Tipping with the help of bitcoin is an idea brought forward by ChangeTip, which also happens to be one of the most popular tipping services on the web. To help give back to the community, ChangeTip has announced a Social Giving Challenge, meant to help the homeless by giving them warm meals.
While this is not the first time the digital currency is used to support charitable causes, the move represents great means of encouraging others to help those who are less lucky. The challenge’s goal is to bring a total of 2,000 meals to the homeless, and this can be easily accomplished by donating $1.95 in bitcoin, which is the price for one meal.
As the festive period is also the season of giving and caring about others, the challenge shouldn’t be too hard to complete, considering the fact that the bitcoin community is known to be generous.
For those who are interested in this campaign, they can navigate to the designated page on ChangeTip, and complete the donation. Once this is done, a tweet will be sent out confirming your participation. The bitcoin raised will then be sent to Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, which is a non-profit organization based in Philadelphia, PA.
For US citizens, these donations are also tax-deductible, which is great news.
