I just quickly wanted to jot this down. So during your time on Steemit you get to know people, make friends or sometimes you come across someone in desperate need and you want to help them, but your upvote is only a couple of cents.
If you're not able to donate to them directly, the best thing that you can do besides resteeming and upvoting their post, is to do the following:
- Go to the person's profile,
- Select comments and scroll down to their comments that are 6 days old.
- Start upvoting from here.
- You can keep an eye on your voting strength using Steemnow by @penguinpablo. When you get to about 70% voting strength, wait for your power to recharge and then resume upvoting their comments and posts, starting at the oldest first. It's up to you how low you want to take your voting power, 70% is just a guidline.
Using this method you will make sure that they get a bigger payout faster. When someone is waiting to buy medication the 7 days before payout can be an eternity, nevermind the time it takes to withdraw to FIAT and be usable.
I hope that was helpful.
Please go have a look at this post by @davemccoy Want To Help? Donate To Free A Man From His Pain, Help Love Story End Without Pain. It inspired this post.
"This is a message to go out to all my followers to try to help a man named Brian Courteau. He has terminal cancer and is living out his last days in Mexico with his true love @lynncoyle1. Both of them are fantastic people, and I like many, have found their love story both sad and beautiful at the same time."
Hope you have a good day
