Despite a continued downturn in the steem price and the steem activity during August I am delighted that A Dollar A Day actually managed to increase its donations compared with July - both in terms of total SBD (up 17%) and US$ equivalent (up 1%).
The total US$ equivalent of donations given out during August again topped $500 at $519.22.
This brings the total donated since the project started to well over US$ 3000.
August also saw an increased number of projects receiving the daily donations (15), an increasing number of steemians donating SBD or steem (34), an increasing number of people delegating to the @adollaraday account (12) and an increasing number of witnesses becoming Witness Supporters of the project (8).
We also set up a curation trail for @adollaraday which was admirably explained in a post by @cryptocurator.
I have also recently produced a post about Five Ways You Can Support A Dollar A Day :
Anyone who manages to do all five at the same time will be added to the auto-voter for my @pennsif account as an extra thanks.

My special thanks to @cryptocurator and @lyndsaybowes who did fundraising posts during the month. And also to @d-vine, @onemedia and @darrenclaxton for the fundraising on their Spotlight On The Artist radio show on MSP Waves.
During August I am happy to report that A Dollar A Day @adollaraday has received several new delegations. I would particularly like to thank top 20 witness @drakos for his generous 1000SP delegation, as well as @cryptocariad, @d-vine, @darrenclaxton, @lillywilton, @scottcbusiness and @shanibeer who have all come on board as delegators this month.
I have also delegated half my steem power (5000 SP) to the account.
The account is being used to autovote once a day (currently at 100%) all the donation recipients to give them extra help.
A small autovote is also given as a token of appreciation to the people regularly donating or delegating to the project.
If anyone else would like to delegate to this account to build up the voting strength it would be much appreciated.
HOW TO SUPPORT A DOLLAR A DAY
The A Dollar A Day project is based on the simple idea of people donating one Steem Backed Dollar (SBD) each day. Those SBDs are pooled to give to a bigger daily donation to a good cause around the world.
If you would like to support the work of A Dollar A Day there are five ways you can help :
1. Donate SBDs to @adollaraday
Just send SBDs for however many days you would like to support to @adollaraday.
2. Donate steem to @adollaraday
If you don't have SBDs send steem instead to @adollaraday.
3. Delegate to @adollaraday
A Dollar A Day uses SteemAuto to vote on the posts of all the projects currently supported to provide an extra regular income. The aim is to achieve sufficient steempower to provide a $1 upvote to each project each day.
Delegations of all sizes are welcome - you can use these links for quick delegations :
Delegators (and regular donors) also receive a small auto-vote as a token of appreciation.
4. Follow the @adollaraday curation trail
We have recently set up a curation trail for the @adollaraday account. You can follow this to help the projects A Dollar A Day supports. @cryptocurator has made an excellent post all about the A Dollar A Day Curation Trail :
5. Upvote @adollaraday posts
All upvotes on @adollaraday posts are welcome. All post rewards are ploughed back into supporting the project.
If you can add @adollaraday to your auto-voter even better.
Thank you for your support.
