Those of you who are reading this for the first time or know nothing about our initiative "Donate a Dollar, It'll Save lives", please go through the links given below to our introductory post and have a read. Who knows, it might lead you to do something good for the world.


Recap:

Those of you who have ever supported us, The BDCommunity, please read this thoroughly and extend your support a little more. Every ounce of it may count. As it might help us save a life or two in the process.

Let's say, every morning you drink coffee, and it's worth about a dollar or so. It's a part of your daily routine. But it's not such an expense you couldn't do with, is it? But, if you donated only that amount using the methods described below, it might feed a poor family of three for one day. In that retrospect, Any amount counts, don't you think?

By now we all know that the ongoing outbreak of SARS-COV-2 is a fast-spreading pandemic resulting in thousands dead and thousands more getting infected every day. So the only successful method to stop it's aggressive spread is to pull yourself away from society and staying at home. But have you ever stopped for a moment to think about those hard-working people who earn hand to mouth?

The construction workers, rickshaw pullers, roadside vendors, homeless shelter-less kids, small-time fishermen, industrial workers, and many others fall in that danger zone. And their only way to survive in this world is to rely on their marginal wages or us consumers buying their services and buying it every day. Or they'd have nothing to eat for the next day. What would they do?

It might be that where you live, the percentage of such populous is meagre. That the federal or local government can afford to support every one of them. But here, in Bangladesh, that percentage is much higher. An estimated ill-fated almost 65 million of our citizens depend on us, the able-bodied ones who can afford to pay for the services they provide which in turn feeds them and their family.

But while we, who can afford to stockpile on foods and live off of that while watching our favourite shows, being in quarantine, isolation or lockdown whatever you name it, they will be jobless. And in their desperate search of finding ways to earn will either lead them to starvation, getting sick or being infected by the SARS-COV-2. All the While you munch away your favourite snacks. Sadly, in Bangladesh, They even had to rely on volunteers to provide them with face masks and hand sanitizers to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as they can't afford to pay for it.

To them, COVID-19 is less scary than being starved to death. So this is your chance to save a life or an entire family from those 65 million of them with just 1 dollar.


Here's how you can help.

  • Till now, we've been collaborating with a local NGO named Bidyanondo Foundation to donate whatever we've collected for the past 4 times. But from now on, we've decided to get more active on our part and give the money using volunteers and participants from our own community. This was agreed in our weekly voice meeting that it's effortless to collect and donate it through an established organization. But the helpless, homeless people living just in minutes distances should get more priority. Hence we'll be raising the money and providing it directly to the people who need it more. The distribution expenses will be provided by us, and every last dime will reach a hand that needs it most.
  • If you donate liquid tokens, they will be converted and given in the respective manner described above, and the certification of the donations will be provided in a follow-up post

Proof of Donation.



Acknowledgement

So far, including all the 4 rounds of collecting donations, we've raised 815.988 USD. This doesn't seem like much, does it? But only this short amount which you've donated effortlessly will go a long away. For example, with this money, we can buy any single supply for at least 815 families for one day. Does this not put a smile on your face? You and we collectively have just saved 815 families from starving at least for one day.

Of course, this is just rhetorical and is an example. But the extent of your donations is equal if not more.

At our Fourth Fundraising Event, the good samaritans of our community have again shown us more support than we had ever hoped for. And So, we'd like to show our gratitude towards you by giving you a shoutout and some positive vibes.

@preparedwombat @coolguy123 @hivewatchers @zaku @rezoanulvibes and our BDV team.

You brave and kind souls have come together to help people in need. We wish you all the beautiful things in the world.

And a special shoutout to our moderator @zaku. He is the one who made it all possible. For his selfless effort at ensuring a better future for our community, we, the whole BDcommunity would like to thank him.

!!Thank you!!
