The A Dollar A Day project began on 1 May.
Since then the project has donated the equivalent of US$ 507 in 12 daily donations to 8 great projects.
The receiving projects have spanned the globe including @schoolforsdg4 and @womenempowerment in Bangladesh, @thegreens in Cameroon, @papilloncharity in South Africa, @bobydimitrov's community garden in Bulgaria, the @intrepidsurfer tree planting project in Peru, @tarc animal rescue centre in the USA, and @familyprotection in North America and around the world.
Fifteen generous steemians have contributed SBDs over the first 12 days the project has been running, and new people are joining all the time.
My great thanks to @aggroed (25 SBD), @cecicastor (5 SBD), @cryptocurator (47 SBD), @danieldyemusic (5 SBD), @deliberator (5 SBD), @discordia (1.902 SBD), @eroche (3 SBD), @gmuxx (10 SBD), @goldendawne (65 SBD), @karenfoster (3 SBD), @mother2chicks (30 SBD), @mountainjewel (2 SBD), @starkerz (7 SBD) and @vibeof100monkeys (8 SBD) who have donated SBDs to the project.
The SBD figures for each of the donators are the total SBDs they have sent to the project for past and future distribution. @goldendawne is donating 2 SBD per day, and @cryptocurator is starting that from 16 May.
In addition to my daily donation of 2 SBD, I am also using post rewards to top up the daily donations to 15 SBD. So far I have donated 69 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.
With the current levels of donations, and if the SBD value doesn't fall further, the A Dollar A Day project should be distributing approaching the equivalent of US $1500 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. Maybe we can get the monthly total up to US$2000 !
@schoolforsdg4 and @womenempowerment in Bangladesh
@schoolforsdg4 has so far received donations of 10 SBD and 15 SBD.
This is an excellent project run by the very hardworking and resourceful @azizbd who has a school for 60 children in a slum area of Sylhet in north eastern Bangladesh. Mohammed @azizbd posts regularly about activities at the school and he has plans to expand the school. I would thoroughly recommend checking out the blogs of both @azizbd and @schoolforsdg4
Donations of 10 SBD and 15 SBD have been sent to @thegreens project in Cameroon.
@thegreens describes itself as a 'Grassroots Youth Environ-Agricultural and Health organization working to connect, inspire and collaborate with young people to foster sustainable development'.
Two donations of 15 SBD have been sent to @familyprotection.
@familyprotection carries out vital work helping families being harassed by "Child Protection" Agencies such as the CPS in the US.
@bobydimitrov's community forest garden
@bobydimitrov in Bulgaria is working with a group of local families to build a community forest garden.
The project began in 2017 and is being developed as funding permits. The donation from A Dollar A Day is being using for equipment for organic pest control.
These projects will be featured in the next update post.
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.
