I’m donating 25 Bitcoin to good causes – UPDATE

Goal

At the start of December I pledged to donate 25 Bitcoin, 1 each day leading up to Christmas, to a cause suggested by r/Bitcoin. This was done publically in the hope to inspire others to donate too, especially people who have benefited from the rise in price recently.

 

It took a long time to read every comment, private message and to check everyones suggestions. Unfortunately not many suggested charities accept Bitcoin. I am posting this update so people can make suggestions for the last few donations and see a list of causes donated to so far.

 

I am hoping that this post and donations will still encourage others in the community to give Bitcoin to good causes.

 

Get involved

Submit a suggestion in the comments of a cause you would like to see donated to. Also post a link to their Bitcoin donation page (not address) if possible. Even if your suggestion is not donated to by me hopefully it may be seen by others here who may choose to donate.

 

I'll ignore any scams, begging, college fund requests etc.
I don't donate to individuals so please don't post or PM.

If you wish to give but don't have the time to check these posts for suggestions you can send Bitcoin to my address:  

34WbSyrtibUJiFbRa7ukLC8RGdFMnQRn4b  

I will divide the extra Bitcoin sent to that address by 25 and donate it to each of the chosen causes once all my 25 Bitcoin have been donated.

Thanks to the people who have donated to my address so far.

P.S I have not seen any suggestions yet for charities dealing with addiction. It would be great if we could get some suggestions for alcohol, drug or gambling addiction.

I’m donating 5057 BTC to charitable causes! Introducing The Pineapple Fund

Hello!

I remember starting at bitcoin a few years ago. When bitcoin broke single digits for the first time, I thought that was a triumphant moment for bitcoin. I watched and admired the price jump to $ 15.. $ 20.. $ 30.. wow!

Today, I see $ 17,539 per BTC. I still don't believe reality sometimes. Bitcoin has changed my life, and I have far more money than I can ever spend. My aims, goals, and motivations in life have nothing to do with having XX million or being the mega rich. So I'm doing something else: donating the majority of my bitcoins to charitable causes. I'm calling it 🍍 The Pineapple Fund.

Yes, donating ~$ 86 million worth of bitcoins to charities 🙂

So far, The Pineapple Fund has/is:

  • Donated $ 1 million to Watsi, an impressively innovative charity building technology to finance universal healthcare.

  • Donated $ 1 million to The Water Project, a charity providing sustainable water projects to suffering communities in Africa

  • Donating $ 1 million to the EFF, defending rights and privacy of internet users, fighting for net neutrality, and far far more

  • Donated $ 500k to BitGive Foundation, a charity building projects that leverage bitcoin and blockchain technology for global philanthropy.

If you know a registered nonprofit charity, please encourage them to apply on the fund's website! While I prefer supporting registered charities, I am open to supporting charitable causes as well. Check out the website 🙂

🍍 https://pineapplefund.org/

All transactions are posted on the website for full transparency 🙂


edit: Pineapple Fund does not donate to individuals. Please do not post your addresses or PM.

edit 2: Thanks for the gold! Highlighting new comments is a really useful feature <3

What causes seemingly normal transactions to not be confirmed?

I seem to be having an issue with transactions lately. Here is the most recent one. I paid 0.0004 BTC in fees, and I see there are quite a few inputs, but this seems like a normal transaction and should clear. However, I submitted it through a Multibit wallet about 15 hours ago and it has still not been included in a single block. Two other transactions I attempted recently have also been rejected, not even showing up in blockchain.info. What is the problem?

What, generically, is going wrong here and how can it be prevented?
