We will use these Tribe Updates as a public update for tribe members, but also a transparent newsletter for the Chief Council. If you haven’t seen the introduction or the previous update , please read those first.
New Rule for the Curation-Room
We are making changes to the curation-room . now when you post in that room, you must vote on one of the posts before yours. It will be a bit difficult to monitor so please add an 👍 or some kind emoji 😃 so I can see it. This is an effort to create more interaction so commenting would really be appreciated as well, but we wouldn't want spammy comments so we just encourage you to comment if anything meaningful comes to mind.
Thank you for this suggestion, @mrprofessor!🙏 It has already made so much more interaction in the community! Plus all the emojis just make the curation-room more interesting to look at!😍 Certain people have chosen certain emojis to show they were there 🐿️, some just add to the number of the upvote emojis or anything in between, but the upvotes and comments on each others post are what it is really about! ❤
Causes We Support
In the last update, I mentioned that we would be supporting certain charitable causes and giving members a chance to allocate part of their delegation to support these causes. Because I have just started this initiative no one has had enough time to give any support to these causes, yet.
I am starting things off by delegating 5000 SP to go towards auto voting organizational accounts and also upping the percentage of the auto vote for our 3 Venezuelan tribe members.
In order to raise the percentages of those upvotes and keep voting power high enough, we will need more Steemians to step up and delegate for those causes! Any amount of delegation towards any of the causes we support would be greatly appreciated!
You might noticed that we are heavy on causes that support Venezuela. That's because we recently scoured the Venezuelan community to do the Spread the Love #14 :: VENEZUELA EDITION
First 5 Causes We Are Officially Supporting
Freedom Tribe is currently able to auto vote on these projects thanks to generous delegators like @happymoneyman and @immarojas! Please check out these awesome organizations and consider donating STEEM/SBD or upvoting for a good cause!
|@tarc||Helping homeless dogs in Central Appalachia.|
|@adollaraday||A Dollar A Day is charitable giving project based on daily donations of 1 SBD per day. The project was founded by @pennsif in November 2017.|
|@littledisciples||We are a group of young people working for Venezuelan children and families.|

I would like to start seeing Growth Fund Proposals
We have liquid STEEM and SBD continuing to grow in the @freedomtribe and @steemamor accounts. We have many different options for those funds including: powering them up, donating to causes we support, and/or anything that will grow the tribe and our mission in a healthy, sustainable way.
Specifically, I would like to see detailed proposals that show accounting for the proposed use of the budget. You could submit a full plan with in-depth accounting for everything or a proposal for a specific idea along with how much of the budget you want to fund it with.
We have come together under some basic core values and now that we have enough active members to get started, let’s share our ideas on how to move forward.
Because of the upvotes @freedomtribe has received from @tribesteemup and the 1000 SP delegations from @happymoneyman and @immarojas, I have decided to delegated 5000 SP to get the support started for these worthy projects. That puts us over 10,000 SP!
