With that, I pledge 10 BTC toward this cause. Now, BP, do you want to maintain the thread for keeping track of the pledges or should I? And how much do you pledge?

One more thing: You're in full control of trying to persuade Norml to come on board--with my full support.

Does this sound reasonable to you, BP?

I hope there is some highly motivated pothead reading this who wants to make a change in this world Wink
Maybe I could get my wife to do it.  Grin

  On that note she has reminded me three times now to ask for inclusion of;
Autism Speaks  This is another one we are biased towards....

Autism Speaks is now on the list, Derek. Amazingly enough, one of the main charities I donate to, here in Sandwich, Illinois, is one that serves adults with autism. When dad was still with us, we've donate 100's of pieces of furniture to the various homes they maintain in the surrounding community. With his passing, I've only been able to generously donate USD and select pieces of reclaimed lumber.

I like this organization.

With that, I pledge 10 BTC toward this cause. Now, BP, do you want to maintain the thread for keeping track of the pledges or should I? And how much do you pledge?

One more thing: You're in full control of trying to persuade Norml to come on board--with my full support.

Does this sound reasonable to you, BP?

Not at all lol.  Only because of lack of focused time I would feel I could actually dedicate toward this, and I would honestly want to make sure the project itself keeps focused and is done right than half assed because I have other shit to do and can't get on the forum.  It sucks though, as I think there is something here that  maybe would be kind of an extension of what is going on with Bitcoin100 that would be a specific focus on Norml, because they are a kind of special case as far as their relation to Bitcoin and the underground markets that support Bitcoin on top of some of those same underground people support Norml.  I back up anyone who takes on this task, I hope there is some highly motivated pothead reading this who wants to make a change in this world Wink

This will be pursued to your liking, BP. I will see to it, handling it with the utmost care thus, hopefully, satisfying all concerns.

As promised, all supporters of NORML need to go here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=55685.0

Operation USA is a much better option than Red Cross. Their overhead is miniscule, and it is one of the largest relief NGO. Richard Walden, the director, gave me four duffel bags of medication to bring with me to a hospital in rural Nicaragua...like, had me come in to one of their warehouses and walked around with me loading up bags with things he knew to be in short supply there. I'd like to see the red cross provide direct relief like that, without worrying about taking credit or how it is getting there. It blew my mind, and was immensely appreciated by the recipients.

Side note, I made it through US and Nicaragua customs with 8000 aspirin and a myriad of tampons, bandages, antibiotics, and surgical equipment, no questions asked.

www.opusa.org

Anyone wishing for their philanthropy to actually make it to those in need should take note.

Thank you, brandondayton, for your three suggestions. They are now on the list.

Thank you for your suggestion, RF, on the other thread (quoted above) for, it too, is also on the list.

The Khan Academy (donations) is the number-one not-for-profit I'd personally like to see start accepting Bitcoin donations. However, it might be a difficult entry for us, as I can see they receive donations in the millions from companies like Google or The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Perhaps we should focus on smaller, less well-funded organizations where our offering might make a greater impact. At the same time, having a big organization like Unicef or Amnesty International jump on board will hopefully trigger a chain reaction of others doing the same.

I think we need to find a sweet-spot between the two, where we can still make an impact, and the organization is well-known enough to provide not only Bitcoin, but this project, with some well-needed publicity.

Thank you, mcorlett, for your suggestion of which is now on the list.

I echo your sentiment completely, for I believe most are on the same page as to what size organization should be approached to maximize the greatest return for Bitcoin.

I started this thread not only for creating and maintaining a list, but to have it as a place for discussion as to which charities should be considered, and why, and which should not be considered, and why. Hopefully, the discussions and opinions will be civil. That said, which charities do you like, and why. I hope this reply addresses you concern.

Ok, I have selected, somewhat randomly, 5 charities from our current list who we are going to contact now.

They are, in no particular order;

Amnesty International - http://www.amnesty.org/
Against Malaria Foundation - http://www.againstmalaria.com/
Medecins Sans Frontieres - http://www.msf.org/msf/
Water.org - http://water.org/
Canadian Cancer Society - http://www.cancer.ca/


I know there are a LOT more charities out there. If you know of one and would like to see it on the list please don't hesitate to add it here. Also, if there is any reason why you would feel that any particular one should not be included please do share your reasons. Thank you all for participating. And thank you to all of those that remain vigilent in supporting charities that may not have the time or desire to speak up here.

Cheers,
  Derek

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

That's a pretty good find, psy. I'm going to email them and ask if they'll be interested in receiving a $1,000 USD donation in bitcoins.

Somewhere I saw a nice list of Canadian Bitcoin Charities -- all broken down into about 6-8 categories.

Can anyone remind me where that is; i.e., send me the link again?  Thanks.
