Please all of you. This is a small town that now has a BTC address on their FB relief page and no donations..  They have no idea what bitcoin is.  A dollar each or something.. most of them doesnt know wtf it is.  Show them!  That's how adoption happens.  Give a fraction of a dollar.. whatever.  It'll show them what it is!

Thanks,

Zohann

Can you offer any proof that this website is actually in support of the town of Weed and that donations will be well managed and used for the direct benefit of the Weed community as a whole?

It would be quite easy for a con-artist to set up a fake Facebook page and prey on the compassion of others to steal money.

Proof is what is needed for people to trust and want to help you. As stated anyone can set up a Facebook page and claim that they are taking donations to help people and many have done in the past who have turned out to be scammers.

Did you go to the FB page?  Its not fake.. this is a small town!  Most of them don't know wtf Bitcoin is, so its pretty embarrassing that I conviced them to put up a bitcoin address and noone is donating.    Sad really.  I don't give a fuck, I did what I could to help.

I did.

Its not fake..

Can you prove this?  How would I know?

Perhaps you should have considered the importance of proving that this isn't a fraud before you put the effort into convincing them to do such a thing.

Sad really.

The devastation is sad.

The fact that con artists exist is sad.

The fact that you didn't put enough thought and effort into this endeavor is sad.

The fact that nobody is donating is pragmatic.

I don't give a fuck,

That much was clear from the very beginning.

I did what I could to help.

No.  You did what you felt like to help (assuming that you are not a con-artist).  Clearly you could do much more.

What is sad is you seem to be trying to make money of people actually suffering. 

This seems like a 100% scam to me.  Someone should set something up with this town and actually really donate to them...

Weed is burning in California?

These scammers have a sense of humor/are idiots.

This isn't a scam, and I apologize for being frustrated last night.  The relief effort is actually going quite well.  We're working with the distribution centers to get a coinbase or bitpay account so that funds can be sent to them directly. We'll have a press release out soon.

Please help if you can.
