I've got a donor's choice gift card code that somehow lets you give money to help classrooms.  It's a 25 dollar value, but I'll let it go for two BTC.  Everyone wins:  you, me, and the children.  Send me the money or throw it in ClearCoin, and I'll send you the code.

If no-one buys this, I'll destroy the card.  The children will get NOTHING.

[No, I didn't burn the card...]

Alright, some more details here:

DonorsChoose is a charity that allows you to direct your contributions to a school or program of your choice in a grassroots manner.  That way the money goes where you want it.  If you want to help kids in inner-city NYC, you don't have to worry about your money going to Alabama or vice versa.

It's endorsed by Oprah.  Steven Colbert is on the board of directors.

I don't have any kids, and I don't know of any programs that I'm particularly vested or interested in.  So I could just pick a random sub-charity, but thought I'd give someone else the opportunity to direct the money to a cause that is important to them.

For 2 btc, worth about 14 bucks at this time, you can contribute $25 to a charity that you care about.

Take a look at the site and see if there are any programs of interest to you:

Do you have two bitcoins?  Wink

Tell you what, someone (other than jbjbjb) send me ONE bitcoin and I'll donate the money to jbjbjb's charity of choice.  Look at those first grader's faces.  Help out a fellow bitcoiner.

Thanks for putting this up for grabs! Another option is to consider this project: It Takes More Than a Village, To Nurture Planet Earth.  Please help out high poverty first graders and Planet Earth at the same time! Smiley www.donorschoose.org/hyoo.

Thank you!  Smiley

I'm not putting it up for grabs.  I'm a very greedy person looking to profit.  Or more seriously, I don't have any particular interest in a given charity, so I thought I could make a bitcoin or two, and someone interested in one of these charities could give more money than it cost them, and myself, the buyer, and the sub-charity would all win and everyone would be happy.

But I suppose if I don't get any offers, I'll role the dice and donate to one of the charities listed here.

deal. tell me where you want the 1btc shipped, and then just use the card for jbjbjb's project. Make sure to mention bitcoin in your note for the project page so I know you did it Smiley
