Recently the community has come together to participate in a petition that has over 4000 signers, when I look at the number I begin to wonder what else can those 4000 people accomplish together? How can they change the world? What difference could they make that could make an impact on someone that needs it?
So I want to follow up on this thread Who wants to start a collection for Cardano Community to donate to Breast Cancer Research? Month of October - #22 by rickymac @rickymac started this with good intentions and I feel like it should move forward.I think this community has more than enough people to work together on a good cause and I think we will gain much by coming together to do it in the spirit of Cardano.
@Risus76 has a good idea
I personally am not dead set on fundraising for the ACS but it is a good cause and we could move in that direction, I would like to hear idea’s from everyone else about a charity that we could raise funds for, it could be any local charity that someone is familiar with or it could be a global charity.
I propose we organize community members to take lead on this endeavor and hopefully someone with experience in raising funds for such a cause will step forward.
There are 2 positions that we need to fill, 1 Project Coordinator 2.Treasurer
Because of the nature of handling funds I believe that these people need to disclose their true identity and also be voted into position by the community, if you know someone that you could nominate for either position please do so, if you would be willing to volunteer your time on the project please do not hesitate to do so.
The 2 positions are important as this movement should not be restricted to the forum here and we cannot guarantee that any charity will set up a wallet to receive our contribution
The Project coordinator will be responsible for communications between community participants across several platforms available now to the Cardano community and also in identifying qualifying charities to accept our gift and ensuring the community is in agreement to support such charity or good cause.
The Treasurer will be responsible for ensuring that there is a secure wallet to receive funds and that the funds reach the destination the community decides to contribute to, this could possibly entail converting it to fiat and sending the charity a check.
I know the community is more than capable to come together on a fundraiser for a good cause and and I look forward to working with everyone on this project.
If anyone has any ideas on the path forward on this please join the discussion.
