Now I see I forgot about this part of your post from more than a month ago, but this goes to show I was thinking the same thing. So what happened with this suggestion (and your concurrence)? :)

Yes, well. as far as I understand, the budget on the next superblock is going to be a chunk bigger in terms of BBP, since there was a bug with the superblock in terms of adjustment to inflation, so funding both CameroonONE and compassion on this superblock shouldn't be a problem.

I concurred at that time to start slow and steady. But when Rob suggested to start a bit bigger, I didn't see a reason why not. I've talked with Todd and CameroonONE seems about as competent as it gets. Also, with the new site coming up and PR starting soon it's great to have three well funded charities at our side (since BLOOM got about the same amount of BBP).

I do agree that something could be said about spreading the funding over a few superblocks, but if we do it this way, we can fund them for a whole year instantaneously and from there on focus our attention on paying the premiums for compassion and maybe take on a few more orphans at the time while doing that.

The value in BBP vs dollars is going to fluctuate of course. We have no idea how much BBP will be worth at the time of the next superblock, so the exact funding can only be certain after everything is converted to dollars.

If sanctuaries want to vote in favor of this proposal, they can use the following command:

Code: [Select]
gobject vote-many 6ca3cdfbbd557946cb776871308797406eb1a942bd866b67b4cc906c2bfa2bea funding yes
(you can check the validity in the pool of course).

If the 4000 dollars can't be collected with the requested BBP, I will add a new proposal the next round to meet the requirements to sponsor 14 children for a whole year and start our collaboration with CameroonONE in a big way!

This sounds like a reasonable cost for 14 children, that means we are technically helping 14 children for $24 a month each ($4000 / 14 / 12) = $24.

Ill be voting yes for this, Id like to expand our relationship to include Cameroon and it would be nice to see 14 more children being sponsored in our portfolio.

Hi everyone. Everyone at CameroonONE would like to thank you for your recent decision to begin some initial sponsorships of the children in our program. We cannot thank you all enough for what you do for the parentless children of this world and for your generosity toward the most vulnerable demographic. Your donations will do a lot of good in the communities that we work in and will help educate children in secure family environments. I am available to answer any questions at any time at todd.justin@cameroonone.org and we look forward to continuing this relationship as both of our organizations expand. In addition, we will be attending the Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit this May in Dallas and we will be certain to make people aware of the generosity and good work of the BiblePay community. Again, thank you all.

The 1M BBP donation converted to USD $1880 in the end. Since we set out to sponsor 14children for a year, with a cost of $4000 in total, I will be adding modest proposals until we reach our goal. I was thinking about 500.000 BBP per month until we reach our goal.

Do others agree with my plan?

I just created a proposal for round two of the CameroonONE funding. I want most of the available funds to go to Compassion, so I created a proposal for a reasonable 500'000 BBP, and will continue to add proposals for every superblock after the next until we reach the 4000 dollar threshold and the 14 children are sponsored for the full year ahead.

If you'd like to vote in favor of this proposal, please use the following command:
Code: [Select]

Of course, you can double-check this command in the pool :)

Is it okay if I make a tweet about CameroonONE?

What would you guys like the tweet to say?

Id like to mention the number of orphans sponsored by CameroonONE,
link CameroonOne's twitter and website,
say a sentence about CameroonONE
and add a picture or two of the orphans.

Just let me know if that is okay!

Hi everyone. Attached you can see the receipt for the sold BBP for CameroonONE thus far. We're at $3671.18 of the total requested $4000. That leaves us with 328.82 dollars still needed to pay ahead for the 14 children for the entire year. This will be 'round 3'.

BBP seems quite stable around the $0.003 mark, so that would translate to nearly 110.000 BBP. I'm going to ask for a bit more to cover for
1. The proposal itself (2500 BBP)
2. Price fluctuations
3. Costs to transfer funds from c-cex to coinbase
4. Costs for transferring from coinbase to bank-account (don't know if costs are involved in this actually).

So I'm going to ask for 125.000 BBP in total, and hopefully we'll get just a bit above the $4000 mark!

Hi everyone. I just wanted to update you on our organization's progress. CameroonONE will continue to be our Cameroon project, but we have begun introducing our Transition to Home orphan-care approach to other communities around the world! Our new global child advocacy group is called ONETrack International. The ONETrack website is still being worked on, but it is now live and we are very excited about our continued expansion! Here it is: http://onetrackinternational.org

Thank you again to everyone at BiblePay for your support and we look forward to taking the CameroonONE/BiblePay relationship to new regions! Have great weekend!
