Twitter - Follow Campaign
$141 - 38,247 impressions - 301 Follows ($0.47 cost per Follow)

Google - Click Campaign
$167.66 - 6,920 impressions, 163 Clicks ($1.03 cost per Click)

Spent $308.66

For Google I need to utilize negative keywords more, I think the cost per click is kind of expensive, I would like to try a display  (awareness) campaign (CPM) next and I will need a good graphic design

For Twitter I think the cost per follower is cheap and we should keep utilizing it, but I would also like to do an Awareness campaign (CPM)

NOTE: CPM = cost per 1,000 impressions

Also good news, Facebook responded back, the next step is proving that we own website
Production Proposals / Recurring Expenses - BLOOM Sponsorships
« Last post by orphandefender on August 04, 2018, 09:45:42 am »
Hello all,

Thank you for all your support thus far! We have been sending 10 kids to school (with uniforms, tuition, shelter, food) in Uganda and feeding 4 in Sierra Leone with our second round of funding for 3 months of sponsorship. We'd like to continue sending these kids to school and providing their food/shelter for the next 3 months (Aug-Oct). This is a follow up proposal to my first one where these children were funded.

Here are links to their photos/thank you notes which is updated whenever we get messages and updates from Uganda and Sierra Leone.

These are the kids that I'm requesting 3 more months of sponsorship for:

Rania- Uganda - 5 yrs old
Hakim- Uganda- 9 yrs old
Favor- Uganda- 8 yrs old
Praise- Uganda - 7 yrs old
Isaac- Uganda- 4 yrs old
Laira- Uganda - 10 yrs old
Musigale- Uganda - 10 yrs old
Sharon- Uganda - 10 yrs old
Sylvia- Uganda- 12 yrs old
Edrine- Uganda - 13 yrs old
Aminata D- Sierra Leone
Foday K- Sierra Leone
Mohammed- Sierra Leone
Mabinty- Sierra Leone

Here's a reminder as to the programs these children are part of:

A. Our Side by Side Ministries Program rescues children from abusive situations in the Rakai, Uganda area where they are at risk of being beaten, raped, and neglected by unofficial "foster" families and other negligent guardians. Our team rescues the child, then transfers them to a Christian boarding school while looking for extended family reunification opportunities or a Christian foster family. The cost to sponsor a child for boarding school is $88 per month and it includes all their private school fees, room and board, uniforms, food, medical care, hair cuts, etc.

I would like to request 1,734,559 BBP ($2640) to cover those 10 children for 3 more months of this year.

B. Our Sierra Leone Sponsorship program provides 3 healthy meals per day for the children, including while they are at school, every day each month for $36/mo. These children attend a school at the orphanage, so there are no extra boarding/schooling costs for them. These are children orphaned from poverty and the remnants of the Ebola outbreak that happened there a few years ago.

I am requesting 283,837 BBP ($432) to feed 4 children 3 meals daily for 3 months in Sierra Leone.

I'm also requesting if BBP can sponsor their 4 Sierra Leone kids for their annual school fees which have increased, supplies and uniforms/shoes at $40/each. The kids start school in September. Their current sponsorship doesn't cover school fee increases and uniforms/shoes, only food. This total is 78,843 BBP / $120.

You can read more about our sponsorship programs here

In sum, I'm requesting:
1,734,559 BBP ($2640) to cover 10 children in emergency status for 3 months in Rakai, Uganda
283,837 BBP ($432) to feed 4 children at the Sierra Leone orphanage for 3 months
78,843 ($120) to cover the 4 Sierra Leone kids' school uniforms/fees/supplies
Total Request: 2,097,239 BBP
Production Proposals / Recurring payment for Kairos Children's Fund Scholars
« Last post by AndrewScribner on August 04, 2018, 06:54:02 am »
In June KCF (Kairos Children's Fund) received 365,000BBP, which was used to sponsor 10 children for 3 months (June to August), as well as help provide rice to the families. Although the sponsorships are until the end of August, I would like to pre-pay the scholarship for another 3 months if possible.
Since the next superblock is due in September, I'd like to get this proposal out as soon as possible.
The monthly amount per child is $20 for elementary students or $22 for high school students. We have 5 elementary and 5 high school students at the moment, so the cost is $200 per month. You can see the details below or on the website.

1. I would like to ask for 300,000BBP.
2. This would help us also with the rice allowance (given monthly per child) and pre-pay scholars for another few months.
3. This will also help us to pay for some school expenses for both high school and elementary

You can see our new website here                                        <-- More information about the sponsorship                                                       <--- Biblepay scholars

I will attach below the original proposal with background information on KCF.
   Andrew Scribner

Hi! My name is Andrew Scribner, and I am a pastor in the Philippines. I'm an American, from Maine, USA.

We have a program called Kairos Children's Fund. We primarily provide sponsorships for kids to go to school.

Education in the Philippines is not free - tuition is, but there are a lot of expenses. There are miscellaneous fees, then parents must provide lunches, transportation, uniforms, and homework.
Many of the children from poor families either don't go school at all, because parents can't afford these things. Many kids go to school walking, and often don't get enough to eat. They often get poor grades because they are bullied, hungry, or ashamed. (I have more information on our FB page (see below)

We provide an allowance for the kids, and we also pay school fees. We have a volunteer who visits the school, pays the fees, and checks on the children.

The cost for an elementary child is $20 a month, while a high school child (grades 9-12) is $22 (this is based on the current exchange rate)

From that, we give a weekly allowance and pay their "miscellaneous fees."

My proposal is for a sponsorship of 5 elementary, and 5 high school children:

Since there are nice months left in the school year the cost per child would be:
elementary $20 x 9 = $180
high school $22 x 9 = $198

elementary $180 x 5 =    $900
high school $198 x 5 =    $990
total                               = $1,890

If it would also be ok, we could make it a flat $2k if the community wants to donate to the rice allowance, which we call the "Bugas nga Gasa" (meaning rice gift)

We have a rice gift which we give to families. I propose that 110 would go to the rice allowance, which we call the "Bugas nga Gasa" (meaning rice gift)

This could be spread out over a couple of superblocks, since we don't need the money all at once.

You could take a look at our Facebook page ( or by joining our messenger community (type: @kairoschildrensfund). We are working on a website as soon as possible.

I have been in touch with Jaap Geurts van Kessel about this. We have exchanged several emails this and last week.

Please see our FB page and join our messenger group. You may email me with any questions at

By the way, I love the Biblepay concept, and I love how it is community driven (including sponsorships.)
I also think the transparency of the whole system is great.

By the way, $22 is about Php1,100.
We give Php900 to cover their daily needs.
       Php100 will cover any misc. school fees.
The exess P100 helps us with overhead.

Thank you!
   Andrew Scribner

Discussion and Suggestions / Twitter summary cards
« Last post by sunk818 on August 01, 2018, 11:23:56 am »
It has come to my attention that the images auto-selected by Twitter for is not ideal.

You will see BiblePay's default is a money bag. See attachment. Not a good look on Twitter.

If you look at as an example, they have a filipino girl as the card image.

We can set a different image for Twitter to use. This is explained in more detail here:

This is what's code looks like. You put the meta tags in the head section before the body tag:

<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image" />
<meta name="twitter:description" content="Make helping the poor part of your legacy. Start by sponsoring a child today." />
<meta name="twitter:title" content="Sponsor a Child - Compassion International" />
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@compassion" />
<meta name="twitter:domain" content="" />
<meta name="twitter:image:src" content="" />
<meta name="twitter:creator" content="@compassion" />

Worse case, an image like this is certainly better than the money bag:

Ideally, a custom image that fits the square and summarizes the goal of BiblePay would be better. An image that conveys Jesus call to help the poor.

Thank you for your response. It reminds me of Ben Franklin, ďAn ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."  Please point me to web sites with further research. I can educate myself and hopefully use it as a way to counter others if this point is brought up. Prevention is a difficult area because you can't quantitatively say x number of children were saved from being orphaned, as opposed to helping orphans after the fact. I believe using the term "poor children" is better understood outside of the industry and is inclusive of orphans.

BiblePay Foundation might be "Publisher" in the future?

Legal Formation of The BiblePay Foundation

Yes, that could be a good idea. We would need to purchase a full apple dev enterprise license instead an individual one, but we would have that part covered and would also be entitled for private app distributions.
