Dear member,

This is about showing the bitcoin community is able and willing to support charity and is not only used for criminal activity as some people might think.

I am a student at the Erasmus University Rotterdam doing the master program Entrepreneurship, for the course bootstrapping (getting things done without resources) a technique often used by start-ups, we set out to barter our way to flight tickets to work for a charity. Another bootstrapping technique is crowdfunding. I discussed bitcoin with my professor who told me this probably would not work. Another way to get attention is via facebook, a page is being developed at the moment.

I set out to prove him wrong and show the people at my University how bitcoin can be used for a good purpose. This is not a beg for money, I know this is not appreciated and I do not like people doing it myself. Al I am asking for is showing support with a micro transaction. The bitcoin will be used to perform the charity activity and as an extra, during my final presentation,  I will ask everybody in my class
to make a wallet so i can transfer them all a small amount of bitcoin and help the community grown and be trusted more.

All help is welcome and please spread the news.


Thank you for your support
