Everyone talks about the #GivingTuesday initiative that takes place every year since 2012, but how many of them are actually giving to a good cause? I can guarantee it’s not everyone.
It’s one thing to say you support the #GivingTuesday initiative and its another to actually give something up for a good cause, or do something good.
I myself am guilty of supporting #GivingTuesday by simply spreading awareness but not actually giving anything to charity or a good cause.
This year, however, is different. I decided to donate crypto to charity through The Giving Block – a company offering the only nonprofit specific solution for accepting cryptocurrency donations.
If anyone else is interested in donating crypto directly to charities they can find a whole bunch of them in this list.
Now, aside from donating myself, I decided to do something to make up for all the years I didn't fully participate in #GivingTuesday. I wrote this blog post outlining how YOU can easily donate crypto to charity today, without even owning any crypto!
Find out how below:
Use Brave To Participate in #GivingTuesday
If you are already using Brave browser – the privacy-preserving browser that rewards you with BAT for seeing ads while browsing – then you are just a few clicks away from supporting the charity(es) of your choice.
Now, if you don’t have Brave yet, what are you waiting for? You can get it now, here and benefit from 3-6x faster browsing speeds, preserve your privacy, earn BAT when you sign up for Brave Rewards, tip your favorite content creators, and donate to charity.
If you ask me, the Brave browser is a no brainer. Trust me, you’ll love it!
Once you’re a Brave user (if you weren’t already) head to this list of verified charities with Brave: https://batgrowth.com/publishers/charities.
Let’s say you have picked www.lupus.org – here’s what you need to do next:
Head over to the top right corner of your browser and click on the BAT token logo:
Next, click ‘SEND A TIP’ button which will activate an elegant popup message:
After you choose the amount you are comfortable with, click the ‘SEND MY TIP’ button and you are all set! A thank you message will show up on your screen with a confirmation that you have made the donation:
You can follow the same process for every single charity website listed here: https://batgrowth.com/publishers/charities
Given how easy it is to donate/tip crypto with Brave, there should be no excuses why you cannot participate in #GivingTuesday this year. You don’t even have to own any crypto to make a donation. Just earn some BAT by spending some time browsing on Brave and when you receive your BAT reward, follow the steps above to donate to a charity of your choice.
Even if you don’t earn BAT in time for #GivingTuesday, you can always donate/tip at a later date whenever you want.
