Join SteemPact! Empowering Change Together – Week #1

in #steempact6 years ago

Hey fellow Steemers,
want to do something meaningful this Week? Then read closely!

SteemPact is going into week #1!


We believe that we steemers can unleash a tremendous power to push things forward. Together with you we want to make the world a better place. Let's empower change together!

What is SteemPact?

Our introduction post.
Each week you are given the opportunity to propose a charity that you think changes the world to the better. In addition to that you can vote on other charities. The charity with the most upvotes (in number, not value) will finally be donated the liquid reward of our weekly post. So your upvote will literally do something good.

What does this mean for steemit?

Each donation will be in the name of the steemit community, so we show the world that we can do something good! Furthermore we will encourage charities to join steemit and get donations in steem. For you this means you will get updates on their progress and can support the ones you like most directly.

How to nominate a charity?

In order to nominate a charity please make a comment on our newest weekly post (we will publish it every monday) telling us more about it.

  • Please make sure that there is a way to contact the charity in order to bring them to steemit.
  • Also include a link to the charity or a page with more information about it.
  • If you state that you donate all rewards of your comment and you win, you get 100 whaleshares sponsored by @officialfuzzy.


  • A charity is anything that you think changes the world to the better.
  • A charity does not necessarily need to be international, your local charity is fine too.
  • In order to prevent fraud we reserve the right to disqualify charities that we believe are not credible. In this case the donation goes to the next charity (second most votes).
  • Donations will only be payed out in steem.
  • Charities need to have a dedicated steemit account to ensure transparency.
  • We will release proof of every donation on the blockchain.
  • Nominating your own charity is allowed but should be disclaimed.
  • The liquid part of the rewards (50 %) of our weekly posts will completely be donated to the winning charity.
  • The vesting part of the rewards (the other 50 %) of our weekly posts will strenghten the @steempact account and thereby allowing us to support future charities by voting them up with more power. Should we power down the account, that will go to charity too.
  • The rewards of the comments will go to the persons nominating the respective charities. They are free to donate it (and can win whaleshares doing so).

I want to support this! How?

  • Upvote this post. Now you already have donated.
  • Look in the comments for charities you like and upvote them.
  • Nominate a charity you think is good.
  • Join our steemtrail (see below).

I want to support all posts you ever make! How?

We offer a steemtrail that you can follow. All upvotes from @steempact are for a good cause, so supporting the trail makes you automatically support good causes. We are also partnering with SteemVoter to make a @steempact guild available in the future. In the meantime you can use SteemVoter to autoupvote our project.

I want to throw money at you! How?

Please consider throwing money at one of the charities instead:

  • Send STEEM or SBD to @steempact.
  • In the memo write one of these:
    • The link to one of our posts. We will add it to the donated amount.
    • The link to a comment for a charity. We will donate it to that charity, but we will add it to the post if there are problems (see rules above).
    • Write anything else and we will try to find a suitable charity to donate it to.

Who is behind this?

@robofox and @reggaemuffin are running this account. We are supported and vouched for by witness @thecryptodrive. We will happily answer all your questions!


Thanks to @epicdesigns for the epic design of our @steempact brand!
Thanks to @thecryptodrive for supporting us all the way!
Thanks to @officialfuzzy for sponsering the whaleshares to bring users to donating their part too!



thanks a lot @steempact for encouraging me to nominate our conservation program.

We are Kedjom-Keku, People of the forest. Join us to save Misty Mountain Forest in Cameroon!

Our goal is to save and restore 1000 hectares of Misty Mountain Forest (called Abongphen Highland Forest) by 2025.

Our main objectives are protection and restoration of forest, raising education and awareness, improving of living standards of locals and research & ecotourism.

The Abongphen Highland Forest (misty mountain type) lies in the Kedjom-Keku area, whose name translates to the People of the Forest. It is a source of drinking water for millions of people and it is the natural habitat of the most threatened chimpanzee subspecies, the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee, as well as hundreds of other endemic organisms of the Bamenda Highlands. Due to unsustainable development practices, the forest currently covers a mere 2% of its original area.


I like what this project strives for. Is there any official website or something with more information about it? And would you like to add information about if you plan to donate the liquid earnings of your comment to the project too?

Thanks, there is FB page on our profile. This is our website Unfortunatelly it is not updated. But if you wait for 2 weeks you find our new updated website. All earnings are going for the project so even liquid.

Great :) Thanks for adding this!

Thanks for your participation, @kedjom-keku! Great job :)

I thank you for the opportunity.

Nice project, I can relate to this, I am owner of the sports publishing project @steemsports. Great work on this!

thanks a lot. I am really grateful for your support.
Anyone interested in our other stuff? Check out our Football4Nature Conservation Champions league to save Abongphen Highland Forest. We would like to provide you unusual experience of each match. But we need internet data which are quite expensive in Cameroon. If we earn at least 150$ we will upload 5 minutes highlight of each from 45 planned conservation matches. Anything above will be directed to tree planting to restore the forest.

each 1$ = 1 tree planted

wow its a beautiful place! :O

wow that can be really hard .. there are so many valueable cahrities, that choosing one per week may be too little :D just by browsing the comments ... nevertheless i want to introduce you to sadhana forest
they work for the motto

"give a poor person food, and he´ll have something to eat for one day. give him a tree, and he´s fed for life"

this is their homepage
you can contact them there ... they have forests in india, kenya, haiti
their latest project is kenya, and it´s huge

i know the founder in person, his name is Aviram .. he´s commited to sadhana forest with all his heart since 10 years now...
I state that I´ll donate all rewards of my comment in case sadhana forest wins.

Thanks for nominating @flurgx! Let's start by this and see later on if we can support more projects at a time in the future :) Great to have you here!

I love Heifer International.
They're mission is to end world hunger and poverty.
Our donations contribute to women's empowerment and social capital in third world countries.

When I make personal donations, I like to purchase the animals.

These animals generate income, food and milk, and better the environment.

I'm really proud to be a contributor they are doing great things!

I'd happily donate 100% of this comment!

That is really good! I like that it is not a one time thing but animals that pay dividends for years to come!

Awesome! Really seems to be a long term and sustainable way of support. Like it.

Thanks for your contribution, @aaronsthilaire! A very example of how to nominate a charity on @steempact :)

Thanks for opening up the doors of giving! :D

Fabulous idea!

The most grateful things has always i said thanks to, i found the people who cares about each other like they care about themselves.

Hi @steempact!

I've made a post about them, see it here:

I'm still trying to convince them to open up an account on Steemit. So I'll be sending all the earnings from that post to them.

Hope they'll get your support as well. You can contact them through Facebook messaging.


Thanks a lot for your contribution and engagement, @cryptodog! We'll check that out.

That's so harrowing and heartbreaking! And in the same time deeply touching to see what is possible when people stop to ignore but begin to do something. Great initiative! Upvoted!

Hi @steempact I would like to put forward the Cape Of Good Hope SPCA horse unit.
They are an amazing group of people who I am involved with that give a safe place to so many animals that need it.

Cool I hail from South Africa myself :)

Brilliant! I see we're on the same plan here. Upvoted and following. With @adra we have the perfect partner to kickstart this ; )

I'm a bit biased to be honest, but let me nominate @adra:
Everyone, check their introcution post:

Thank you! We are glad you joined steemit and hope to really make a dent in this world :)

i just invited Stephen to join Steemit with his Foundation , they are doing "small " things to make life easier for the needed ones in South Africa . I met Stephen on 2 years ago where we also had the ability to make money from our posts and to donate.

they just arrived on Steemit still strugeling with how things work here .

Thank you for your submissions. Please make one comment per charity and follow tha guidelines. That means writing a small text to give users an overview of what they are voting for. And please state if you will donate your comment rewards or not.

my bad :( about donating comment rewards no idea how that works or how many that would be only started 3 days ago on steemit

See @aaronsthilaire post for a good example of how to submit an entry :)

deleted for now

I have resteemed this and I hope it will make a lot of impact and touch many lives. Kudos

Thank you very much for your support, @opanyin! :)

That is beyond awesome. I will be resteeming and following to see this. Can think of several worthy charities I would like to nominate. Love it. Using cyrpto for positive change. :-)

Great to have you on board, @exavier :) And many thanks for your kind support! :)
