It’s been a busy month for the BitGive Foundation so far!

On Saturday, July 11, at Inside Bitcoins in Chicago, Connie Gallippi, founder of the BitGive Foundation, presented a powerful 3-minute video demonstrating the impact of the Bitcoin charity’s efforts in Kenya. The presentation kicked off fundraising for the next phase in BitGive’s philanthropic mission: Bitcoin Charity 2.0.

Read all about the video and Bitcoin Charity 2.0 here.

We also kicked off our 2nd Anniversary Online Auction on Wednesday, July 8th, and the bids are now rolling in. If you haven’t checked the auction site lately, please do.
