Claire Squires was running in the London Marathon to raise money for the Samaritans (a charity to help people who have problems and perhaps feels suicidal and need someone to talk to) - she suffered a heart attack a mile from the finish line and sadly died.
It has become a big news story in the UK, and people responding to her tragedy have raised over £900,000 so far.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17862293
I've just sent a message to http://www.justgiving.com/Claire-Squires2
(the site Claire set up before the marathon, to raise money) asking them if they would be willing to accept a donation to this cause in bitcoins.
I decided I wanted to contribute (like thousands of other people), but could only see paypal/credit card options and I wanted to do this anonymously.
I sent justgiving.com a message via their support form (they gave out no direct email address ), asking if they would accept bitcoin.
My intention, once I get a reply, is to use http://www.coinapult.com/
to just send them some bitcoins to their reply email address in the hope they will take the opportunity to accept these bitcoins.
Now I'm not sure how I feel morally about this - I want to give something to this charity, but I don't want to give out my details and perhaps I shouldn't force bitcoin on them, but I intend to (if you have an opinion I'd like to hear it - I've not sent anything yet . I've just asked if they would accept Bitcoin)
But giving is giving, and I hope if a few others try this then they may be inclined to accept these bitcoins.
If you are inclined to contact them please emphasize that you would like to specifically contribute to the Claire Squires cause (though feel free to find your own cause).
(I think justgiving.com also appear to be an ideal website for bitcoin100 if anyone more eloquent than me wishes to contact them)
