Welcome to week 2 of The Weekly Hive Charity Giveaway!

Give, give, give! we all scream. But, how about having a chance to get something back?

The Weekly Hive Charity Giveaway is a way to donate to verified charities on Hive that doesn't burden the reward pool.

For only 1 $ HBD per week, all our supporters have a chance to win giveaway prizes totalling 50% of the $ HBD collected.

Week 2 of the giveaway is now officially OPEN. See below for details


To participate send 1 $ HBD to @combination. Include the transfer memo Weekly Hive Charity Giveaway

~ News and Notice ~

  • So far for week 2, we have 5 participants.
  • Week 1 was a smashing success with a total of 21 total participants.
  • Here are the results of the previous week, congratulations once again to the lucky winners.
    --we have decided to make posts while the draws are lasting longer than a week, or if we have special news and ideas.
  • Maybe you have noticed the @combination account has received a generous delegation of 10000 HP. You may or may not receive a vote if you produce content. Don't worry it has nothing to do with whether or not you vote, comment or participate in our initiative.
    --We are thinking of ways to use curation to increase participation in this initiative and get the word out.
    --If you have any ideas about how we can improve our curation, or want to delegate to @combination, please let us know. Our goal isn't to make a profit with curation, so we can share but need more thought.

~ About the Weekly Hive Charity Giveaway ~

This is a new way of doing things, so public resources like the reward pool or Hive DAO Proposal system don't need to be used. We feel receiving donations, and not relying on rewards or welfare, is more sustainable ~ Besides, the reward pool is for content and curation. And, the DAO is for the benefit of the Hive blockchain.

What you vote for is your choice and we don't want anyone to take that away from you. You can save your upvotes for content and authors you really like, or to focus on your curation rewards.

Upvotes on our posts are never required to participate but still appreciated to promote, support, and develop this initiative.

~ What's in it for our supporters?~

Helping good causes feels good, but we understand that people work hard for their earnings on Hive. With the Weekly Hive Charity Giveaway, our supporters receive 50% of all $ HBD collected for the giveaway back in $ HBD prizes.

The giveaway prizes are our way to thank the supporters of Weekly Hive Charity Giveaway and to make it worthwhile. The amount returned in prizes is similar to other major charity giveaways! Besides, 50% is the same as the Hive curation reward.

It's simple, you can earn $ HBD by posting on Hive, you can then invest your rewards in a worthy cause and also for a chance to win more.

~ The Charity ~

This week all donations collected will go to @papilloncharity, a trusted, registered and verified charity on Hive.

I sent 1 HBD, but I do not wish to be included in the giveaway. If I win, please donate my winnings to the charity. 🙂


God bless you

Thank you so much :) we will exclude your donation from the draw so the full amount goes to papilloncharity.

Great idea. And @papilloncharity does excellent work. You have my vote and 1 HBD on its way

Your participation is much appreciated. Good Luck!

Giving back to charities and those in need a wonderful way to assist people, @papilloncharity work with the poorest of the poor.

Thank you. We are trying to improve and expand the model for donating. The work of papillon charity is really impressive.

I am in agreement, feeding destitute people needs a constant stream of income, supplying educational tools for poor regions, very varied and neither is easy in a country under such financial strain.

You've got a heart of gold
