A Dollar A Day charitable giving project : over $700 donated in October 2018 - monthly summary of donations received & given out

in #adollaraday5 years ago (edited)

After the difficulties of September October has bounced back to be a good, good month for A Dollar A Day.

The number of steemians donating increased by over 14%, witness supporters and delegators both continued to grow. and the big headline news was that we managed to donate our highest ever monthly total of over US$700.

This brings the total donated since the project restarted in May to just under US$4000. We are now well on track to reach the target of $5000 by the end of the year.

This was before our really special news of the month came into play.

Oracle-D, who are doing a fantastic and much needed job of bringing investment into steem, very generously donated all the liquid rewards from a series of posts they did to promote the NetCoins voting contest.

In total this @oracle-d initiative resulted in an amazing donation of 230 SBD. While some of this will go into the general daily donation fund, a significant portion of it will be set aside in a special projects fund.

And the cream in the coffee was that steem won the Netcoins contest which means that steem will be available for sale in a large number of retail outlets around the world. Check out @crimsonclad's recent vlog on this...

While on their current business and investment tour of Indonesia Matt @starkerz and Dylan @anarcotech of Oracle-D visited the SOS Children's Village in Banda Aceh to explore how blockchain technology might be able to help them. A Dollar A Day is looking forward to hearing how we might help on that project.

A number of other very kind steemians donated rewards from fundraising posts during the month including @cryptocurator, @honeybee11, @kantos, @paintingangels and @pechichemena.

October has been a terrific month for A Dollar A Day, and November is measuing up to be even better with some great new projects and initiatives coming soon.

Stay tuned... and keep donating. Thank you.

  • Because of the recent lack of SBDs being paid out in posts quite a few donations were given in steem. These were exchanged for SBD on the internal market and rounded up to the nearest whole SBD - any difference being made up from @adollaraday reserves.

  • To help A Dollar A Day reach its target of $5000 by the end of year A Dollar A Day contributed 67 SBD from post rewards to the daily donations.


October saw a continual flow of incoming delegations all helping to build the voting power of the @adollaraday account.

Alas with the lowering steem price the account is still short of our target of being able to give out $1 votes to the projects we support. The account vote is currently at around $0.58 from around 13,000 SP. So it looks like we will need to grow the account to around 25K SP to deliver the sought after $1 vote.

If anyone knows any big delegators do let them know about A Dollar A Day 😊

In the meantime my great thanks to all existing delegators and new ones that have joined this past month including @carlagonz, @coolguy123, @darlenys01, @mcfarhat, @meetmysuperego and @someguy123.

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.

My thanks also to Linda @canadian-coconut, @drakos and @sniffnscurry for their generous upvotes on the project posts. These are being recycled back into enhancing the daily donations.


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.

Excellent @adollaraday, a very detailed and transparent message of your activities, thank you @pennsif for this beautiful project, may God continue to bless you.

This project is excellent, I can't believe I had not even noticed before. A superb incentive to keep our beloved Steem Blockchain active and growing. I have pitched in with a little delegation and will do my best to support your posts with upvotes as well. Keep up the awesome work you are doing.
