@Admin: Would you be so kind as to allow this thread to stay in Discussion for 48 hours, whereupon you(s) or I will move it to Off-topic? It would be appreciated. Thank you.



EDIT: The goal is to send out 100 emails on Monday/Tuesday.



Due to a recent kick in the ass by a couple Bitcoin 100 supporters, I (we) need to send out more emails to non-profits to try to get them to embed a Bitcoin donation option onto their respective websites. This thread was created to solicit requests from supporters and non-supporters of Bitcoin 100 as to which non-profits you, the reader, would like us to approach. Please submit a name of any charity you feel should be consider. This thread is not meant as a discussion on any of the suggestions, but anybody wishing to express a dislike for any suggestion will be duly noted. That said, here's a few of my suggestions, which feel free to express if you truly don't think I shouldn't pursue any certain ones. Any post with a simple +1 would be nice as well.

~Bruno~

If there are no objections, I will be emailing the below after the 48 hours is up. The list will grow as the suggestions pour in.

Then please contact them. I have been updating a thread for a week asking people to donate AND to contact charities. Everyone expects Bruno to be a one man show - collecting donations, maintaining the thread and the website, and contacting all the charities. I think that’s too much to ask someone that’s also trying to hold down a job outside of Bitcoin. It would me much more productive for each member of the Bitcoin100 to contact one or two charities and move this idea forward.  

Thanks for the kind post, CBH. To be fair, I have been a tad lack in this endeavor and did need an ass kicking. True, I'm busy, but I had ample time to do a tad more with Bitcoin 100, but have either put it off or ignored it. That said, it's time to get busy.

Probably true, but would need to take a second look at it nonetheless. I've learned about Charity Navigator thanks to bitlotto's post.

Here is their donation page: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=content.support&apl=10

I've just updated the title of this thread and edited the first post. The goal is to send out 100 emails to various non-profits, mainly by me. All I wish from you, the reader, is to peruse the list in the OP, pointing out why a certain non-profit shouldn't be approach, coupled with adding your suggestions.

We seek a world in which open knowledge is ubiquitous and routine – both online and offline. We promote open knowledge because of its potential to deliver far-reaching societal benefits which include the following:

  • Better governance: openness improves governance through increased transparency and engagement.
  • Better culture: openness means greater access, sharing and participation in relation to cultural material and activities.
  • Better research: for research to function effectively, and for society to reap the full benefits from research activities, research outputs should be open.
  • Better economy: openness permits easier and more rapid reuse of material and open data and content are the key raw ingredients for the development of new innovative tools and services.

Not a charity per se, but an interesting idea that is seeking donations.

Also I'm surprised that http://childsplaycharity.org/ isn't on the list yet.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

I would also suggest engaging organizations via their social media facets. I've encouraged three orgs to accept bitcoin using facebook/twitter just this morning.

Both your suggestions are now on the list, LightRider. Keep them coming folks.
