A Dollar A Day charitable giving project update : Delegations, Autovoter & a second meaning for A Dollar A Day

in adollaraday •  last year 

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.


Delegations

Very shortly after the @adollaraday account was set up @cryptocurator kindly made the first delegation to the account of 100 SP.

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.



Autovoter

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 :

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.



Donations update

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.

I've sent you another week's worth. My rewards have dropped a bit lately, so I may not be able to do this every week and still power up. I'll delegate some SP to help you out

Hi Steve, thank you very much indeed for your donation, and the delegation. Very much appreciated.

See the work that you just did (and what are you doing) ... It causes a very rewarding feeling, which mixes with joy and a cocktail of feelings. It is admirable the great work that you are carrying out through your foundation A DOLLAR A DAY, I am very happy about the truth.

For me it will always be a pride, a reason for joy and happiness, to find your post where you will be bringing love, hope and joy to those who need it most.

Congratulations from the most sincere of my heart, keep going!

And I know that I can not give you the monetary support that is so necessary to achieve these things, but believe me I will always be sending the best vibes and wishing you the best so that each of the ideas that you are piling up in that tower, come true one by one.

!! Congratulations!! my friend. @pennsif

Thank you for believing in me and what I do, I want you to know that I will leave the name of the foundation at the top of Steemit. @adollaraday

A Dollar A Day is very happy to support the great work you are doing.

Thanks @pennsif for your unconditional support, I hope you continue with this beautiful work of @adollaraday, it is exciting and at the same time very nice to see communities that are receiving that support when they need it most. From Venezuela we show gratitude and we wish a lot of success, the best is yet to come, keep going. Blessings."

Just love this project. I will put more in dreckly just build up again. Thanks for your sterling work 💯🐒

That will be great, thank you.

@adollaraday, I gave you an upvote on your first post! Please give me a follow and I will give you a follow in return!

Please also take a moment to read this post regarding bad behavior on Steemit.

Funny how this comment looks like exactly the sort of thing you shouldn't do...

But it is a bot Steve, so pathetic but funny.

I will support this account with my tiny upvote, a resteem to Nigeria at large and a tiny donation of 0.200 SBD every week for a month depending on the steem price. It may increase as time goes by..
