MakerDAO joins the #PiDay celebration by encouraging donations to charity
PiDay (March 14th) has been long celebrated as a geek holiday, so MakerDAO, in conjunction with our friends at @SendCrypto, are happy to announce a way for the crypto community to celebrate the date and help make the world a better place.
Thanks to the magic of the @SendCrypto bot, Twitter users are able to donate their Dai, xDai, Ether, or many other supported ERC20 tokens directly from their tweets to one of the many charities just by sending a simple message: “@SendCrypto @EFF $3.14”
Why donate with your crypto?
The benefits are huge. By donating your tokens to charity, a whole host of intermediaries, banks, and random fee collectors are removed in favor of a system that is transparent and instant. That means the least number of people between your donation and the people who need it most.
Maker Matching Donations
Seeing as transparency and social good are fundamental pieces of Maker’s vision, we want #PiDai for #PiDay to be as meaningful as possible. The team at Maker will gladly match any donations that help meet the first three thresholds for each charity.
If donations to NeedsList hit the first three thresholds of $3.14, $31.41, and $314.15, we will match the total sum of $348.70 and send it to NeedsList as well.
If any other charities reach any of those three milestones, we’ll match those too!
Doing good doesn’t get any easier than this: simply tweet to @SendCrypto and add the @ handle of one of the charities below with the amount you’d like to donate.
