It is not just ordinary Boston residents who are caring about the brave Boston firefighters as even three sophomores at the University of Georgia too have come up with their innovating idea to collect funds to help them. It will be in addition to a Lieutenant Walsh – Firefighter Kennedy Memorial Fund to help the two firefighters who lost their lives recently.
The three enthusiastic students who realize their role in helping the two Boston firefighters Lt. Ed Walsh and Firefighter Mike Kennedy are getting assistance from various segments. According to Brandon Mintz, the founder of CashToCrypo LLC the Athens-based company is holding a Bitcoin fundraiser for the families of the Boston firefighters.
Playing their role as valuable contributors to the society, Mintz informs that this week his group will be personally donating 50 percent of their profits, up to $5,000, to help the families of these fallen heroes. He said that his organization works as an agent for a larger company called Expresscoin and the CEO of that company has agreed to match their donations.
Mintz is not alone in the great pursuit as he is being assisted by his two friends Conner Mckeeth and Harris Waqar with whom he started the company in January this year. The trio is looking for expanding the role Bitcoin can play in fundraising and helping the ones who showed great courage and commitment to their job.
Bitcoin Can be Extremely Suitable for Fundraisers
Apart from helping out the two deceased firefighters, the fundraiser event will also help people know about the digital currency and the role it can play in humanitarian assistance. It is not new the first Bitcoin fundraiser being organized; in a similar attempt, a group of people donated a handsome amount to Bitcoin founder Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto.
The expanding role of Bitcoin which has till now been used for buying goods and services without involving third parties such as banks and credit card issuers, is a welcome signal for thousands of supporters and advocates. The three students at the University of Georgia are optimistic about the event and the role this digital currency can play.
Mintz believes that Bitcoin is going to take off and be big. It it not just easier to pay people using Bitcoin, but also helps them save costs as they do not need to pay charges unlike other payment options such as PayPal.
