Sean's Outpost and Just-Dice

Thanks to Momph for this great write-up. Keep it going, Dicers!



I've spent a fair few years homeless.  It's a horrible situation to be in, espically when it's caused by issues you can't control.  I'm fortunate enough to not be in that situation now.

But I still remember what it's like not having food or somewhere to sleep.  It's a really horrible feeling.  I'm lucky enough to live in a city that has really good support for homeless people, and really lucky that my homeless adventures have always been in cities with good support.

But this isn't the case for a lot of people.  In some places, if you don't have a home, you're fucked.  You can't get a job, you can't get social security etc.  If you have a good sense of pride you might refuse to beg and try to busk instead (which helps a little, but really dependant on your skills).

All of the above is why http://seansoutpost.com/ excites me so much.  They're a charity that accepts bitcoin to help the homeless community in Pensacola, FL, US.  It's a small place to start, but they plan on expanding.

A few weeks ago Likashing (a just-dice legend) started donating 10btc at a time to Sean's Outpost, and people started following.  Hidari and myself have been keeping track: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApitNf1z49KwdFV3eGN6T2V5b19YLWk5V1dybGhMN0E&usp=drive_web#gid=0 and we're now up to 51btc (at time of writing, that's $42,640 according to preev) donated to Sean's Outpost.

That's amazing!  From http://bitcoinmagazine.com/6939/seans-outpost-announces-satoshi-forest/ it costs about $1.25 to make a bagged lunch, so this just-dice.com drive has made 34,137 meals (math from just-dice.com chat).
