rome and working hard to help the spread of Bitcoin in Italy. During last times there is a lot of interest in Italy and usually people use BitStamp as they have an account with Unicredit Bank, that is an italian bank group. There have been some news on national and regional tv in a positive way regarding the new shops that started to accept Bitcoin. Here is a tv news about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vF79IAZw5cg
Today we have around 180 shops on CoinMap, go on with the revolution!

I'm talking with the association of blind people, http://www.uiciechi.it/ that have the mission to help their integration in society.
I had telephone conversation with this ONLUS and they are interested to know more on the possibility to start accepting bitcoin donation, after that i visit the association i will able to give you an update!
I have also contacted the association for deaf-mute people and for the research on cancer http://www.airc.it/. I'm waiting for an answer from them.

Ciao e buona giornata!
Francesco

http://www.uiciechi.it
http://www.airc.it

Both look fine, but make sure they're not closely knit with one another, for both are found on this page: http://www.csvrovigo.it/node/1855

Hi,

Not here to spam/promote, just want to say that I am in support of Bitcoin100

I've just put this live https://the-million-bitcoin-homepage.com/

All of our takings are split 70/30 - 30% back to the users and charity. It pays out to Sean's outpost, IndySci and Bitcoin100.

Hopefully we can encourage people to advertise and play (they can win Bitcoin back also) and then should start seeing money firing out to the 3 aforementioned charities Cheesy

Thanks!

From: Andrew S

Good day.

I am reaching out to you on behalf of my organization, Nonprofit Technology Resources (NTR). We accept donated computer from individuals and corporations, and refurbish them with the help of welfare-to-work program participants and interns from the city’s technical training institutes. These people gain a range of both ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ employment skills. With the support of individual and institutional donors, many of these refurbished computers are given away, with a training workshop, to low-income Philadelphians and the organizations that serve them. Many others are sold at a discount to other nonprofit organizations to be distributed to their clients, also with a training workshop. The rest are sold in our Computer Thrift Store, which is open to the public.

I am inquiring about the Bitcoin 100 donation. NTR is a non-political, avowedly secular organization that focuses on providing technology and training for all low-income Philadelphians. NTR is a registered 501(c)(3) organization located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.  Would you please advise on eligibility and how to enroll?

Thank you very much for your assistance. 

P.S. One of our board members found the Bitcoin 100 promotion last week, and asked that I pursue the opportunity. I set us up to accept Bitcoin on February 5, 2014- not even a full 48 hours ago. And it was done explicitly in response to the Bitcoin 100 campaign.

Andrew Smith
Development Manager
Nonprofit Technology Resources

http://ntrweb.org/ looks fine, albeit a thrift store, with a 501(c)3 I may add. Ideally, I would love to see them have a Bitcoin Accepted Here in their window, but that's not a prerequisite, but perhaps suggest that to them if they're endowed, Rassah.

Hi everyone!

Hope all is well. Thank you so much for your generosity, I can't say enough how useful this is in getting people buzzing about Bitcoin in both college communities and distressed economic zones!

Your donations will be paying dividends to both the community and Bitcoin for years to come!

Beyond thankful,

/db

Thank you, DavidBAL, for your kind words. We're glad Bitcoin 100 was able to help in this small way.
