A Dollar A Day charitable giving project update : US$ 1000 in donations distributed in 27 days

in charity •  2 years ago 

Today we reached the equivalent of US$1000 in donations distributed through A Dollar A Day since the project started on 1 May.

I am totally blown away by this.

When I ran the first round of this project last November / December it took around 6 weeks to reach US$1000 in donations - and that was when SBDs were worth around US$10.

I am truly thankful to all the exceptional members of the steem community who have made donations to the project. Your kindness has demonstrated the power of steem to make the world a better place.


This past week two great new projects have been added to the 10 projects already receiving funds from A Dollar A Day.

The Children's Football Project run by SteemChurch Venezuela (@sc-v) has received 15 SBD so far, as has The Awesome SMILE Project run by @indayclara in the Philippines.

Alongside these two new projects A Dollar A Day has been donating to @schoolforsdg4 (55 SBD) and @womenempowerment (30 SBD) in Bangladesh, @thegreens (25 SBD) in Cameroon, @papilloncharity (45 SBD) in South Africa, @bobydimitrov's community garden (30 SBD) in Bulgaria, the @intrepidsurfer tree planting project (15 SBD) in Peru, Project Dudeland run by @bigdude in Venezuela (45 SBD), projects run by @malos10 and @rapo in Venezuela (15 SBD), @tarc animal rescue centre (45 SBD) in the USA, and @familyprotection (60 SBD) in North America and around the world.



Twenty-two generous steemians have so far contributed SBDs to A Dollar A Day and to everyone one of them I am extremely grateful.

My great thanks to @aggroed, @boyerobert, @cecicastor, @cryptocurator, @danieldyemusic, @deliberator, @discordia, @dreemit, @eroche, @gmuxx, @goldendawne, @hungryhustle, @karenfoster, @mother2chicks, @mountainjewel, @nikolina, @redrica, @sirlunchthehost, @starkerz, @steemcommunity, @vibeof100monkeys and @yensesa who have donated SBDs to the project so far.

I would like to give special thanks to @goldendawne who has increased her daily donation to 3 SBD, to @cryptocurator who is now giving 2 SBD each day, and to @steemcommunity witness (run by @abh12345 and @paulag) who has committed to give ongoing support to the project.

In addition to my regular daily donation, I am also using post rewards to top up the daily donations to 15 SBD. I have so far donated 121 SBD in total.

Thanks also to @hopehuggs who is supporting the project by giving daily donations directly to people in Venezuela.

Special thanks also to @ausbitbank, @beanz, @canadian-coconut, @eturnerx, @markwhittam, @roxane and @starkerz for their generous upvotes on the project posts. These are being recycled back into enhancing the daily donations.

Unfortunately the SBD value has dropped further but with the current levels of donations the A Dollar A Day project should still be distributing the equivalent of around US $1100 in the first month.

If anyone else would like to join in the project donating 1 SBD each day, even if only for a few days, it would be great to have you on board.



The Awesome SMILE Project run by @indayclara in the Philippines

The Awesome SMILE Project is an initiative to help children living in poverty, particularly street children in Cebu, Philippines.

The project is run by @indayclara in coordination with @jassennessaj and in partnership with @steemph.cebu.

The first activity of the project is being run in conjunction with the Luis Amigo Ladies Dormitory who provide a safe haven for street kids. The Awesome SMILE Project is providing food, clothes, shoes, hygiene products and also art materials and books for the children.



The Children's Football Project run by SteemChurch Venezuela (@sc-v)

Because of the deteriorating economic situation in Venezuela many sports clubs have had to close down.

Steemchurch Venezuela (represented by @darlenys01) and the Vastago Foundation have joined together to sponsor the San Celestino Futbol Club. They will be providing equipment and kit for children to continue to play football at the club.



A Dollar A Day is continuing to regularly support the @familyprotection project founded and run by @canadian-coconut and @markwhittam, @papilloncharity in South Africa, @schoolforsdg4 and @womenempowerment run by @azizbd in Bangladesh, Project Dudeland run by @bigdude in Venezuela, projects run by @malos10 and @rapo also in Venezuela and @tarc animal rescue centre run by @rhondak in the USA.





I am also actively looking for new projects to support. I am currently appraising several new projects. I would particularly welcome new projects in countries where A Dollar A Day has not yet made any donations.


If you know of any other good causes on steemit that we might donate to please contact me.

And if you would like to join the project by donating 1 SBD each day, for even a few days, do let me know.

We only need 55 pairs of shoes to reach the goal of 100 pairs of new shoes, which will be delivered to the communities that need it most in Venezuela.

We are very happy to be able to help with this project.

Keep up the good work.

I am 100% sure of that, and as I have already told you my good friend, I am very grateful for the support, in the next few days we will be delivering the shoes, I am just waiting for my last publications to be collected to buy some shoes more, before they go up in price. @pennsif

A Dollar A Day sent you another donation of 15 SBD yesterday. Hope you can buy some more shoes with that.

Hi @pennsif

You've done a great job of gathering an impressive list of supporters here.

I appreciate the time you have put into the appraisal of the projects currently supported, and for those on the list to look at.

Fine work :)

Great to hear as always @pennsif! Do I still have money in the kitty as it were? 💯🐒

Hi @vibeof100monkeys, thank you for your support for the project so far. Your previous donation has all been used up. It would be great if you would like to donate any more.

Dear Friend @pennsif,
Great job as always! So glad so many people are pitching in to help those needing it the most. 🐓🐓

Thank you for all your support for A Dollar A Day. We have managed to distribute over US$1100 equivalent in the first month. If you would like to continue to support the project in June that would be great.

Pleasure :)

How can I participate in this? I'm doing okay, so I'd like to make some more donations.

@steevc you just send your donations to @pennsif

Cool. I've done that

That is great, thank you.

Thank you @yensesa

Hi Steve, that will be great thank you.

Yes, as @yensesa mentions, you can send the SBDs for a week, month or whatever period you want to donate for, to my account @pennsif, with a memo stating it is for A Dollar A Day.

I'll do it when I have the funds. I've run down my SBD, but should have some more coming in soon. You are doing something great. I'll post about it

👍

I found another one for you: https://steemit.com/upfundme/@yanzel4lyf/upfundme-help-me-repair-my-classhome

Hi @phoenixwren, thank you for this lead - it does look like a very worthwhile project to support.

What an amazing initiative @pennsif! Thank you for continuously supporting community projects. Wish you all the best with #adollaraday! :)

Thank you, we are happy to help.

It's great what they do, I'm excited to see the children laugh with joy .. Thank you for supporting unconditionally.

👍

Beautiful! that's how a better world is built. Money and food are squandered by those who have more and most people and especially children go hungry and need. If everything were distributed equally we would have a better and more egalitarian world.

I am very happy to know that there are people around the world giving a helping hand to those who need it

Thank you - I will look forward to reading more about your project.

This is what we all need to put in place for the less privileged to make life meaningful and worth living. Great work, I pray all the resources spent will be fully recover in 100 fold. Life is short, putting a smile on one's face is the greatest footprint that will be remembered. More grease to your elbow.
