First bitcoin donation campaign for SimplyGiving

Charities don’t rest on their laurels. They are always trying to find new ways to get the population to know them, care for their cause, and donate so their projects can be completed and move forward.

Technology can be of good help for charities and nonprofit organizations. Indeed, it can help with promoting the organization,  launching awareness campaigns, finding new volunteers, etc. New technologies boost nonprofits. Have you ever thought of cryptocurrencies? Bitcoin and its peers are now entering the nonprofit world.

A global movement embraces bitcoin to tackle the world’s social problems 

MYGiving, a global movement advocating good deeds in Malaysia, decided to accept bitcoin donations to engage in some of the world’s biggest social causes. Inspired by Giving Tuesday in the US, MYGiving supports acts of kindness through a series of fundraising. 

SimplyGiving, the organization that launched MYGiving, is always willing to ensure its charity members do not miss out on opportunities offered by technology. That’s why they decided to add a bitcoin payment option to their donation payment methods. For SimplyGiving, this step forward with cryptography technology represented a way to reach international contributors who wish to play a part in making the world a better place.

No frontier exist anymore in the generosity world

Between 2% to 9% of the worldwide population owns bitcoin. All those people crave to use their cryptocurrency to buy goods and services as they would with any other payment method. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, etc. aren’t just investments anymore, but practical payment means as well. Their holders are waiting to be able to pay with it at all of their favorite retailers.

As anybody else, cryptocurrency owners are also willing to be generous to the causes that affect them or touch their sensibility. But very few organizations enable bitcoin donations. There is a huge missed potential SimplyGiving wanted to address.

Smooth and easy integration

SimplyGiving enjoyed TripleA dedicated support during their bitcoin integration process. They needed a progression bar to show the advance of donations during the campaign. TripleA support team responded to their request with all the required code and settings for SimplyGiving to display their choose bar. In less than three days, the whole implementation was done and running for tests. A no brainer for MYGiving campaign.

By adding bitcoin payment to their donation possibilities, SimplyGiving gave a massive push to their MYGiving launch in Malaysia and are looking forward to implementing bitcoin payment for all their fundraising campaigns.
