As my followers know I have been resteeming some posts from a couple of wonderful programs, in hopes of raising funds for their well deserving programs. I have stated in my writing that I would donate all my earnings to each of those programs. I found it difficult to calculate my actual earnings so I used the earnings from the post to calculate what I would send...(in the event anyone can tell me an easy way to calculate actual earnings from resteeming, commenting, and even posting please let me know).
I will start with @schoolforsdg4. I already sent 30 Steem in anticipation of what I might bring in from resteeming and upvoting comments. In order to make things a little easier I used the following:
Past Payouts $43.73
- Author $34.18
(17.09 SBD, 5.17 SP)
- Curators $9.55
I converted all that to what it would equal in stem at today's prices and came up with 34.813 steem. Because of the complexity in trying to compute accurately I am probably sending more than I personally received. So before this is posted I will send that amount of steem to @schoolforsdg4 as an additional donation. So they received 30 steem from me and now I am sending 34.813 steem. In my heart I know they can use the resources. I am impressed with the response I have gotten from my followers. I personally want to say "THANK YOU" for supporting such an important program.
This from my wallet and should be found in @schoolforsdg4's wallet:
Transfer 34.813 STEEM to schoolforsdg4 "This donation is in addition to my earlier one. I had wrote when I resteemed one of your posts that I would donate my earnings. I found it difficult to accurately compute that , so I think I found a solution that will provide you with additional steem. Keep up the good work".
Next up is the post that @lindahas did on behalf of @schoolforsdg4, and I resteemed it for her in hopes of gaining a wider audience. I also wrote I would donate my earnings from resteeming her post to @schoolforsdg4. Again I found it difficult to compute my earning so I used the same method as I did above, which I believe @schoolforsdg4 will receive a higher amount for the donation. Thank you @lindahas for allowing me the privilege to resteem your post. I hope many of my followers will follow you as well...
Past Payouts $23.51
- Author $18.13
(9.06 SBD, 2.74 SP)
- Curators $5.38
I converted this to Steem and will send it to @schoolforsdg4 before posting current article. It came to 20.07 steem.
If anyone can see a flaw in how I am calculating all the earnings please let me know. My ego is not on the line. This program is too important for me not to accept construction criticism. You will find the following in my wallet and @schoolforsdg4 wallet:
Receive 20.070 STEEM from r2cornell "This donation is what earnings took place after I resteemed a post of @lindahas, who is one of your supporters. It was a Privilege to meet her and aid her in her fundraising for you".
Next up is @womenempowerment which was also started by @azizbd. I resteemed one of their post on the same premise. Again I would like to thank everyone who participated in this fundraising. Even if you did not have Steem Power to have much of an effect, your participation was and is vital.
Again I converted this to Steem and will send it to @womenempowerment before posting current article. It came to 13.09 steem. I used the following:
Past Payouts $16.02
- Author $12.86
(6.43 SBD, 1.94 SP)
- Curators $3.16
I have decided to double the 13.09 steem donation seeing there were less earnings for this resteem. Teaching these women the skills to better care for themselves, and their family is vital. I feel as strongly about this program as I do @schoolforsdg4.
**As a foot note: For the past 38 years I have worked with the homeless, disadvantaged, and disabled. My work involved evaluating vocational potential of the people I served. In addition to evaluating them I also worked with them to help them find a career direction to better support themselves. In addition to these years I have worked in human services for the past 48 years. I enjoyed all of it, yet working with people to help them vocationally was a most enjoyable and rewarding work. That is why I am so impressed with @azizbd's work. Sir I bow to you...it is heartwarming to see what you have done and will continue to do. Nameste'
The following you will find in my wallet, as well as @womenempowerment's wallet:
Transfer 26.180 STEEM to womenempowerment : "Here is money I raised by resteeming one of your post. I did the best to compute what I raised and believe this amount exceeds that. I thank you for providing me with this opportunity to do this. Nameste'".
I will wrap this long post up for now. It appears long, although I wanted to inform all of you how things went and how I handled my earnings. Again I wish to thank all of you for being involved in this effort. I believe both programs are vital to Bangladesh and its people. I hope that those of you that can afford it will continue to support the two programs. I saw that @lindahas has completed another post. I plan on resteeming that post soon.
