~ 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.


~ Conditions and rules ~

~ The Charity ~

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


We understand not everyone may want to participate in the giveaway, but may still want to donate. If that is the case, please write Donation in the memo or send $ HIVE. You can also just give directly to @papilloncharity.

~ benefactors ~

Although the draw is transparent and provably fair and the charity is a verified non-profit organization, we still feel we should mention our supporters, especially during the first few weeks to help build even more trust.

So far work on the Weekly Hive Charity Giveaway has been done by @papilloncharity who is beneficiary of the 50% donations, and @abitcoinskeptic who is helping with technical aspects of the draw. We also have @tarazkp helping as a curation advisor and delegator.

Other people with well-known Hive accounts have already agreed to endorse the giveaway initiative by the @combination account:
