sad that this has a little support.. cmon guys even just pennies, it can help alot. Sad

I think it would be good if the earnings you make from a signature campaign is donated. I am going to donate 10% of my earnings from Bit-X every week.

Nice idea!
Probably if most of us donate only a small percentage of our signature earnings it would get to a quite ammount of .BTC's.

Hello.

From Bit-X a Senior Member like yourself could donate 10% for example. And that could be as high as 0.03!
If 20 Senior Members can do this that is more than half a bitcoin. If the rest of the members ( Hero , Full ) chip in, it can lead to 1.2 / week.
Which I think is for a good cause. So @BitcoinStriker should we start this and see where it leads? I am doing this regardless.

I appreciate the passion I am reading from users wanting to help raise funds. We had hoped to raise more than $600 by now so that we could make arrangements for a drop on March 10th. We are now officially pushing that date back and hope to see some growing support this week. If we have failed to reach our goal by March 15th and it looks as though fundraising has slowed to the point where this fundraiser is a failure then we will consider whether the community would like us to return the donated funds or hand them out to the homeless along with some food and supplies. Hopefully this is just a precautionary explanation. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far and a special thanks to OgNasty for helping us to accept Bitcoin and also for sending us a huge box of granola bars to hand out at the event!

I think if someone wants to quite gambling and is just bitcoin earning for some spare cash and not for there bread money, they should look at this.
I will put this link in my personal message. I will try to get some people to donate.

Watch this video of my favourite football player; Zlatan Ibrahimovic. If you were wondering why my personal message was #805million
805 Million I watch this a lot and I thought about this.

Honestly, if this was filmed great and put on YouTube, you probably would make more than the donations received. Then you could do it again.

I'll watch it on YouTube once you do it.

Just to reiterate we will not be entering into an ad partnership with YouTube and there will be no income from the completed video. There will be no profit of any kind for the MrDove team or anyone else involved with the event. The goal is once again to "encourage others to do positive things" & "inspire others to participate in similar events" and I do not think that making people sit through advertisements before seeing the video is the way to accomplish either of those goals.

No worries, once YouTube tried to show me an ad and that was enough for me to block the ads on all devices I use. Sometimes a video won't play on mobile then. In that case, I just report the video for not working--it'll work later.

Go ahead, make money off the video. People love those sorts of videos.

Actually someone else told me they had this idea, to collect money for charity, and to take half. I wonder how transparent, what happens with the btc given, this will be.

I'll be using a long trusted contact to convert the BTC to USD and physically mail it to MrDove.  I think that is as transparent as I can be for them.  They are adults in their mid and late 30's with kids as well as good jobs.  I don't think they want to make money on the video, or else they would have just used their own money for the drop.  From my discussions with them, I believe they liked the idea of the community funding a non-profit project like this because it would give it more appeal.  One of my terms for them however, was that they profit in no way from the event or video.

We hoped that using OgNasty would provide as much transparency as possible. It is unfortunate that others think it is acceptable to take half of the money donated for charity. So far all of the private messages I have received are from parties wanting to piggyback on this idea for their own profit. This was not the sort of response I had expected or hoped for. If anyone has any recommendations for how we can act more transparently or give assurances that we are doing this only for the joy of helping others and encouraging others to give to charity by making it appear fun with an uplifting video then please feel free to post your ideas.

We are currently $586 from our goal.

Well we got some good news.
Bit-X has increased their payouts. I have a potential earning of 0.3 / week. So I will hopefully manage to get 0.15 - 0.2
I will donate 15% / weekly earnings and hopefully keep this thing alive! I will talk to a few guys part of the campaign.

Yes. According to last months total payout, if everybody gave 10% of their payout, we would hit our goal by the end of this month Wink

I am going to go into the Bit-X thread and try to get people to do this...

That is a good point. I think the OP should point out how he / she will be doing this.

You are taking this idea the wrong way!

Instead of dropping fiat from the sky to some random people on the street, while everyone forgets it was bitcoin a minute ago, I prefer you take a homeless guy to a restaurant that accepts bitcoin and I WILL PAY for his meal! make a video of me paying a homless guy for the meal across the world with bitcoin!  , hell make 20 videos of those kind of ideas!
