This fundraiser closed 3 months ago
MITBBS.com is an online Chinese forum, frequented by overseas Chinese students and professionals. There they share information, and exchange insights about life, works and almost everything. By posting to the forum, users earn MITBBS dollars, which they can use to decorate their avatars, or give to other users as a gift.
But now they have found a better use of their MITBBS dollars. They can sell this fake money for real US dollars, which can then be donated, via OCEF, to the kids in rural China.
Yes, it is possible because it actually happened once last year! Tens of MITBBS users donated around 70, 000 MITBBS dollars, which then sold for around $700 US dollars. These dollars bought a few set of Ping-Pong tables for the kids in an Elementary school in Shan-Xi, China. Just look at how happy the kids are when they play!
Now we are trying to copy last year's success. Or even go a little further than that. Some generous MITBBSers have donated to us their MITBBS dollars, which already amount to 160, 000 within just one day, and the number is still growing. Now please come and be our buyers of these MITBBS dollars!
So here's the deal: for each $10 dollars you donate to us via this action, you will receive 1000 MITBBS dollars as a thank-you gift (Please present your receipt at the board of mitocef for your MITBBS dollars). You will leave with MITBBS dollars and happily decorate your avatar, just in time for the holidays; the kids in rural China will receive gifts bought using your US dollars, and they will be happy and warm, too, in the coming winter.
We will decide what we will do with the donations a bit later, depending on how much we receive and what projects we can find to make the best out of that money. It might be another few sets of Ping-Pong tables. It might be another 500 books. It might be clothes that keep the kids warm in the coming winter. Or it might be a combination of the above.
However you can be sure that, we will not abuse your donations and efforts, and you will not regret when we update you, here as well as at MITBBS, with what your donations have brought to the kids. We believe that you will feel as happy as the kids do.
现在我们有望重复、甚至超越这个成绩。 从昨夜开始，短短一天之内，数十位网友共捐赠超过16万伪币； 而这个数字还在增加。我们的目标是，至少20万。这让我们对接下来的义卖充满期待。
