Update: The campaign was a great success, over $1,100 were raised!
October has at last set in. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and, most importantly, everyone is making their routine changes to pink for the month. BitQuick.co has taken it upon themselves to make the change in color as well, and has selected two fantastic charities to team up with in order to help spread awareness for breast and prostate cancer research.
With Bitcoin becoming an increasingly popular and viable currency, BitQuick.co has undertaken the privilege of expanding Bitcoin’s reach into the hands of two charitable organizations: Pink Ribbon Girls and ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer. For the entire month of October, BitQuick.co will be contributing .5% of every purchase to the groups, split evenly, as well as 100% of any donations sent to 1PinkGMRRhPyMjjR4UFDCwgSEFEneByoyG.
Since its inception in July of 2013, BitQuick.co has allowed users to sell and buy bitcoin instantly via cash deposit or SEPA transfer. With no minimum buy order price, trading bitcoin could never be more attractive for new users. BitQuick.co prides itself on its decentralization and ease of use. More importantly, however, it greatly values and appreciates its loyal and dedicated new user base.
While there are a number of Bitcoin accepting charities in existence, very few exist for the cancer community. As BitQuick.co feels that cancer prevention and awareness deserves the attention of everyone, the website is doing what it can to ensure that research is advanced, awareness is spread, and cancer is eliminated.
The Pink Ribbon Girls have been servicing the breast cancer community since 2001. Young or old, stage I through IV, Pink Ribbon Girls will stop nowhere to help victims fight breast cancer by providing free services such as healthy meals, housekeeping, transportation for receiving treatment and crucial support from peers. The work that they do is greatly appreciated, and BitQuick.co is happy to be able to help them continue to enrich the lives of those fighting breast cancer.
ZeroCancer was created in 1996 with the mission of zero prostate cancer deaths, and zero pain and suffering. Although it is breast cancer awareness month, it would seem appropriate to also contribute to another similar cause. With BitQuick.co having a significant male user base, giving attention to two separate causes will give the site the ability to be even more effective in fighting two of the most debilitating gender-specific cancers to exist. ZERO runs the largest men’s health event series in America, the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge. ZERO has done great things for the prostate cancer community for more than a decade, and will hopefully continue for years to come.
Both organizations are 501c3 non-profit, and they each need the support of the Bitcoin community. Help out with a truly good cause and go pink with BitQuick.co this October!
