$10K Charity Drive for Songs of Love

The Nxt community is currently doing a charity drive for  $10,000,- for the Songs of Love Foundation. Donations welcome at Nxt account 4636321498642303120.

SongsWho is Songs of Love?

The Songs of Love Foundation is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that creates free, personalized, original songs to uplift children and teens currently facing tough medical, physical or emotional challenges. Each CD is professionally produced with lyrics containing the child’s name and references to all of his or her favorite activities, things, people, and pets. Songs are written and performed in any language in the musical style that the child likes best (pop, R&B, rap, rock, alternative, etc.), by a variety of talented professionals.

As each child is unique, so is every ‘song of love’ composition. Since 1996 the Songs of Love Foundation has reached out to over 22,500 children in over 500 hospitals and health care facilities in all 50 states. The songs have often been played to alleviate pain and trauma during painful and scary hospital treatments. The song recipients have played their “songs of love” in all kinds of situations and settings such as car trips to the hospital, show and tell at school, for family and friends in person or on the phone, and even for the doctors and nurses. The children have their “songs of love” always available to them whenever they are feeling down.

What else?

Songs of Love have in the past already accepted Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. This makes them a special. Songs of Love shows that cryptocurrencies are capable of functioning in the “Real World” and have a place there. If Nxt can bring in $10,000 worth of donations, we get to be head sponsor of this charity drive, which will be a perfect entry into the media, as well as of course, having donated $10,000 to a worthy cause!

The organisers of this charity drive, Cointropolis, are both supporters of charity ánd of cryptocurrency. This is a win-win situation for the Nxt community: you can show your support for a charity that makes life a little bit better for children in need and also support Nxt as a cryptocurrency.

What do I need to do?

The charity account created for this drive is 4636321498642303120. You can find more information in this thread. The first goalpost of this drive is 35,000 Nxt, which is at current prices around $2000,-. The end goal is 170,000 Nxt, around $10,000.

Once 35,000 Nxt has been reached, Cointropolis is going to start their media campaign to the mainstream media.

Is the money safe?

The account is held in escrow by the writer of this article. I am the only one holding the secred passphrase. The organisers, nor the recipients cannot touch the Nxt. The passphrase is very strong and I have it on paper and in an encrypted safe. The account will not forge or be open, except for eventual payout.

Summary

So, let’s get to the first goalpost together! The amount of your donation doesn’t matter. 1, 100, 100,000 Nxt, every donation that you feel comfortable to make is welcomed and appreciated! If you don’t want to donate, that’s also fine. We are not here to guilt trip anyone into doing something they don’t want to do. Over the last few hours, the fund has already received 12,000 Nxt in donations. Let’s see if we can keep that up! Donations welcome at Nxt account 4636321498642303120.
