For the most part, there are a lot of generous people in the crypto sector. There are a number of good causes that have benefited greatly thanks to contributions from those in the sector.
One recent fundraising drive was led by a Twitter user called @KingBlue_XRP. This was a drive with XRP and the benefactor is the St. Jude Children’s Research Project.
This fundraisings drive has just hit its latest milestone, with more than 21,000 XRP now having been donated. This drive first started on the 27th of June 2018 and this goes to show what can be done in just a few months.
There have been regular updates provided on Twitter as to how this drive is going. So far, there have been more than 705 tips given through the XRP Tip Bot and 84 XRP has been donated through Coil. This is in addition to 19,403 XRP that has been donated.
In response to this campaign, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been very thankful for all of the efforts that have been put towards this drive. They are planning to punt in place proper mechanisms so they can receive these crypto-based donations from those people from all across the world.
They said: “@KingBlue_XRP Thank you for your unique effort to collect XRP for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! We are in the process of setting up mechanisms to collect XRP and other cryptocurrencies from you and likeminded generous givers. Stay tuned!!”
The hospital is based out of Memphis, Tennessee and they help to cure significant diseases that children are battling with. It is a noble cause and it is great to see the crypto community getting behind it in such a major way.
