Open Donation Platform -Concept
« on: April 19, 2011, 05:58:17 AM »
The system needs to be based on the following principals:

A) Open: both with source code and the people. There is no anonymity. When you request help your name, - information about you, and the money you receive (if any) will be public record.

B) Decentralized: no single person makes the decision to award a donation. And likewise, no single person will receive a direct donation.

With these principals, combined with the collective intelligence of a social network, the system has hope of achieving the primary objective.

Nice idea. Not sure if it would work. Most people want to donate directly to charities. Dunno...
