BitCharities to Open new Opportunities for Philanthropy with Bitcoin
, May 14, 2015 at 17:35 UTC
BitCharities is launching this month to open the doors to exciting new opportunities for philanthropy, thanks to Bitcoin.
In the recent months, Bitcoin has become a philanthropic currency. Like Bitcoin, social good doesn't have geographical boundaries, nor should it be limited by donation fees. To help those two communities come together, bitLanders.com has launched bitCharities.com, with the mission to educate their 500,000 users and the world about Bitcoin, and bring non-profits to the world of digital currency.
By providing a user-friendly platform where digital citizens of all income levels can donate to charities using Bitcoin, bitCharities' goal is to bring social responsibility opportunities to millions of people all over the world. On bitCharities, anyone can support a charity of their choice with micro-donations as low as 10 satoshis (1/500 of a cent).
BitLanders users can also show support to their favorite non-profit organization through their avatar, with free accessories carrying the logos of the foundations. bitLanders and bitCharities make donating fun, as donors are rewarded with Bonuses, to further earn more Bitcoin, and continue supporting their favorite charities.
So far, more than 20 leading non-profits have joined bitCharities, including Action Against Hunger, Americares, or GMRF, currently triggering about 7,000 donations per day. You can see a list of all the charities at http://www.bitlanders.com/pages/top_charities and donate at www.bitcharities.com.
