LeoFinance community Donation Drive - Check for more details

Authored by @silverstackeruk

Hello LBIer's, last week I wrote about the idea of collectively coming together as a community, not just LBI, LeoFinance. Im aware this account has a big reach and its posts can get into the top 10 trending most days. From time to time, we should use that reach to help other Lions out.

What's the idea?

To buy a PC or Laptop for a Leo Lion that would benefit greatly from it

Why?

There are many LeoFinance users that do not have access to a PC and are restricted to using mobile phones. They could be producing better content, taking part in more projects are even planning to start their own project if they had the access to better tools. We're not talking any Tom, Dick is Harry here, we're talking about buying someone that has already been on LeoFinance, someone that is already part of the community and been contributing, someone the community decides on, not me are any single person.

Why? why not? What're a few bucks to you? If your PC or laptop shut down tomorrow and never booted up again, how long would it take you to replace it? A few hours/days at most for a lot of us I'd assume. Not everyone is lucky to be born into a rich country in the postcode lotto of life. Im rich shaming you, if you have running drinkable water to your house and you can take a hot shower every day, your rich. If you ever have to throw away food from spoilage are cooking too much, your rich my friend. Plus, think of the marketing! LeoFinance users give free PC's to users to use LeoFinance more!!

$500 is enough to buy a decent home PC are laptop easy. It would not be a high-end machine but a huge upgrade from mobile. People donate a few bucks here, a few bucks there and then BOOM, enough to get someone a PC/laptop and make a small change for the better for someone. We all make free money from LeoFinace be it from posting, commenting, curating are providing liquidity to a pool.

How?

We start today, right now. From this post uploaded, we are accepting donations for this for 1 week. We could do 2-3 weeks but 95% of all donations collected will come within the first 3 days. If you wanna get involved, you send the donation, if not you can watch as others donate.

As it's a donation, we'll accept everything on HIVE and the BSC chain. So that's HIVE and any token on hive-engine plus any token on the BSC chain. What about that for easy? When this post pays out,

  • All LEO sent to the lbi-funding account will be converted to bLEO
  • All hive -engine tokens in the lbi-funding account will be converted to LEO and then to bLEO
  • All BSC donations including all bLEO will be cashed out via Binance to my crypto debit card (wirex) where it will stay until it's ready to be used.

Any HIVE chain token
@lbi-funding

Any BSC token
0x5FDb6f66979822cFedbE2541F7f4e2Af340aa290

BTC & ETH fees do not agree with donations and we dont like TRX so...

Who gets the PC/laptop?

When we see what we collect from donations and if we collect enough, we get the word out there that there will be a "Free PC for 1(2) Lucky Leo Lion". I'll put out posts from @lbi-token and @spinvest explaining the giveaway and how to get involved for people. We will ask users that would like the chance to come forward and write a nomination post explaining their situation and how having a PC/laptop would help them out. I guess the more they share, the more we care.

We'll run this for 2 weeks to give people time to write good posts. After 2 weeks have passed. I will gather all nomination post URLs and put them together into 1 post so everyone's nominations are viewable to everyone giving everyone a fair chance at visibility. 1 week after the above post is uploaded, the LeoFinance community votes and picks a winner(s)

How do we buy the winner a PC?

Amazon, eBay, anywhere online that accepts MasterCard. The winner picks what PC/laptop they want and we pay for it and ship it directly to their home. Living in the future is great and the best part is, it's direct, no middlemen cut and people donating will see the results of their donations as i guess an unboxing post by the winner would be uploaded.

For the next week, we're collecting donations to buy a PC, who for?, we dont know yet. There are plenty of deserving people and this could turn into a really good LeoFinance community project. We are quick to help ourselves and expect Khal to pump our bags, we're so spoiled at LeoFinance to the point it's expected. Why not give a little back for once?

Shout to user @unorgmita for the idea 😀

This is a great idea!! I think Amazon is the best place to get a decent computer, but I'm probably a little bias. I shop amazon all the time and am presently searching for a new computer myself. I have seen some really nice ones for as little as $250.00 USD.

I will be making my donation some time on Friday. I have to see what I can buy to help out. It will more than likely be some LEO. I also have some Hivehustler tokens that are just sitting there so I will send most of those.

Yeah, $500 is enough to buy a PC easy on amazon. If the winner is savy, they could $350 laptop, $100 desk and $50 chair.

Thank you for your support. PS, i love amazon as well :)

my cup runneth empty - dammit

I'm trying to save up to get me a new machine - but you're right !

Even though I'm waiting for disability and I'm broke AF, I still have running hot water and I have plenty to eat.

The new ProofOfBRain tribe/token is kicking ass !!! I got in early - so went and dumped some to some and then the 25 $hive to lib-funding.

Tell the winner they got lucky because I'm too damn busy to worry about getting a new dev machine this week LOL

!ENGAGE 100

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I got your donation, I've updated the donation table in the post. 25 HIVE is plenty my friend, if everyone gave 25 HIVE, we'd be laughing.

Thank you for your support. What's a dev machine out of interest?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

i've been trying to learn 3d stuff lately and my laptop has garbage video card - and it's old and overheats if i play anything tougher than minecraft LOL

i've been putzing around learning game dev / ecs in javascript

I need a decent desktop with beefy vid card to learn the 3d stuff

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

I don't have any LBI, I haven't looked into CUB or any of that. I am pushing towards my own milestones and long haul goals and I am trying to improve the overall engagement as much as possible with various ideas in mind...

  • How can I not participate in something like this?

I don't have much but I sent 5 LEO. This is exactly what I want more of on Hive.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I hope we can send multiple times . I will send multiple tokens now but will send more day after tomorrow .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

What a great idea!

Not only does someone get a new laptop but we get to discover a whole load of new people to follow and curate without the effort of searching for them. Not to mention all the comments here just waited to be upvoted. 😂

Can I send a sterling donation direct to you Wirex card?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm myself saving to buy a new laptop, that's why I'm making a really tiny donation, only with some earnings from Hive not putting fiat.

This is an awesome initiative ! I'm too rich to ask for a pc but not enough to help more than those few cents I gave 😅

@unorgmita, I don't know how did you have this idea but it's gold and shows how Hive can really change lives !

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks man.

Not seeing anything with your username come through if you did something. The address is @lbi-funding just to verify.

Thank you for checking out the post and leaving some nice words :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Oh yes i Send it to lbi token, no z problem I'll send it again ! :)

That is a very noble idea. I will send a LEO or two to the cause as soon as I get some. I've got all of mine staked at the moment.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Happy days, thats great. Thank you for the support

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Sent my donation of 3 LEO. Every little bit helps in a donation drive like this.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Got it, thank you.

I've updated the donation table to verify. It doesn't take many LEO these days to buy a PC, only 500. I was looking, last year SPI held 20k LEO that was worth 1100 HIVE are under $1000. This time last year to do something like this would require 10,000 LEO. Crazy?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yea it would be great if we can raise more than 1,000 LEO and buy more than 1 PC. I hope the person who gets it continues to interact with the community and puts it to good use.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I am already excited about the unboxing post and all the entries to win that box. Such a nice initiative. 🧠

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you, the unboxing should be exciting for everyone :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I will try to send multiple small donations whenever I have some liquid tokens.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Excellent idea! I personally know what it's like to suffer from not having the right tools. I have already sent you my donation of 3 LEO. I think that if we all put in a little bit at a time, we can raise more than $500.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

hope there will be regular donation to help the one that really need tools to improve the creativity and effectiveness

Got your donation, thank you very much. I have added it the donation table above.

If things go really well, we could maybe give away 2, that would be awesome. Thank you very much for supporting this idea.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It would be excellent to be able to donate 2 PCs. I think we should make this kind of help every 2 months if we see that there are people in need of these tools. I believe that Hive and Leofinance can change the lives of many people, and I think that in our hands we have the possibility to help those people in need.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Is the account @lbi-funding?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Well, I hope so. I just sent some Hive there. 😅

Got it, thank you very much. I have updated the donation table to verify :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yep, yep

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

OK, let's go with 4 SPI 😉

That is s great idea I can help with repost

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I totally forgot about this. I am more than happy to help out. Let me scrape together some LEO!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

We're nearly half ($227) the target amount of $500 from the initial donations themselves. I'm really guessing we could fund two lucky winners if the traction goes well. As much as I want to participate, I already have my low-budget computer so I'd like to give the blessing to others.

I'll donate some after I get my post payouts too!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great initiative!

30 Hive on the way. :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Wow! I'm going to wait about the nominación process, I work with a 2006 laptop for create all of My content. It's hard buy a new or a used one here. And im rebloging this cause maybe others venezuelan people like me can need it. Bless to all and is awesome to find this kind of iniciatives, just for people like us.

I'm saving to change my pc but even if my pc is old I own a pc so I like this initiative. Donating is always a nice and deserving gesture.
I can't send much and I can't send LEOs because I put them all in stakes.
I have sent 3 HIVE to the account @lbi-funding
Congratulations for this initiative.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I like the idea and I would love to get involved, both to donate and to opt for the donation of the PC, I really do not know what I would do if this old Canaima computer fails me, as far as I have a little more of LEO, I join, greetings.

Sent 20 OZONE, worth $0.737/ea currently. The farms will launch in 11 hours.

Here's the Countdown Timer.

https://ozone.finance/ <--- yet another Defi that looks promising so I dumped some BNB into it, the APR is always INSANE for the first week on these things.

Best of luck to the winner(s) I hope some people who really need and deserve them win it!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

So much for OZONE lol

Lost a fair amount of money on this one... Damn scammers.

Since those went to virtually zero. Here's 20 BUSD instead. LOL

I just sent a small donation, don't have that much ... but as every bit helps I'm pleased to do my part and help a 'cub'

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

this is nice initiative. thanks for using your platform to help people in need. i will try to donate something by tomorrow

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you, much appricated :)

We might beable to help more than 1 person :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Here's my upvote.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

This is a fantastic initiative and having the proper tools are a must for our online work and this awesome blockchain deserves the best!
I invested in a second monitor as a Christmas present and what a game-changer lol
I'm grateful to have a "can't complain" customizable desktop PC but I'm sure some Lions don't even have a laptop and that's a loss of the extra creativity they could throw!
So here's my little donation:
8 LEO and 500 CTP Tokens

Thank you for this initiative and thank you to everyone who is participating :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I got it, thank you very much. I have added you to the donation table above.

Having a 2 screen set up myself, i could not go back to anything less, lol. The investment in an extra screen if you have space is a no brainer but not many people do it.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

This is fantastic. As I have received help from others over my lifetime; I believe that I should pay it forward.

So great to see a good ideia going forward!! There's joy in giving, and my donation has been sent too. Who knows, maybe we can send some joy to more than one little lion! Have a great weekend!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great idea and every little bit adds up rather quickly when it is community driven. There is actually so much we could do.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Just sent in my donation of 5 LEO and it looks like you're near the amount, but you know what? LET'S KEEP GOING! :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Is this project completed? It sounds like a good initiative. I'd like to know that even if someone writes a post and is chosen the recipient of the funds to purchase a laptop or desktop, how can you truly verify the need to be authentic?
