Consumers Research is proud to support San Francisco-based startup ChangeTip as it teams up with Direct Relief, a charity known for its efficient use of donated funds. They are launching an eight-day fundraising campaign that aims to help prevent deaths from pregnancy and childbirth complications, one of which occurs every two minutes in a developing country.
Using Bitcoin incurs practically no transaction or foreign exchange costs, allowing for 100% of donated funds to go toward purchasing prenatal vitamins for 2,000 expectant mothers in the West African nations of Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Here’s how you can help:
- Donate: .0195 bitcoin will buy 1 bottle of vitamins. (They’re worth $5 USD, so keep that in mind with your BTC donations.)
- Re-Tip: Forward your incoming tips to Direct Relief for the week on ChangeTip Causes
- Speak: We’ll be tweeting and posting and making some noise. Join in. #OneSafePregnancy
