The Global Peace Initiative Switzerland is a charitable, tax-exempt organization in Switzerland dedicated to promote peace in the world. Since approx. a month we are accepting Bitcoin donations. Here is our donation page (in German): http://www.friedensinitiative.ch/spenden
Can you include us on the Bitcoin 100 Charities list as a non-political, secular charity eligible to receive the Bitcoin equivalent of $1000?

Im not sure if this is religious. They claim they use the money to teach persons the peace techniques that came from a yogi. It sounds partly like it could be done to build persons that might help bring peace? somehow. But objectively it sounds like a school for teaching religious lessons from a sacred book. Im not sure what the result of such a peace tech pupil would be.

Dear Mr. Murashchik,
The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is a non-partisan, 501(c)3 organization. As a university-based research center, the Mercatus Center advances knowledge about how markets work to improve people’s lives by training graduate students, conducting research, and applying economics to offer solutions to society’s most pressing problems. We accept donations in Bitcoin at http://mercatus.org/donate
and would like to take advantage of Bitcoin100’s offer to donate the equivalent of $1000 to charities accepting Bitcoin donations.
Thank you for your consideration. I have attached our IRS letter certifying our nonprofit status.
It seems to be a (online?) university. Donating of course might help better the life of people like education will always do.
The difference seems to be that they try to "The Mercatus Center is a university-based research center dedicated to bridging the gap between academic research and public policy problems."
"The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is the world’s premier university source for market-oriented ideas—bridging the gap between academic ideas and real-world problems."

Dear Rassah and all of Bitcoin 100,
I currently work for a non-profit organization called More Than A Game
that focuses on using soccer to give refugee youth the opportunity to grow in character, leadership, and teamwork through soccer camps, tournaments, and leagues. This summer, we'll be sending a team of soccer coaches over to Iraq to start up a sustainable soccer league in a Syrian refugee camp near Erbil. We recently began accepting BTC as an acceptable way of donating, and I was wondering if Bitcoin 100 would be interested in donating BTC to More Than A Game? Let me know if you are interested or would like more information!

Looks like a classic charity. They seem to use football to first make competitions to collect money and second use football to better the life of refugees by having fun.

I'm a board member of a non-profit in South Korea. We coordinate safety and cleaning initiates all over the country for the rock climbing community. I've recently heard a podcast about the bitcoin 100 on the Ltb network. I'm very interested in providing bitcoin as a donation option on our website and was curious about the donation promotion your group is currently doing. The site is KOTRi.org
Please let me know what actions we can take to move forward.
All the best,
The website is rather simple but it looks like they try to make climbing safer? They donate workpower to clean walls, recreate the wall for being safer and donate money to victims of climbing.
I only found other mentions of the website at the usual internet marketer promotion ways but nothing like wikipedia, bigger newspages or something.
The first url http://effectivealtruism.ch
is a pretty simple website. There is a movement effective altruism but it has a different url and is mentioned with it on wikipedia. So i dont know if this site here is real or only tries to mimic another project.
The domain http://www.giordano-bruno-stiftung.de
seems real and tries to be a lobby for non religious people by spreading ideas of humanism and so on. They are religious critics it seems. At least they critizice that religious projects are paid by the state too and such things.
The domain is mentioned on wikipedia so the project seems real.http://foundational-research.org
I didnt found the url widely used, the website looks easy but it seems the articles are unique.
Seems to be about humanism again. They try to think about how to better the life of people. Or stop suffering at least.
Let me know if those opinions are worth anything or if you look for something different.
