Let's Help Our Fellow Beings Who Lost Everything Into The Fire - PLEASE DONATE!

in #steemit5 years ago (edited)

Hello Everybody!

 I don't usually post on social media to demonstrate any kind of help I may offer to my fellow humans, and I definitely never ask for any donations, but this is beyond my powers and pride. I saw this morning with my own eyes the disaster the fire left back in Kineta and I decided to put aside my anger for the filthy politicians of this country and do all I can to help instead of ranting for what happened. 

It's moments like this I wish I was a millionaire to help as many humans as possible, but unfortunately I am not and I have so many responsibilities and other people to look after. Regardless, I will donate 50 Euros from my own pocket to buy medications such as antiseptics, burning creams, clothing toiletries such as baby wipes, pads, toothbrushes and so on, but as you can easily understand, the more money we gather, the more people (and especially children/the elderly) we will help. 

Please donate whatever you can (Steem or SBD are welcome), vote and resteem this post until Friday morning (Greek time) and I promise to take photos and post all the material and receipts of the shopping I do for the sufferers. 

I am sure we are all sad (especially the Greeks) and some of us mad with our irresponsible authorities, but let's put our emotions aside for a moment and help as much as we can with actions. It's not time to be angry right now (even though I am); it's time to be generous and help!


PS. The medications and rest products will be donated on Friday noon to ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΟΣ ΕΡΥΘΡΟΣ ΣΤΑΥΡΟΣ - ΤΜΗΜΑ ΚΟΡΙΝΘΟΥ, Κύπρου 89, Κόρινθος, 20131, ΚΟΡΙΝΘΙΑΣ. Here's the phone number where you can ask about the donation, even though I will take photos of all the material and post them as proof on Steemit: 2741023209.

I can't really tell from your post how to donate. My most liquid asset to use to donate would be bitUSD, bitcoin or bitshares. As you know, powering down with steem takes time.

Thank you very much for the support and interest @onceuponatime. Your vote and resteem is helping a lot already, but if you're interested in offering more, tomorrow noon me and @mr-phoenix plan to go do shopping with our money for the sufferers. You can join us (if you have the time that is) or we can arrange to meet at some point and give us the money you want to contribute.

But I still don't understand how I could hep you with the shopping if my assets are in bitshares, bitUSD and bitcoin?

I want to help. I have gym until about 12:30pm, but would like to be involved after that. Where can I meet you guys?

In this case I am afraid that I have to be like those hotels or stores that go like : "Sorry, we only accept cash, visa or mastercard" lol.

I will email you soon with details :)

Apart from @onceuponatime, I had a couple more people asking about donating in other assets as well as members of the (up until now still in planning stage) BitShares Charity Group. So we decided to go ahead and make this our first initiative. See details here: https://steemit.com/bitshares/@clockwork/hairycanarycoin-the-bitshares-charity-group-and-our-first-intiative-donating-to-the-victims-of-the-wildfires-in-greece

Do you know of fundition.io ?
Give it a search, it's on the steem blockchain also.

Thank you Alex!

I already bought a few hundred euro worth of supplies and medicine yesterday and dropped it off at my local collection center. Was thinking of doing something similar to this as well but you got there first... No point splitting efforts. Upvoting and resteeming

Thank you so much for the support my man. Yes, let's help as much as we can. That's all that matters right now, to HELP our fellow citizens.

Congratulations on the effort you make ...!
Resteem & upvote...!

Thank you so much for the support @annastella. Let's all help as we can !!!

I pray for Greece...
When I heard the news I was worried about you, I hope you and your family are fine. 😘

Upvote and resteem.

We are fine, but so many of our fellow citizens weren't as lucky. That's why we all have to help. Thanks for the interest and support my beautiful friend. God bless you :))))))

I also wrote a post about it, I hope it will be useful :*

Μπράβο για την πρωτοβουλία, η εικόνα στο τέλος με ανατρίχιασε... Μακάρι να βρουν όλοι αυτοί οι άνθρωποι κουράγιο..

Άσε τα είδα απο κοντά και πόνεσε η ψυχή μου αλήθεια. Ευχαριστώ για την στήριξη αδερφέ :))))

I'm with you here! It's such a disaster!

Thank you so much for the support!

You got it, mate!

μπραβο @tkappa...χαιρομαι για την κοινοτητα εδω στο steemit την ελληνικη...βλεπω αλληλουποστηριξη και σεβασμο και με χαροποιει ιδιαιτερα μπροστα στην καταστροφη που βλεπουμε να διαδραματιζεται μπροστα μας

Γειά σου αγαπητέ @funnel. Πραγματικά έχει αρκετά σπουδαία παιδιά το greek-trail που βοηθούν απο την καρδιά τους και τιμούν στο έπακρο την εθνική κληρονομιά μας και το φιλότιμο που μας κληροδότησαν οι προγόνοι μας :)

Φίλε Θοδωρή, συγχαρητήρια για την αυτή την προσπάθεια και το περίμενα να σου πω την αλήθεια, ότι θα έπερνες την πρωτοβουλία να το κάνεις !!!
Θα είμαι αρωγός σε αυτή την προσπάθεια και πιστεύω όλοι στην ελληνική κοινότητα θα αγκαλιάσουν και θα στηρίξουν αυτή την κίνηση ανθρωπιάς και αγάπης !!!! Θα έρθω σε επικοινωνία μαζί σου να κανονίσουμε...!!!! Resteem & upvote....

Σε ευχαριστώ πολύ για την στήριξη Γιώργαρε. Να βοηθήσουμε όπως μπορούμε!!!

Πολύ καλή η κίνηση σου!!! Μπράβο....

Να βοηθήσουμε Νίκο, αυτό μετράει να βοηθήσουμε.

I would happily have donated, but it is already past noon on Friday. Also, The Red Cross has proven itself to be a dishonest group who often do not pass on the money and articles people provide to help specific needs (we saw that happen in the flooding in the USA last year).

Maybe we need a few Steemit Greeks to get together and form a charity group - I personally prefer to trust people I know or know of. There are some well known names in greek-trail I would trust (you are included).

If you do another drive like this one, please let me know (make a list of names as 'mentions').

Thank you for being so caring, you are being a good example to all of us.

You are welcome. I believe that the Red Cross in Greece is very credible but there are many choices and bank accounts where you can deposit money. I will find the best one when the time comes ;)

I will pray for Greece with the deepest thoughts of my heart for their protection.
May God bless you all for your kind efforts...

steemit is a big part of our life...it's a great platform...

Its such a bad situation. I am standing with you. Take courage brother::))

Good morning dear Theodoros. I will contact with mr-phoenix if he can give me an IBAN so i can donate in euros .
Bravo for taking this initiative.

The draw that shows the souls of mother and child heading to the sky is like a stab in the heart...

Nice initiative

May God bless you as continue to support the movement of the needy..

I hope that what you aspire to be accomplished and may Allah make it easy for all humanitarian works so that there will be no more tears to be a sign of sorrow.
