I'm thinking about pitching this idea to one of my favorite charities that they should have a presence on bitcointalk. This would increase their exposure in bitcoin community and people would be able to ask questions. BTW, they are already accepting bitcoin donations and they got approved by Bitcoin100.

So the question #1: what board should they create the thread in? What would be the right place for charities?

Question #2: Did any org already do it here? Can you point me to an example of the thread any good charity runs? I looked for Sean’s Outpost and it seems like Jason King doesn’t even have a thread on bitcointalk.

Thank you!

Off-topic.

As charities are offtopic comparing to other topics :-)

Or if that charity want to create "a project" included with their  charity then perhaps "project development".
Answering questions 2: I remember few and they were posted in offtopic or project development :-) if I remember good.  But I dunno which one is "a really good one". Do some research on your own.  Type "charity" in a search box and see what happens :-)

Regards.

Wow! Off-topic board would be harsh Sad They accept bitcoin so we can call them bitcoin charity. "project development" board is probably slightly better.

Thank you for your answers. I was under impression that there will be a lot of bitcoin charities here, but it seems like bitcointalk is not that popular or suitable for charities. This forum doesn't seem like such a welcoming comunity for them.

we welcome charity (when genuine), just had a whole host of scams lately. and yes "greg" i've looked into you too, kinda weird because since 2012 the Ukraines own state social security(welfare) system changed and took better care of the orphanages, offering kids better education, free dentistry and stuff, right when your website went quiet. Cheesy care to update us on the last two years?

genuine charities get a lot of support so don't by shy to keep us up-to-date. would love to hear about current projects going on.

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.

You must be reading my mind! Are you talking about this charity http://orphanresourcecenter.org/ ? If that's the case this is pretty cool. How did you know what charity I want to help?

Yeah, their website sucks a lot. That's why I was going to pitch this idea to them to create a thread here. This would solve the problem of regular reports and would give them more exposure to bitcoin community. Also people whould be able to ask questions and get answers.

Not sure if my pitch would work with them or not. It took me 2 tries and several months to convince them to start accepting Bitcoin donations. But since then Bitcoin 100 approved them and donated, so I hope they see potential in Bitcoin. Now I'm thinking how to get them more integrated into Bitcoin community, but posting in forums might seem foreign to them...

i know more then i let on, i just let them tell their stuff first to see their character. im subtle like that.

i do this because i have donated thousands, invested thousands and i like to know peoples funds are being used wisely. and i think the community do also. im just the person thats not afraid to voice my concerns, even if i have the whit to hold back those concerns to let others dig holes first.

Why? There's really not enough charities at the moment that accept bitcoin to justify a separate board, and it'd just be filled with scammers anyway. I think as a community we should spend some time trying to spread adoption / promote the benefits of bitcoin to charities though.

This would be a terrible idea. All of a sudden, you'll start to see a lot of new accounts begging for donations, or posing as an a charity org.
