The total sum pledged per charity is 146.2 (Cell B1 on my accounting sheet). I'm sure some people won't hold up their pledge because they've forgotten about it by now, but I suspect we'll still get close to that number, anyway.

I guess I'll send a letter to the Freemasons about their charity tomorrow Cheesy

Perhaps somebody else should take care of contacting any organizations starting with the letter "F" for we've seen what happened with your furry friends, Rassah.  Wink

If you get them to accept Bitcoin, and they are not a political or religious charity (not a church), they will get the sum of all the pledges. I think at this point it's about 145BTC per charity. So, about $600 to $700 of free money just for adding a Bitcoin address to their donation page  Tongue
Surprisingly, we still have no takers.

Cool, thanks for the clarification! I'll give em a try and let you know what happens!

Great, joshbb! Is there any way can you get them to include a Bitcoin logo button, same size as the PayPal button, albeit small but that doesn't matter at all? Otherwise, we're golden.

I think it's right, but wanted to make sure the use of bitcoin above isn't suppose to be capitalized.

Great work! Sent groupbstrepinternational 1 bitcoin.

I must say though.. the progress is glacial. (No thanks to me.. I haven't hassled anyone to accept in a while)


Not long ago - nten.org made a little video about bitcoin, and although it seems like a bit of a 'dig' at bitcoin - It's actually really good that they're aware of it, and the intention really was a mixture of humour and expression of curiosity - not hostility.
See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=58556.0

nten.org is the Nonprofit Technology Network.   It's their job to help nonprofits use technology.

This is the perfect organisation to help charities and other nonprofits understand the value that Bitcoin brings to them.
We really should be reaching out to NTEN so that they in turn can educate their members and help them get set up.

Thank you kindly for your pledge, P4man, and for donating to http://www.groupbstrepinternational.org/donate.html at their Bitcoin address 1G85cQXETuGeMGvniv5SuMACegCR6L51A5. I have updated the OP of this thread to reflect your pledge as well as adding your name to the list on the official website at http://bitcoin100.org/about/partisans/.

It's about time we have a winner. In future emails we should use this organization as an example to help us get more organizations on board.

I'm ready to help fund the next wallet. Smiley

At the moment, there is 458.58064967 BTC in the main wallet, not counting the backup(s). At 100 BTC per non-profit, we're able to kickstart 4 more charities, with a 5th pool jump started.

Let's not forget achive.com as an example, albeit Bitcoin 100 didn't have a direct hand in that, many members and users here contributed generously to that cause.

I guess now we need to bug the following people to honor the amount they pledged in parenthesis, and have them send it to the 1BTC1oo address along with transaction #. Anyone wana bug them, or should I? Also, should we rename the group to Bitcoin 110? We totally busted through the 100 members figure a wile ago Cheesy

Er, perhaps spoke to soon. I was under he impression that BTC 100 was 100 people donating a bunch of bitcoin, not a bunch of people donating 100 bitcoin? Some people pledged 1BTC per charity, some as much as 10, so the total pledge amount is 156BTC, of which 101 has been honored to date. See detailed list here http://goo.gl/Mk3hp with pledge info in row 2 columns H and I

For fear of having a major discussion ensue, I offer up the following, quote from the OP of this thread.

Quote
At first, there'll be no need to necessarily donate Bitcoin. What's desired, at the onset, is more than 100 individuals stating that they'll pledge (without having to gift at this stage) at least 1 BTC to Bitcoin100 then, eventually, honoring that pledge toward only causes they're most comfortable with, for this endeavor to fully function accordingly--as I currently envision it. The reason for requiring a minimum of 100 supporters is to guarantee, optimistically, that at least 100 BTC rests in the initial wallet when charitable organizations are ultimately approached.

That said, it's not truly written in stone. The key part is that we desire to give no less than 100 BTC to any non-profit who accepts our terms. Surely, nobody advocates giving the whole wallet to them, thus having to start anew funding a new wallet. As it stands right now, and I'll already mentioned, Bitcoin 100 is in position to honor 4-5 non-profit organizations at 100 BTC each.

~Bruno~

That's not entirely true, since the reason the wallet is so big is largely due to some people pledging and donating a lot at the same time, but only wishing a part of their pledge to go per charity. For example, Zhoutong has sent 100BTC, CryptoXChange sent 50, and an anonymous donor has sent 184BTC, but each only wished to pledge 10, 1, and 10 BTC per charity respectively (I didn't move their donations to separate addresses like with Gsan and Teukon because they didn't request it, and it's easier for me to track them all together). I don't think those people want to fund entire 100BTC charity pledges singlehandedly. Without the people I mentioned who have yet to honor their pledges, we actually have 101.854 BTC ready to donate right now. After that, the next round will probably be around 40BTC, unless we get people honoring again right away.

You are 100% correct, Rassah. Had my head up my ass for a sec. Comcast was up, down, up, etc., when I tried to get on top of this issue when it first came to light. That said, 101.854 BTC in the first pool is close enough, therefore give that total amount. After that's done, we'll work on getting the second pool funded to 100 BTC.

No, we're still fighting about it  Grin

What's the fight? That's a damn good cause. Rassah, please PM me when you send the coin so I can send my donation for the next charity. Thx

Figure of speech! Only hashing out a couple minor details before we send the first issue to the printer.  Grin

Although I would love to see a button on their donation page, but that's not a deal breaker. I suggest the same size as their PayPal one, and pay close attention to their color scheme on their website. Orange may that be a good choice in this case. They can implement it after they receive their first lump sum.
