A Dollar A Day charitable giving project update : Delegations, Autovoter & a second meaning for A Dollar A Day
A Dollar A Day now has its own account @adollaraday.
It also now has 5100 delegated Steem Power.
A Dollar A Day is using that steem power to auto-vote the people and projects that receive the daily donations.
I have now delegated half my steem power (5000 SP) to the account.
This delegation is being used to autovote the reciptients of the daily donations.
If anyone else would like to delegate to this account to build up the voting strength it would be much appreciated.
I have set up the free auto-voting tool SteemAuto by witness @mahdiyari to auto-vote posts by the people organising the projects that are receiving the daily donations.
This will give them a little extra support and reward them for the hard work they are doing in their communities.
It will take me a week or so to fine tune the voting percentages as I learn about the voting patterns of the autovote recipients.
These are the donation recipients currently receiving the autovotes from @adollaraday :
- @azizbd, @bigdude, @carlagonz, @darlenys01, @familyprotection, @thegreens, @papilloncharity, @tarc, @yanzel4lyf
The autovotes will be worth, on today's depressed steem prices, around $0.30 each.
It would be excellent if that can be increased to $1.00 each. I guess the account would need about another 12000 steem power for that.
That would give a great second dimension to the A Dollar A Day project name.
I will save the full financial updating for a separate post, but in brief so far in June A Dollar A Day has given donations totalling 240 SBD to 9 different projects around the world.
Unfortunately due to the continued fall of the value of SBD this donation total is only equivalent to US$ 375, so there will need to be quite a significant increase in incoming donations to hit the US$ 1000 again this month.
The projects supported so far this month have been @schoolforsdg4 and @womenempowerment both in Bangladesh, @thegreens in Cameroon, For a Better ClassHOME @yanzel4lyf in the Philippines, @papilloncharity in South Africa, Project Dudeland @bigdude, Project One Opportunity @carlagonz and SteemChurch Venezuela @sc-v all in Venezuela, and @familyprotection.
Support for the project in terms of daily donations this month has come from @pennsif, @cryptocurator, @deliberator, @goldendawne, @hungryhustle, @kryptoe, @makinstuff, @mother2chicks, @nikolina, @redrica, @steevc, @theaustrianguy, @tinypaleokitchen & witnesses @quochuy, @steemcommunity & @yabamatt.
My thanks also to @ausbitbank, @beanz, @canadian-coconut, @eturnerx, @fulltimegeek and @markwhittam for their generous upvotes on the project posts. These are being recycled back into enhancing the daily donations.
How you can help
The success of this project obviously depends on the generosity of the people of steem.
It is based on the little and often idea of giving - a dollar (SBD) a day is all it takes to get involved as a donor.
If you can give for a month, or for a week, that will be fantastic. But if you can only spare a few SBD for a few days that is still most welcome. The project is designed to run on donations of all sizes and frequencies.
If you would like to become a donor to the project all you have to do is send however many SBDs you would like to give to @adollaraday with a memo saying Donation for A Dollar A Day and you will be added to the daily donation pool for however many days your SBDs last.
I am also always on the lookout for new causes and projects to support - particularly in countries where we are not yet giving any support. If you know of any causes that might be suitable please leave a comment below or message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).
June is my one year anniversary on steem month. I am delighted to be able to contribute back through A Dollar A Day to the amazing steem community I have been lucky enough to find myself a part of it.
It would be fantastic if more people join the project as donors this month.
