[CONTEST] A Dollar A Day charitable giving project : What can you buy for 1 SBD?
The A Dollar A Day project is based on the simple idea of people donating one Steem Backed Dollar (SBD) each day. And those SBDs are pooled to give to a bigger donation to a good cause around the world each day.
It works on the 'little and often' principle - it easier to give a small amount regularly rather than a large amount as a one-off. So far the project has donated the equivalent of over US$3000.
Of course for different people in different countries that one SBD will have a lot of different values and different impacts.
I am fortunate enough to live in relatively wealthy country - Great Britain. One SBD is currently worth about 77p.
For 77p you can buy a packet of cheap chocolate biscuits.
So each day to donate 1 SBD I have to give up the equivalent of a packet of biscuits.
I am happy to do that as I know that 1 SBD, when pooled together with donations from other steemians, can make a whole lot more impact in some other part of the world.
But I don't know what that 1 SBD is worth, or what it can buy, in other countries.
CONTEST : What can you buy for one 1 SBD?
I would love to know what 1 SBD can buy in different countries around the world.
So I am running a simple contest to find out.
To enter all you have to do is make a post giving an example, or examples, of what you can buy for the equivalent in your currency of 1 SBD.
If you can include photographs that will be great. If you can include a price tag in a shop even better.
Once you have made the post put a link to it in the comments of this post, or any follow-up contest posts.
I will try to give an upvote on all posts that follow the rules below.
The contest will run initially for two weeks - although I may extend it to run throughout August if it gets enough interest.
At the end of each week I will choose the best post and that will win a full vote once a day from all my accounts (10,000+ SP) for one week.
RULES & HOW TO ENTER
Make a post giving one or more examples of what you can buy in your country for the local currency equivalent of 1 SBD.
Include a photo of the item(s) and ideally include some evidence of the cost such a price tag in a shop, an advert or online price screenshot.
Show the value of 1 SBD in US dollars on the day you do the post, and the conversion of that US dollar amount to your local currency.
Put a link to your post in the comments below, or any on follow-up contest posts.
Upvote and resteem this post.
PRIZES & CLOSING DATE
This contest will initially run for 2 weeks until midnight UTC on 15 August 2018, but may be extended throughout August if there is enough interest.

Once a week a winning post will be selected and the winner will receive a 100% upvote once a day for a week from all my accounts (10,000+ SP).
