Why donate to @steemaid?

Once you've read our previous posts outlining the aims and how the money will be split up, you should have a good idea of what we stand for.

While working in humanitarian aid, founder @sammarkjames experienced the pros and cons of large organisations and the problems that come with heavy process and layers of stakeholders. The value they can bring is there but the inefficiency and waste of funds pushes the balance the other way on occasions. It can start at lack of experience in their staff on the ground but there are many many problems further up too, the simple fact that many are bloated and slow moving.

In his experience it’s the smaller grassroots charities who, with the right backing, can achieve a lot and fast! Taking Bridge2 as a case in point.

That's all well and good but what next?

The plans for @steemaid are humble for now, to gauge how Steemit reacts and to gain our feet. The first project will be announced shortly, stay tuned…
