Quote
"Nonprofits are still facing very challenging circumstances," said Una Osili, director of research at The Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, one of six organizations in the Nonprofit Research Collaborative.

Few will actually go out of business, Osili said, but cutting programs and laying off staff are a real possibility. Many are using volunteers to do jobs previously completed by staff.

"The good news is that nonprofits are starting to look ahead and think about ways to adjust to the new environment we're in," she said.

I have an idea to help lead those cash-strapped charities to look into Bitcoin, tentatively dubbed the 3% Solution (or plan--whatever). Day after day, there's news articles and blog posts, as I've demonstrated by providing a link above, about charities looking for ways to fill their coffers. Most of those sources have a comment section. What I desire is a simple comment penned that would pique the reader's interest, just enough, that they would be inclined to Google the word 'Bitcoin'. The comment would probably be aimed at the writer of the article in general, and at charities in particular. The 3% Solution comes into play in the wording of the comment, having them realize that they, as a charitable organization, would have access to 100% of funds collected if only they had a Bitcoin donation option embedded onto their respective websites. (some other take would work just as well)

I must be missing something. Why "3"?

It's a good idea but probably not wise to have a generic all-purpose reply that is simply copy-and-pasted into comment sections, but rather a "skeleton" of a reply that can be fleshed out with a commenter's own words to address a specific article and avoid the appearance of a "canned" reply.

Still around.

I've thought of that. Sure would hate to have 100 identical comments coming back to haunt the Bitcoin community. But a draft as you described is surely not out of the question. That's one reason why I opt to have this thread, to garner suggestions such as yours. Thank you, edd.

What if a simpler comment would suffice? One such as, "Perhaps the answer lies here." Where 'here' is a hyperlink (or a hyperlink follows) to a well written blog post outlining a 3% Solution, or any other plan, to help charities in the economical times we currently live in, with Bitcoin, of course, as the main theme/solution. All we would need is the Blog post written (perhaps a similar one already exists), then a select few of us take it on our own accord and pen such a sentence in our own wording, each time changing the wording slightly to be in sync with the articles. Each article would have to be read prior to any posting of comments, oppose to simply spamming comments sections for the sake of it being a numbers game. It'll be an ongoing process. Not one starting today and ending next week. We'll even have to read some of the most recent comments to make double sure we're not posting on top one another, thus not double linking.
