We are all devastated about the recent fires near Athens. As you already know a lot of people, including young children lost their lives. Those that were lucky to survive watched their houses, cars, properties burn into flames. There are no words to express the horror. The stories that we hear on the news are unbelievable. There is absolutely a huge need to support our fellow human beings in these difficult times.
Some good fellows from the Bitshares community took the initiative to create an account to raise funds to donate. You can read their post here
I took also the initiative to raise funds via CONSTRUCTION token. You can buy some via bitshares DEX to support the cause.
So far Construction token only had one VERY GENEROUS contribution from our beloved well known Rockstar the one and only @onceuponatime. Thank you very much my friend! I appreciate this a lot! I am really grateful. Everyone knows that you always give give give and never ask anything in return.

A number of well-known members of the bitshares community are in discussions about how to make these donations more efficient, transparent for everyone, legally compliant, fast and efficient. I would like to express my gratitude to the @easydex team, @clockwork, @hairycanary, @dalexx, john Robert for trying to provide solutions for these and any future donations.
I am really touched with the philanthropy of my fellow Bitsharians. Bitshares is a great community with amazing members. Please consider to make a donation for the victims of the fire via the Bitshares alternatives so we can make some noise to the world. Let’s make people realize that cryptocurrencies can be effectively used for good causes with full transparency.
Please upvote, share and resteem this post. It goes without saying that any proceeds from this post will be sent to one of the above mentioned accounts dedicated to the victims of the fire.
Again thank you all very much! I really hope that no one ever experience anything like that ever again.
I have been thinking a lot where to donate the funds raised from Construction token. Finally today I have completed the last transfer. A total of EURO 3,000 (equivalent. of circa USD 3,500) were sent with reference "bitshares community donation" as follows:
EURO 1,000 to the dedicated account of Bank of Greece
EURO 1,000 to the Greek Red Cross
EURO 1,000 to the Lyrio Children foundation that was burned down. This institution is an orphanage with more than 45 children.
I would like to thank again very much @onceuponatime who is the only contributor so far. Since he is the only contributor I will provide proof of transfer funds to him only.
I really hope that further contributions are received from other members or at least that you guys can send directly some funds to any account of your choice to help the cause.
